NetTools V1.28.0

NetTools V1.28.1 - minor fix in LDAP Browser

General
NetTools no longer uses the ADSI APIs, all queries against the AD now only use the LDAP API, this provides a small performance increase but more importantly it provides consistency across all features.
The toolbar is now always displayed at the top of NetTools, and includes buttons for navigation, Connection Profiles, Resolver and Help and quick search by default, Pin items are displayed to the right of these buttons.

Connection Profiles  *** New ***
With previous versions of NetTools, it would use the current user's credentials and domain join information of the workstation running NetTools to authenticate and select the directory that would be interrogated and there were only a few features that supported the use of different credentials via the Use LDAP Search Credentials option.  This version introduces a new feature called Connection Profiles, which adds the extra capability to define the server connection and credentials that will be used by the tests and features and provides a common method to define and access the AD across all tests.  See Connection Profiles.

Circular References  *** New ***
A new feature to test if there are any infinite loops in your group memberships. See Circular References

Resolver *** New ***
A quick way to search for a single or multiple items, just copy and paste a a single or list of items that you want to find, and it will search the AD for the items and display if they exist in the directory or not.  The copy and pasted list can be displayname, samaccountname, DN, SID, UPN, or email address.  See Resolver
