I am not a openldap developer but i am a lazy FL / oss developer. So i think your question is general. There are so many project that don't change the basic function but are releasing new version. Why ? Well, a possibility is introducing a new build sistem, changing the library api for a better factoring, fixing some bug and , why not, better integration, portability issue . And sometime new feature, dropping past mistake in a incompatible way and so on. for me this is a sufficient reason for doing release.
But it just my not so naive i think opinion .
Best regards and sorry for the top posting.

i have noticed openldap keeps releasing new versions from time to time. I have not noticed changes in protocol specification. So why does openldap release new versions ? Isn't it mature enough yet ? I am asking cause i am used to djb tools like qmail and djbdns and they don't change since a long time ago.
Please, don't get me wrong. I am no saying one approach is better than another, i am just curious about openldap.
