Subject [Studio] Review for Apache Directory Studio 1.2.0 RC1 announcement
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2008 13:47:43 GMT

Here's the release announcement I have prepared for the release.

Feel free to give your comments or improve it before it is out (probably
tomorrow when the mirrors are up and the website is updated).

The Apache Directory Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Directory Studio 1.2.0 RC1, a major update of its Eclipse based LDAP Browser
and Directory client.

You can download Apache Directory Studio 1.2.0 RC1 as a standalone RCP
application for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows here:

You can also install it directly in Eclipse using this update site:

Here are a few highlights of this new version:
    * The new Apache DS feature makes its introduction in Apache Directory
Studio. This new feature allows you to run the latest version Apache DS
(1.5.3) from within Apache Directory Studio or Eclipse and makes it super
easy (and fast) to create and run an LDAP Server.
    * The Apache DS Configuration plugin now supports the 4 latest versions
of Apache DS. It's now capable to read/write the server.xml file of an
Apache DS 1.5.0, 1.5.1, 1.5.2 and 1.5.3.
    * The Search Logs view has been added to the LDAP Browser.
    * We've also added the support to use the proxy features of Eclipse
inside Studio as well as improved the platform (useful actions have been
added to the platform, the Mac OS X application now respects the standards
of Apple for the "About" and "Preferences" actions, etc.).
    * We've also fixed some bugs dealing with schema files and schema
parsing in the Schema Editor and LDAP Browser plugins.

Developed as a sub-project of the Directory Top Level Project, Apache
Directory Studio is an Eclipse RCP application that takes full advantage of
the benefits inherent in the Eclipse platform. Composed of several Eclipse
(OSGi) plugins, Apache Directory Studio can be easily upgraded with
additional plugins. Apache Directory Studio plugins can even run within a
full installation of Eclipse itself.

Apache Directory Studio contains 6 major features:
* an LDAP Browser feature
* an LDIF Editor feature
* an ACI Editor feature for Apache Directory Server
* a Schema Editor feature
* an Apache DS feature
* an Apache DS Configuration feature
