Subject: ANNOUNCE ocamldap 2.1.5
I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Ocamldap 2.1.5.

(NOTE to hump maintainers, since 2.0 Ocamldap has been a native Ocaml  
   it should no longer be categorized as a binding to a C library)

Ocamldap is a toolkit for working with LDAP directory services,  
features include
- A full featured, high performance LDAP client library
     - A set of low level primitives similar to the C library
     - A high level object oriented interface
     - Schema aware local object representations
     - An experimental library for account management
     - An experimental implementation of transactions  
- A library for constructing LDAP servers
- An rfc2252 schema checker
- An LDIF v1 parser and pretty printer (including change records)
- An ldap filter parser and pretty printer
- An ldap dn parser and pretty printer

Major Changes Since the Last Announce
- Major improvement in the documentation
- I spent a lot of time with Apple's excellent Shark tool, and was  
able to get a 2.5x decoder speedup (Parsing 4.0 Mb/s of BER on an  
800Mhz G4). Based on the data I'm seeing from Shark I do not expect  
any further major performance increases in the decoder, but given the  
level of performance it is currently at, and the age of my hardware,  
I see no reason to care.
- Experimental implementation of transactions across multiple objects
- Some bug fixes

Ocamldap is available on GODI, and via
