Major changes

  • Better domain performance:

    • If LDAP remains unresponsive for some time, the connection will be recovered with user privileges.
    • Waiting for the LDAP server when unlocking a domain user's session.
    • Applications are now running faster thanks to LDAP caching.
    • Better response time for LDAP if the latter is unavailable.

    • There was a bug that sometimes occured when first booting the system; it is no more.
