The LDAP libraries, clients and runtime from the openldap package are now 
available with the Cygwin distribution:

 * http://www.openldap.org/                    (Homepage)
 * http://www.openldap.org/software/download/  (Download location) 
Although the LDAP server seems to run fine and passes all tests it's not 
bundeled with this packages suite. If somebody wants to take over this 
part please stand up...

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol clients and libraries. The libs can 
for example be used to LDAP enable the upcoming XEmacs package or the already 
distributed pine package.

The LDAP clients (ldapadd/-delete/-modify/-search/-compare/-modrdn) are 
useful to talk to standard LDAP servers not only the OpenLDAP one.



To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Libs"
and then click on the appropriate fields until the above announced
version numbers appear if they are not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.
