v1.2.2 - 2014-09-22

v1.2.1 - 2014-08-24

  • More verbose log messages for authentication failures.

v1.2 - 2014-04-10

  • django-auth-ldap now provides experimental Python 3 support. Python 2.5 was dropped.

    To sum up, django-auth-ldap works with Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4.

    Since python-ldap isn’t making progress toward Python 3, if you’re using Python 3, you need to install a fork:

    $ pip install git+https://github.com/rbarrois/python-ldap.git@py3
    

    Thanks to Aymeric Augustin for making this happen.

v1.1.8 - 2014-02-01

  • Fix #43: Update LDAPSearchUnion to work for group searches in addition to user searches.
  • Tox no longer supports Python 2.5, so our tests now run on 2.6 and 2.7 only.

v1.1.7 - 2013-11-19

v1.1.5 - 2013-10-25

  • Fix #41: Support POSIX group permissions with no gidNumber attribute.
  • Support multiple group DNs for *_FLAGS_BY_GROUP.

v1.1.4 - 2013-03-09

  • Add support for Django 1.5’s custom user models.

v1.1.3 - 2013-01-05

  • Fix #33: Reject empty passwords by default.

    Unless AUTH_LDAP_PERMIT_EMPTY_PASSWORD is set to True, LDAPBackend.authenticate() will immediately return None if the password is empty. This is technically backwards-incompatible, but it’s a more secure default for those LDAP servers that are configured such that binds without passwords always succeed.

  • Fix #39: Add support for pickling LDAP-authenticated users.
