* 13 minor enhancements:
* Added Net::LDAP::Entry#to_ldif
* Supported rootDSE searches with a new API.
* Added [preliminary (still undocumented) support for SASL authentication.
* Supported several constructs from the server side of the LDAP protocol.
* Added a "consuming" String#read_ber! method.

* Belatedly added a patch contributed by Kouhei Sutou last October.
The patch adds start_tls support.

* Added Net::LDAP::Filter#parse_ber, which constructs Net::LDAP::Filter
objects directly from BER objects that represent search filters in
LDAP SearchRequest packets.
* Added Net::LDAP::Filter#execute, which allows arbitrary processing
based on LDAP filters.
* Changed Net::LDAP::Entry so it can be marshalled and unmarshalled.
Thanks to an anonymous feature requester who only left the name
* Added support for binary values in Net::LDAP::Entry LDIF conversions
and marshalling.
* Migrated to 'hoe' as the new project droid.
* 14 bugs fixed:

Matthias Tarasiewicz.

* Supported attributes containing blanks (cn=Babs Jensen) to
Filter#construct. Suggested by an anonymous Rubyforge user.
* Added missing syntactic support for Filter ANDs, NOTs and a few other
* Extended support for server-reported error messages. This was provisionally
added to Net::LDAP#add, and eventually will be added to other methods.

Thanks to Kouhei Sutou for spotting it.
* Patched filter syntax to support octal \XX codes. Thanks to Kouhei Sutou
for the patch.
* Applied an additional patch from Kouhei.
* Allowed comma in filter strings, suggested by Kouhei.
* 04Sep07, Changed four error classes to inherit from StandardError rather

* Minor bug fixes here and there.

* Initial release.
* Client functionality is near-complete, although the APIs
are not guaranteed and may change depending on feedback
from the community.

of a full-featured, production-quality LDAP server,
which will leverage the underlying LDAP and BER functionality
in Net::LDAP.
* Please tell us if you would be interested in seeing a public
release of the LDAP server.
* Grateful acknowledgement to Austin Ziegler, who reviewed
this code and provided the release framework, including
