The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) project provides integration with LDAP for authentication, user provisioning, authorization, feeds, and views. It also provides apis and building blocks (query and server configuration storage) for other modules. LDAP is intended to become a replacement for Drupal 5 and 6 LDAP Integration as summarized in #806548: Unnecessary duplication?

8.x-2.x Development Status (updated 10/6/2013)

The goal of this version is straight upgrade, with possible usability, documentation, and test coverage improvements. New functionality is always up for discussion. Help on this is greatly appreciated.

7.x-2.x Development Status (updated 10/6/2013)

7.x-2.0-beta is the more stable of the 2 Drupal 7 branches Working toward a release candidate.

7.x-1.x Development Status (updated 10/6/2013)

7.x-1.x will only have bug fixes on it from here on out when patches are provided. The current dev will likely keep having patches for bugs. It is recommended to stick with whatever version of it you have working currently until 7.x-2.0RCs come out. Also its ideal to uninstall and reconfigure betas; if not at least run the updates.
