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, LDAP URLs and LDAPv3 schema).

Project's web site:



$ md5sum python-ldap-2.4.20.tar.gz
$ sha1sum python-ldap-2.4.20.tar.gz
$ sha256sum python-ldap-2.4.20.tar.gz

Ciao, Michael.

Released 2.4.20 2015-07-07

Changes since 2.4.19:

* New wrapping of OpenLDAP's function ldap_sasl_bind_s() allows
  to intercept the SASL handshake (thanks to René Kijewski)

* Added exceptions ldap.VLV_ERROR, ldap.X_PROXY_AUTHZ_FAILURE and

* Abandoned old syntax when raising ValueError in modules ldif and
  ldapurl, more information in some exceptions.
* ldap.ldapobject.LDAPObject:
  New convenience methods for SASL GSSAPI or EXTERNAL binds
* Refactored parts in ldif.LDIFParser:
  - New class attributes line_counter and byte_counter contain
    amount of LDIF data read so far
  - Renamed some internally used methods
  - Added support for parsing change records currently limited to
    changetype: modify
  - New separate methods parse_entry_records() (also called by parse())
    and parse_change_records()
  - Stricter order checking of dn:, changetype:, etc.
  - Removed non-existent 'AttrTypeandValueLDIF' from ldif.__all__
* New mix-in class ldap.controls.openldap.SearchNoOpMixIn
  adds convience method noop_search_st() to LDAPObject class
* Added new modules which implement the control classes
  for Virtual List View (see draft-ietf-ldapext-ldapv3-vlv) and
  Server-side Sorting (see RFC 2891) (thanks to Benjamin Dauvergne)
  Note: This is still experimental! Even the API can change later.
