This is an update for the 0.8 series that includes a few fixes and some work on the pynslcd implementation. The 0.8 series remains in development mode and several more changes, enhancements and new features are planned. Users that require a stable release are encouraged to stay with 0.7 until 0.8 stabilises.A summary of the changes since 0.8.5:
pynslcd, the Python implementation of nslcd that is included in nss-pam-ldapd should now be mostly useful for test environments and testing is welcomed. The newly implemented offline cache should be functional but for example disappearing users in LDAP are not reflected in the offline cache yet and LDAP reconnect logic is not yet working.
