Find a new release of python-ldap:

python-ldap provides an object-oriented API to access LDAP directory
servers from Python programs. It mainly wraps the OpenLDAP 2.x libs for
that purpose. Additionally it contains modules for other LDAP-related
stuff (e.g. processing LDIF, LDAPURLs and LDAPv3 schema).

Ciao, Michael.

Released 2.3.9 2009-07-26

Changes since 2.3.8:

* All modules (ldap, ldif, dsml and ldapurl) have common version number now
* Non-exported function ldif.needs_base64() was abandoned and is now
  implemented as method LDIFWriter._needs_base64_encoding().
  This allows sub-classes of LDIFWriter to implement determining whether
  attribute values have to be base64-encoded in a different manner and is
  the same approach like in class dsml.DSMLWriter.
* LDAPUrlExtension._parse() now gracefully handles LDAP URL extensions
  without explicit exvalue as being set with implicit value None.

* New LDAP option constant ldap.OPT_X_SASL_NOCANON supported
  in LDAPObject.get/set_option()
