Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642) was Italian polymath. He was an astronomer, physicist and engineer. Galileo studied speed and velocity, gravity and free fall, the principle of relativity, inertia, motion, pendulums, inventing thermoscope, military compass, he is famous for using telescope for scientific observation of celestial bodies. Overall Galileo made significant achievements in many fields of human knowledge, science and technology.
Similarly to Galileo himself, the reach of midPoint 3.9 is surprisingly broad. There are significant user interface improvements, improvements to security (especially multi-tenant authorizations), major improvements to internal provisioning mechanism and a large selection of smaller improvements. There are several major improvements to the midPoint ecosystem: significant improvements to connector framework, major release of LDAP connector, new GUI testing framework, containerization improvements and so on. MidPoint 3.9 is yet another major milestone on a midPoint journey.

Currently there are no plans to remove support for deployed midPoint installation using a WAR file. However, it is possible that this deployment form will get phased out eventually unless there are active subscribers preferring this deployment method. MidPoint subscription is strongly recommended if you plan to use this method in the future.

MidPoint is software that is designed for easy upgradeability. We do our best to maintain strong backward compatibility of midPoint data model, configuration and system behavior. However, midPoint is also very flexible and comprehensive software system with a very rich data model. It is not humanly possible to test all the potential upgrade paths and scenarios. Also some changes in midPoint behavior are inevitable to maintain midPoint development pace. Therefore we can assure reliable midPoint upgrades only for midPoint subscribers. This section provides overall overview of the changes and upgrade procedures. Although we try to our best it is not possible to foresee all possible uses of midPoint. Therefore the information provided in this section are for information purposes only without any guarantees of completeness. In case of any doubts about upgrade or behavior changes please use services associated with midPoint subscription or purchase professional services.
