Hi all,

Apache Directory Studio version 1.3.0 RC2 has been released almost one month ago and from the user input we've received, I think it's now safe to declare this release as the 1.3.0 final version.

For your information, there won't be any new build needed for releasing this version, we just need to update the website to declare this release as the final one.

Here's a little recap of what's new in this version:
    * the RCP application now bundles Eclipse 3.4 dependencies
    * DSML Import/Export is now working again (with new export options)
    * a lot improvements in the LDAP Browser
          * Ability to save a configuration as an URL
          * Ability to create a new Context Entry
          * New GoTo Dialog
          * Fixed the display of values of attributes with 'Generalized Time' syntax
          * Many more feature requests and bug fixes
    * the Apache DS Configuration Editor now reads the configuration of Apache DS 1.5.4
    * the Apache DS plugin now bundles Apache DS 1.5.4 dependencies and runs Apache DS instances version 1.5.3 (created with Studio 1.2.0) and version 1.5.4 (created with Studio 1.3.0).


Here are the complete release notes from JIRA:
