Re: new versions

I am not a openldap developer but i am a lazy FL / oss developer. So i
think your question is general. There are so many project that don't
change the basic function but are releasing new version. Why ? Well, a
possibility is introducing a new build sistem, changing the library
api for a better factoring, fixing some bug and , why not, better
integration, portability issue . And sometime new feature, dropping
past mistake in a incompatible way and so on.  for me this is a
sufficient reason for doing release.

But it just my not so naive i think opinion .

Best regards and sorry for the top posting.
