Table of Contents

Softerra LDAP Administrator 2013.1 is a major release that offers several new features, improvements and user interface refinements.

Below are the highlights of the major additions and changes in Softerra LDAP Administrator 2013.1 from the previous version.


IPv6 Support

Since Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) becomes more and more popular nowadays, we have added IPv6 support to LDAP Administrator. Now you can use LDAP Administrator both in IPv4 and IPv6 networks simultaneously without any issues.

Displaying Empty Attributes

From now on, following multiple requests from our customers, LDAP Administrator can be configured to display empty attributes in the List View. This will allow you to quickly add an attribute to an LDAP entry.

LDIF Editor Enhancements

At request of many users, we have improved LDIF Editor by adding a number of important features listed below.


LDIF Editor Bookmarks

LDIF Editor Bookmarks In the new version of LDAP Administrator, you can use Bookmarks to mark lines in LDIF Editor, so that you can quickly navigate to a specific location and jump back or forth between locations. The bookmarks are bound to a specific file, so you can use them any time you open this file in LDIF Editor.


Undo/Redo History

From now, LDAP Administrator stores the undo/redo history of LDIF files. It means if you open a file next time in LDIF Editor, you will be able to perform undo/redo operations that were done previously.


Restoring File State

Now, LDAP Administrator maintains the state of outlining as well as scroll and cursor positions of a file opened in LDIF Editor. It means, that next time you open the same file in LDIF Editor, the cursor position, scroll position and outlining will be the same, as they were last time.


Persistent Dialogs

Starting from this version, LDAP Administrator automatically saves/restores the position and sizes of all modeless dialogs, such as Directory Search, Group and Members, Schema Viewer, LDAP-SQL Query, Reports etc, even if they are docked. So, next time you open a dialog, it will be placed at the same position where it was closed last time.

Storable Modeless Dialogs


Command Line Builder for Import/Export

Writing an import or export command line can be a time-consuming operation due to an extensive list of parameters that control the import/export operation. Now LDAP Administrator allows you to construct a command line for the laimex.exe tool using the Import/Export Data Wizard. All you need to do is set all the desired parameters using the wizard and press the Build Command Line button.

Other Improvements

We are always committed to make our application more stable, bug free and responsive. Since the last release we have implemented a lot of enhancements and bugfixes which are not visible at first glance, however they make the use of LDAP Administrator more stable and enjoyable than ever.
