I'm new to torque and apologize if this question has already been asked
multiple times before - though I looked through the archives and
couldn't find a definite answer. 
Since what version there is full support for LDAP in torque ? What
version is stable enough to install ? I have v. 1.2.0p5 that comes with
OSCAR right now and pbs_mom does not recognize LDAP user accounts.
I have downloaded 2.1.5 but after reading the warning below I'm not sure
I want to upgrade to an unstable version.
Browsing through the archives it seems that LDAP support was introduced
sometime around October 2005 - is this correct ? According to the README
that comes with 1.2.0 that version was released in July 2005 - that is
probably why it doesn't see LDAP.

Thank you,
