I've seen the term "modern version" used several time on this list in
past 6 months. Is there a community-accepted definition of this term? Is
it the latest release or the latest .x release?
The distinction is "modern" vs. "historic" - OpenLDAP 2.2 was moved to
Historic status in January 2006. The original poster referenced 2.2.6,
which was released February 2004. By any measure, in computer terms,
that is ancient. When a release is declared Historic that means, among
other things, that it will no longer be supported by the project - bug
reports against them are not investigated, bug fixes for newer versions
are not back-ported, etc.
Modern version generally refers to a recent release of the latest
minor tree branch.
Or in this case, a fairly recent 2.3.x release.
