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).

Ciao, Michael.

Released 2.5.1 2017-11-12

Changes since 2.4.45:

Mandatory prerequisites:
- Python 2.7.x
- pyasn1 0.3.7+ and pyasn1_modules 0.1.5+

* removed unused code schema.c

* ldap.__version__, ldap.__author__ and ldap.__license__ now
  imported from new sub-module ldap.pkginfo also to setup.py
* Added safety assertion when importing _ldap:
  ldap.pkginfo.__version__ must match _ldap.__version__
* removed stand-alone module dsml
* slapdtest.SlapdObject.restart() just restarts slapd
  without cleaning any data
* Compability changes for pyasn1 0.3.x or newer
  (thanks to Ilya Etingof and Christian Heimes)
* The methods SSSResponseControl.decodeControlValue() and
  VLVResponseControl.decodeControlValue() now follow the coding
  convention to use camel-cased ASN.1 name as class attribute name.
  The old class names are still set for back-ward compability
  but should not be used in new code because they might be removed
  in a later release.
* removed SSSRequestControl from ldap.controls.KNOWN_RESPONSE_CONTROLS

* added explicit reconnect tests for ReconnectLDAPObject

Released 2.4.45 2017-10-09

  (thanks to Aigars Grins)

* removed work-around in t_cext.py

Released 2.4.44 2017-09-08

Changes since 2.4.43:

* more fine-grained GIL releasing in function l_ldap_result4()
