The changes over the previous 5.0.0 release include:
We added a new LDAP connection logger API that can be used to keep a record of processing performed by the LDAP SDK, including successful and failed connection attempts, operation requests and responses (including non-final responses like search result entries, search result references, and intermediate responses), and disconnects. The LDAP SDK includes a connection logger instance that formats messages as JSON objects, but it’s an extensible API, so you’re free to create your own implementation using whatever format you want.
We have updated the LDAP command-line tool framework to make it possible to specify the address of the target directory server(s) using either --host or --address as an alternative to the existing --hostname argument.
We fixed an issue that prevented the collect-support-data tool from running properly in local mode when using a secure connection (either SSL or StartTLS). This functionality only applies to an upcoming release of the Ping Identity Directory Server, so existing installations should not have been affected, and new installations will have the fix.
We made minor updates to the usage output for several command-line tools to improve wording and fix typos. We also fixed typos in other messages used throughout the LDAP SDK.
