MediaWiki Stakeholders have been working on a new LDAP stack to connect MediaWiki with
LDAP based user directories. We have made considerable progress over the last months and
the stack has been tested successfully in various contexts. The new stack is meant to
replace the existing Extension:Ldap_Authentication which is no longer maintained. It
integrates with AuthManager and is built in a modular and extensible way. There is also a
documentation on MediaWiki.org
 for how to use the new stack and how to migrate from
the old extension.
In order to harden the stack against a range of use cases, we appreciate your testing and
feedback. You can also contribute to the code directly, of course.
