About the project:

     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

Project's web site:


After years of being hosted by Michael Ströder (thank you!), the 
project's website was merged with the documentation, and is hosted at 
Read the Docs & Cloudflare.

Released 3.0.0b2 2017-12-11

Changes since 3.0.0b1:

The module `ldap.async` is renamed to `ldap.asyncsearch`, due to
`async` becoming a keyword in Python 3.7.
The old module name is deprecated, but will be available as long
as Python 3.6 is supported.

* Use custom ldap.LDAPBytesWarning class
* Rename ldap.async to ldap.asyncsearch

* Support None for set_option(OPT_TIMEOUT) and OPT_NETWORK_TIMEOUT
* Fix error reporting of LDAPObject.set_option()
* Change memory handling in attrs_from_List()

* Remove workaround for OpenLDAP NSS issue

* Use uniform shebang in all demos

* Provide build deps for Alpine and CentOS
* Move sample workflow out of the main Contributing guide

* Add valgrind target to check for memory leaks
* Minimal configuration for pytest
