So I upgraded my test system to 3.4.4 and switched to the new LDAP provider:

idp.ldaptive.provider = org.ldaptive.provider.unboundid.UnboundIDProvider

Upon starting, I got a failure:

Caused by: com.unboundid.ldap.sdk.LDAPException: An error occurred while attempting to resolve address 'ldap.c':  UnknownHostException(, ldapSDKVersion=4.0.9, revision=29290
        at com.unboundid.ldap.sdk.LDAPConnection.connect(
Caused by:

Historically I have always configured idp.attribute.resolver.LDAP.ldapURL as "ldap://"; it seems this new provider does not like the trailing / 8-/.

I updated the parameter to "ldap://" and it seems happy now. Easy enough to fix, and don't know that it warrants a mention in the release notes, but just thought I would post about it. Other than that everything seems to working fine.
