In case of this client no. It is long to explain, and therefore, I will not explain it here, but upgrading is'nt always an option.
For your information, between the time OpenLDAP releases a version and the time the projects might actualy use it, is about 6-7 month. That's because of the whole compilation/testing/validation/packaging/releasing process that the client is using. It has been so for many year now.
