1 Eldap Release Notes

This document describes the changes made to the Eldap application.

  • Added a new function eldap:info/1 that returns the socket and the transport protocol for the eldap connection.

    Own Id: OTP-18480

  • Fix eldap extensibleMatch dnAttributes option.

    According to the ldap ASN1 the dnAttributes should be a bool, instead it was generated as a string.

  • Implemented paged searches according to https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2696.txt

    Own Id: OTP-17924 Aux Id: PR-5538

  • Add ability to specify size limit on ldap requests

  • Fix dialyzer warnings in eldap when not matching the return value of ssl:close/1.

    Own Id: OTP-15775

  • Back port of bug fix ERL-893 from OTP-22 and document enhancements that will solve dialyzer warnings for users of the ssl application.

    This change also affects public_key, eldap (and inet doc).

  • Improved documentation.

    Own Id: OTP-15190

    Own Id: OTP-14475 Aux Id: ERL-409, PR-1493

  • A race condition at close could cause the eldap client to exit with a badarg message as cause.

    Own Id: OTP-15342 Aux Id: ERIERL-242

  • If the underlying tcp connection is closed and an LDAP operation returned tcp_error, the client applications tend to close the ldap handle with eldap:close. This will cause a {nocatch, {gen_tcp_error, ...}} exception.

    Such errors are now ignored during close, because the socket will be closed anyway.

    Own Id: OTP-13590 Aux Id: PR-1048

  • Modernize test suites

    Own Id: OTP-13566

  • ELDAP did not send an 'unBind' request before closing the connection.

    A new test utility for testing appup files is added to test_server. This is now used by most applications in OTP.

    (Thanks to Tobias Schlager)

    Own Id: OTP-11744
