-This documentation is about the newly LDAP API developped at the Apache Software Foundation.
We expect this API will be a replacement for all the ancient API ([jLdap](http://www.openldap.org/jldap/),
[Mozilla LDAP SDK](http://www.mozilla.org/directory/) and [JNDI](http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/jndi/index.html)).
+This document is about the LDAP API, developed at the Apache Software Foundation. It's a
replacement for outdated Java/LDAP libraries like ([jLdap](http://www.openldap.org/jldap/),
[Mozilla LDAP SDK](http://www.mozilla.org/directory/) and [JNDI](http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/jndi/index.html)).

things) in the [Advanced User's Guide].
