Subject Re: [Studio] Review for Apache Directory Studio 1.2.0 RC1 announcement
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2008 20:04:06 GMT

sounds great. I marked two typos inline.

BTW: Is there a Jira for the new killer feature 'ApacheDS plugin'? It
deserves its own Jira Task and should be mentioned in the Jira Release
Notes.

Regards,
Stefan
