the release of the last version (1.4.0) in April.

or LDIF editing mode)
  - Speed improvements when deleting and importing entries

  - Added MS GUID and SID Value Editors
  - Added Certificate Value Editor

  - Opened LDIF editors are now restored between launches
* Apache DS
  - Latest version of Apache DS (1.5.5) now bundled
