Sadly, no. We are discussing about moving back to a docbook formated 
documentation for 2.0, as we now realize that writing a documentation 
based 100% on a wiki is not reasonable.

So what we have is what is on the wiki.

And it's far from being complete :/

Currently, we are doing our best to release a 2.0 asap (ie, in the next 
two months), fixing many of the remaining bugs plus polishong some 
important features ( ACI, replication, Disaster Recovery System, etc). 
We are doing some progress, not as fast as we would like, but it's 
definitively on its way.

At the same time, we also have started to work on the 2.0 documentation, 
which is more or less a reworked 1.5 documentation. This is a 
preliminary work, and nothing has been done so far.

If you are interested in participating in such an effort, that would be 
a pleasure !

Well, LDAP hasn't evolved a lot since then :) The parts that are quite 
dfferent from what you have learnt are those we have introduced into the 
server :
- full X.500 ACI
- full X.500 administrative model
- triggers/store proc
- MM replication

plus a few other things. But we are very close to the LDAP RFCs.

tell us if a 6 months effort does not frighten you :)
