LDAPBackend.authenticate()signature to match Django’s documentation.
Fixed group membership queries with DNs containing non-ascii characters on Python 2.7.
AUTH_LDAP_CACHE_TIMEOUTnow replaces deprecated AUTH_LDAP_CACHE_GROUPS and AUTH_LDAP_GROUP_CACHE_TIMEOUT. In addition to caching groups, it also controls caching of distinguished names (which were previously cached by default). A compatibility shim is provided so the deprecated settings will continue to work.
1.5.0 - 2018-04-18¶
django-auth-ldap is now hosted at https://github.com/django-auth-ldap/django-auth-ldap.
Removed NISGroupType class. It searched by attribute nisNetgroupTriple, which has no defined EQAULITY rule.
The python-ldap library is now initialized with
bytes_mode=False, requiring all LDAP values to be handled as Unicode text (
strin Python 3 and
unicodein Python 2), not bytes. For additional information, see the python-ldap documentation on bytes mode.
Removed deprecated function

1.3.0 - 2017-11-20¶

Delay saving new users as long as possible. This will allow
AUTH_LDAP_USER_ATTR_MAPto populate required fields before creating a new Django user.
get_or_build_user()to avoid confusion. The old name may still be overridden for now.
Support querying by a field other than the username field with
authenticate_ldap_user()to provide pre- and post-authentication hooks.
Add support for Django 2.0.
1.2.16 - 2017-09-30¶
Better cache key sanitizing.
Improved handling of LDAPError. A case existed where the error would not get caught while loading group permissions.
1.2.15 - 2017-08-17¶
Improved documentation for finding the official repository and contributing.
1.2.14 - 2017-07-24¶

Some more descriptive object representations.
Improved tox.ini organization.

1.2.1 - 2014-08-24¶
More verbose log messages for authentication failures.
1.2.0 - 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.
1.1.8 - 2014-02-01¶
LDAPSearchUnionto 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.

1.1.3 - 2013-01-05¶
Reject empty passwords by default.
AUTH_LDAP_PERMIT_EMPTY_PASSWORDis 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.
Add support for pickling LDAP-authenticated users.
