Starting with OpenLDAP v2.5 Symas has discontinued distribution of the Symas OpenLDAP for Solaris, Windows, and Red Hat Linux (SOFL) packages. In their place, Symas has made the Symas OpenLDAP packages freely available for all users. There is no sign-up, cost, or obligation for downloading (from and installing these packages.

The packages known as "Symas OpenLDAP Gold" are now simply called "symas-openldap". The new symas-openldap package contains everything from SOFL and now includes all advanced features that were exclusive to Symas OpenLDAP Gold.
