Dear Spring Community,
Spring LDAP version 1.2.1 has been released. This is a minor release, introducing an interesting new feature and a few bug fixes, including the following:
Eric Dalquist has contributed a powerful pooling library. Pooling support is provided by PoolingContextSource, which can wrap any ContextSource and pool both read-only and read-write DirContext objects. Jakarta Commons-Pool is used to provide the underlying pool implementation.
ldapbp dependency fixed
Fixed a problem in AbstractContextSource which led to an unnecessary reference to the LDAP Booster Pack (ldapbp).
And as a reminder for those of you who haven't yet upgraded to 1.2:
Due to some package inconsistencies the package structure was modified in version 1.2-RC1 of Spring LDAP. Consequently, version 1.2.1 is NOT a drop-in replacement for version 1.1.2. A detailed upgrade guide is however provided, and upgrading should not present very much trouble.
