Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Directory Studio 2.0 M1 released

The Apache Directory Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Directory Studio 2.0 M1, a first milestone release of the version 2.0
of its Eclipse based LDAP Browser and Directory client.

You can download Apache Directory Studio 2.0 M1 as a standalone RCP
application for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows here:

You can install it directly in Eclipse using this update site:

Here are a few highlights of this new version:
* The Apache Directory LDAP API has now been integrated in Apache
Directory Studio:
** it is used as default network provider (as a replacement for JNDI -
which is still selectable)
** and also in the Schema Editor plugin for checking the schema inconsistencies
* A new LDAP Servers plugin has been introduced and replaces the
ApacheDS plugin:
** it provides an open way to include LDAP Server adapters which
allows you create and run a new LDAP Server within seconds
** LDAP Server adapters are provided for all ApacheDS versions from
1.5.3 to the latest milestone 2.0 M4).
* A new ApacheDS 2.0 Configuration plugin takes care of editing the
configuration of a 2.0 ApacheDS instance:
** it reads the configuration from the LDIF configuration file on the filesystem
** it can also read the configuration via LDAP using a connection
defined in the LDAP Browser
* The RCP application is based on the latest version of Eclipse (3.7.1):
** it is provided in two versions (32 bit and 64 bit) for each major
operating system (Mac OS X, Linux & Windows)
* There are a lot more new additions, improvements and bug fixes
