The Apache Directory Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Directory Studio 1.5.1, a bug fix and enhancement update of its Eclipse based LDAP Browser and Directory client.

You can download Apache Directory Studio 1.5.1 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:
 * a bug where a modify operation could be sent to the server when refreshing the LDAP Browser view
 * correctly handling entries with a hash sign (#) in their DN
 * glitches and performance improvements in the UI
 * typos in the french translation

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
