Google has released a couple of enhancements to Google Apps Directory Sync, which is a tool that helps businesses sync the user and directory info in their LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) systems with Google Apps.

Google Apps Directory Sync now helps sync employee contact info as well as non-employee info listed in the central LDAP directory. This means customers, partners, vendors, etc. can easily be looked up.

"These changes complement the improvements to contacts in Google Apps that we announced a few weeks ago," says Google Apps Team Product Manager Navneet Goel.

"This release also expands the list of contact fields that can be synchronized between an LDAP system and Google Apps," adds Goel. "Rich user profile information like multiple phone numbers, addresses and job titles are now supported, making full profiles easily accessible by employees."

More details about Google Apps Directory Sync can be found here. Key benefits are explained, and links to downloads for XP/Vista, Solaris, and Linux are also available.

On another Google Apps-related note, Google uploaded a video this week to the Google Code YouTube Channel, which explains the process of installing Google App Engine apps into Google Apps.
