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.
