updates to my github repository
Message ID:

it's been a while, ...

Anyway, I updated my GitHub Repository .

Updated branch:
  changes & fixes that will go into the next version of perl-ldap

New branches (on top of next) - further ideas:
   parse & return control: stanza in LDIF files
   Pro: fuller support of LDIF specification   Con: may break existing code calling Net::LDIF-
>read_entry in list mode

*   (currently on top of LDIF, but 
   allow using LDAP-URL in LDIF files   e.g.
    dn: cn=All Staff,ou=Groups,o=ACME
    objectclass: groupOfNames
    cn: All Staff
    member:< ldap://localhost/o=ACME?1.1?sub?(objectclass=person)
   Pro: LDIF-based mass changes with only a few lines of LDIF
   Con: slows down entire Net::LDAP::LDIF's overall read path

   better ActiveDirectory support
   Pro: see above
   Con: extends Net::LDAP::RootDSE unconditionally            (i.e. not only for AD, but also 
for other Directory servers)

   accept parameter url in search() to  get the search params from
   Pro: one parameter instead of 4
   Con: search() gets more complex
Those additional branches contain further ideas, which may be partially unpolished.
Please check them give them a shake and report bugs, improvements, ...
and of course also, what you want to see in future versions of perl-ldap.
