OpenLDAP 2.0-Alpha3 Released

OpenLDAP 2.0-alpha3 is now available for download:

This is primarily a developer preview release and is for testing purposes
only.   Inexperienced users should use "release" and/or "stable" versions
available at http://www.openldap.org/software/download/.  It's expected
that all users of this preview release actively read the developer's
mailing list.

This version is NOT database compatible with prior versions. You
must build a test database using your existing ldbmcat(8) (w/ -n option)
to generate an LDIF file.   This LDIF file can be imported into your
test database using either slapadd(8) or ldapadd(1).

This preview release includes:
        Basic LDAPv3 Support
        Updated LDAP C API
        Updated slapd alias/referral support
        Additional slapd (experimental) backends
                BDB2 backend
                LDAP backend
                Perl backend
                TCL backend
        Support for dynamically loadable backends
        Improved configure script
        Experimental NT slapd port
