We have not been using the "interest" list for a while.
This was probably not a good idea since it lead to the wrong conclusion.
We are actively working on the FreeIPA 2.0
that is coming out later this year.

It is going to include:
* CS integration for service and host certs
* DNS integration
* Automount
* Netgroups
* NIS migration
* Host based access control
And more...

A separate related project we are working on is SSSD:
It provides the framework of different identity and authentication
sources on the client side.

IPA will have means to hook into SSSD as identity and authentication source.

We are also looking into more native integration with AD.
We are planning to take advantage of Samba 4 and use it as a facade and
pretend that IPA is another AD forest.
This effort started but is not a part of freeIPA 2.0.
One can read more about it here:
