The Apache Directory Team is proud to announce the availability of the
1.0.0-M13 version of the Apache Directory LDAP API.

The Apache Directory LDAP client API is an ongoing effort to provide an
enhanced LDAP API, as a replacement for JNDI and the existing LDAP API
(jLdap and Mozilla LDAP API).

This is a schema aware API, with some convenient ways to access a LDAP
server. This API is not only targeting the Apache Directory Server, but
should work pristine with any LDAP server.

It's also an extensible API : new Controls, schema elements and network
layer could be added or used in the near future. It's also OSGi capable.

In this milestone, we have fixed some issues, some of them being critical:

Here is the release note for Apache Directory LDAP API 1.0.0-M13:

Bugs :
------

[DIRAPI-88] - RDN parsing fails with values containing a # character followed by other characters
[DIRSHARED-135] - LdapNetworkConnection should be thread-safe
[DIRSHARED-136] - NPE in AntlrSubtreeSpecificationParser when initialized with an empty schema manager
[DIRSHARED-137] - Logically incorrect filter construction while parsing DSML search request
[DIRSHARED-138] - Cannot transform SearchRequestDsml object to DSML format

Improvement :
-------------

[DIRAPI-87] - The search() method does not return the same result if it's done with a SearchRequest or with parameters
