Find a new pre-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).

Wrapped OpenLDAP's ldap_whoami_s(). Fixed incompability with OpenLDAP 2.2 
libs. Code cleaning.

Released 2.0.0pre20 2004-03-xx

Changes since 2.0.0pre19:

* Removed doc strings from functions.c
* Removed probably unused wrapper function l_ldap_dn2ufn() since
   ldap_dn2ufn() is deprecated in OpenLDAP 2.1+
* Removed wrapper function l_ldap_is_ldap_url().
* Removed macro add_int_r() from constants.c since it caused
   incompability issues with OpenLDAP 2.2 libs
   (Warning: all result types are Integers now! Use the constants!)
* New wrapper function l_ldap_whoami_s()

* New wrapper method LDAPObject.whoami_s()

* Removed is_ldap_url(). The more general function
   ldapurl.isLDAPUrl() should be used instead.

* Added class cram_md5 (for SASL mech CRAM-MD5)

* Use constants for search result types (see note about
   add_int_r() above).
