LINQ To LDAP: Closing in on 2.0

It's been a while since I've posted. I moved across town, took a vacation, and have just been generally busy. But I'm back and with a few updates about 2.0.

Since the last time I posted, I've made a few API changes and added quite a bit more mapping support. One thing I want to talk about is some tweaks to paging. I've covered ToPage and PageAll in a previous post. PageAll, however, is being deprecated in version 2.0. In it's place you can do this:
//will page all results when enumerated based on the server max page size from LdapConfiguration

//will create a page request for 10 results and stop there

//will page all the results in groups of 50

//will create a page request for 2 entries at a time up to a maximum of 10 results

In cases when the take size is smaller than the page size, take size will be used.

This is part of the trunk, but is not in the 2.0 beta 2 release. I've updated most of the documentation so you can see a lot of the new stuff over at the codeplex page. I'll also be adding this project to Nuget soon.
