The Luma project team is pleased to announce the availabilty of Luma 1.3. As a
highlight, this release features a new usermanagement plugin which enables
easy handling of user accounts.
A lot of effort went into improving the usability of some common interface
elements. The handling of the server configuration dialog was simplified and
should be more intuitive for the user.
The widget for displaying LDAP entries is completely redone. Handling with
binary data, such as images and certificates, is improved and it is possible
to add attributes which are not supported by current objectclasses.
Luma supports the creation of LANMAN and NT passwords which are needed for
users working with Samba. To enable this, the python smbpasswd module has to
be installed, which can be found at http://barryp.org/software/py-smbpasswd/
There haven been a number of bugfixes and a complete list is at
