Thanks Marc, as far as I can see only the strong LDAP would pertain to my install (it's very simple setup I have, one CentOS DC as a VM, one CentOS box as a file server and one firewall with VPN authentication via LDAP).  Firewall does support TLS for LDAP so I'm going to give it a bash over the weekend.

This depents on your environment. :-)

You should always check the release notes from the versions you plan to skip. Then you can decite if there's something that has a negative impact or requires some work.
