Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 build 4.1.3441.0 released

April 22nd saw Microsoft release a new hotfix rollup package (build 4.1.3441.0) for Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010 R2.  The official documentation for this build can be found on the Microsoft support website under KB article kb2832389.  Download link is here.

There’s quite a few issues fixed in this build, that I won’t reiterate here (although the change in behaviour to how failures in Update-Recipient were handled has reverted back).  There are also some important new features in FIM Synchronization Service – namely ECMA 2.2:

  1. MetadirectoryServicesEx.dll is no longer dependent on FIM Synchronization Service, therefore you can load an ECMA2 connector independently of the FIM Synchronization Service which makes various testing scenarios much easier.  This is a big deal and is here in advance of the PowerShell connector now available on connect.microsoft.com being generally available – it makes writing and debugging the PS scripts manageable.
  2. New capabilities page makes it possible to ask the user for information and connect to the target directory and use that information for the Connector’s capabilities.
  3. No longer need to provide the object type for update and delete operations in delta import.
  4. Support is added for DN as an anchor for LDAP based directories.
