  • Fixed an issue that prevented dumping the changelog to a file (both versions)
  • Updated docker configuration for Fedora (both versions)
  • Enable argument completion in the CLI (both versions)
  • Added additional health checks to dsconfg (both versions)

Apache Directory LDAP API 2.0.0

Although I haven’t seen any official announcement, the Apache Directory LDAP API website suggests that version 2.0.0 of the API was released last Wednesday, November 13. It appears that the primary changes over the previous 2.0.0-AM4 build are to fix a few issues, including a problem in the handling of an unbind operation that could prevent a connection from being reused, improper parsing of a DN with a hex-encoded RDN value, and an issue that could lead to incomplete loading of schema information.
