Subject Apache Directory Studio 1.2.0 RC1 released
Date Fri, 25 Jul 2008 13:25:35 GMT
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 of 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
    * 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,
    * 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
