Basically Yes.

For simple authentication, it doesn't make any difference.

The support for custom schema elements in the 1.5 branch is much better 
than in 1.0, dynamic schema modifications for instance are not possible 
in 1.0.

What do you exactly mean by "Custom partition"? You can define your own 
partitions (suffixes) for entry storage in both versions. Or do you plan 
to write your own partition implementation (backend)? Which is also 
possible in both versions, but not an easy task.

Yes. It should work with any LDAPv3 compliant directory server, by the way.

Thanks for considering our software. Feel free to ask, if you need any help.
