Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Directory Studio 1.3.0 released
Date Mon, 24 Nov 2008 14:17:32 GMT
The Apache Directory Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Directory Studio 1.3.0, a new major update of its Eclipse based LDAP
Browser and Directory client.

You can download Apache Directory Studio 1.3.0 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 RCP application now bundles Eclipse 3.4 dependencies
 * A lot improvements in the LDAP Browser
   * DSML Import/Export is now working again (with new export options)
   * Ability to save a configuration as an URL
   * Ability to create a new Context Entry
   * New "GoToDN" Dialog
   * Fixed the display of values of attributes with 'Generalized Time'
   * Many more feature requests and bug fixes
 * The Apache DS Configuration Editor now reads the configuration of Apache
   DS 1.5.4
 * The Apache DS plugin now bundles Apache DS 1.5.4 dependencies and runs
   Apache DS instances version 1.5.3 (created with Studio 1.2.0) and version
   1.5.4 (created with Studio 1.3.0).

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
