I. Database structure needs to be extended if you already use
   OTRS 2.2.1

To increase the performance for escalations we needed to add
new tables to the database. We do everything to avoid altering
the DB structure in patch releases, but in this there was no
way around it.

If you perform a fresh installation or upgrade from OTRS 2.1
to 2.2.2 here is nothing special do. Just follow the instructions
as descibed in the documentation for installation or upgrade.

If you are upgrading from 2.2.x to 2.2.2 you need to run the
DBUpdate-to-2.2.2.sql script (from CVS) to add the
new tabled to your database.

II. Changed configuration options for LDAP user mapping

With the 2.2 release, we cleaned up the LDAP configuration to
increase consistency. However we missed to provide a fallback to
the old scheme. This fallback is in place now.

We strongly encourage you to adopt the new scheme.

The old style (up to 2.1) configuration:

$Self->{UserSyncLDAPMap} = {
        # DB -> LDAP
        Firstname => 'givenName',
        Lastname => 'sn',
        Email => 'mail',

Should be changed to:

$Self->{UserSyncLDAPMap} = {
        # DB -> LDAP
        UserFirstname => 'givenName',
        UserLastname => 'sn',
        UserEmail => 'mail',
