file (used to be in the /bin directory).
Right. The configuration is now stored in the DIT, and can be updated
eitehr using Studio - the prefered way - or by modifying the associated
ldif file, assuming you understand the potential risks.

The apacheds-tools.jar has been removed, it was totally buggy.

a technical writer, I can get around certain roadblocks, but not when the directory structure
and file name change.
We have documented the new configuration in teh site - which will be
published in the next few days -. You can check the stagging site here :
