Revision history for Perl extension DBD::Ldap. 0.01 Fri Jun 06 13:00:55 2000 - original version; created by h2xs 1.18 0.02 Thu Jun 07 - Changed name from "DBD::Ldap" to "DBD::LDAP". 0.03 Tue Jun 12 - Fixed bug that produced error if last attribute was null for any of the records returned by a search. Removed lots of commented-out code. - Changed datatype from "VARCHAR" (12) to "LONG" (-1). - 1st release to CPAN! 0.04 Fri Aug 10 - Fixed bug involving autocommit on statements containing "select" in data. Caught by Simon Elliott, Thanks! 0.05 Mon Sep 17 - Fixed "ldap_..." attributes to work, ie. "ldap_firstonly" did not work. Also made "ldap_firstonly" to allow values > 1 to limit number of returned valued to that number. Previously, =1 ment 1 value, =0 ment all values. 0.06 Fri Jun 27 - Fixed Makefile.PL bug in Perl 5.8+ where make would fail with something like "Can't use string ("*.xsi") as a HASH ref...". Thanks to everyone who reported this. 0.07 Sun Mar 14 2004 - Add compatability with Class::DBI and Netscape LDAP Server (added patches by jmorano per bug#12269 and 12270 in rt.cpan.org). NOTE: Type VARCHAR is now 12 instead of -1. 0.08 Wed Jul 19 2006 - Stop appending base DN (2nd field in the table definition line) to the base insert attributes (5th field in the table definition line) per request / patch by R.K. Owen. The attribute "ldap_appendbase2ins" was added for backward compatablility. If set to 1, then pre-0.08 behaviour is used. I couldn't find a case where this was ever actually used, but if anyone needs it, then set this attribute in the "connect" call. Default is zero (new behavior - no append). 0.09 Tue Oct 24 2006 - Cause execute() to return "0E0" instead of raising a -402 error for "No matching Records" (which is not an error). This fix was made in DBD::Sprite many moons ago, but never made it here. Thanks to R. K. Owen for catching this. 0.10 Wed Sep 9 2009 - Fix bug that caused queries with 3 or more operands in a where clause without parenthesis to generate invalid filters, ie: "where a and b and c". Also added "o" option to numerous regices that do not contain variables to optimize for speed. 0.21 Thu Nov 5 2009 - Fix bug that prevented query field data from containing escaped single quotes. Note: Perl generally requires a double-backslash to preceed the quote in order to pas the escape on to LDAP. - Fix "warning" issue where "AutoCommit" was reported as not being implemented in the driver, particularly when "-w" (Perl warnings turned on). - Improved general error-message reporting, particulary by connect(), prepare(), and execute() functions. - Changed the call to Net::LDAP's get() function to get_value() per patch by Gab. Korsani. Thanks Gab, and also for providing me with a working LDAP server to test against! - Added DBI's "primary_key_info" query. - Fixed unimplemented, but valid SQL "create table", "alter table", and "drop table" calls to return zero instead of error. - Optimized many regices. - Fixed some minor issues with AutoCommit - when AutoCommit is OFF, and one exits without calling commit(), anything done since the previous commit() call should now be rolled back. - TYPE and PRECISION, etc. data are now properly returned (as VARCHAR(255)) for all fields. 0.22 - POD Documentation changes (patch provided by Michael R. Davis) to polish up the indentation, etc. Thanks, Michael. 0.23 Fri Feb 1 2019 - Add DBI to prerequisites (adresses bug#128038) & clean up Makefile.PL. 0.24 Sat Feb 2 2019 - Remove CONFIGURE section, add CONFIGURE_REQUIRES in Makefile.PL to further address bug#128038. - Make dbd_postamble to actually work - tweak test.pl (remove unneeded "require DBI" stmt). - update META.yml 1.00 Mon Feb 4 2019 - Fix $dbh->connect() method to not apply login-rule parameter if user-name is a full DN but still append <ROOT> if it's a relative (single-pair) DN. This addresses bug#127341. - Make sure blank user-name field is converted to empty in $dbh->connect(). - Tweak docs and add examples to better explain user-name and login-rule parameters and the $dbh->connect() method to also address bug#127341. - Take the plunge and rename this to v1.00 just for marketing purposes!
