Version: 1.1.8

ATTENTION: If you are running a multisite environment you shouldn't update from 1.1.5 or lower to 1.1.6 or above. Since 1.1.6 the central settings apply for all sites. In the upcoming version 1.2 you can choose between installation wide and site specific settings.

show selected AD attributes (see above) in user profile
tool for testing with detailed debug informations
