PloneLDAP should be compatible with 3.0 and later, as described here :

We migrated a 2.5 site that used PloneLDAP, across to Plone 3.1.2, 
currently using PloneLDAP 1.0rc3
We only use PloneLDAP, configured at ZMI level, and don't use 
plone.app.ldap (formerly simplon.plone.ldap)

The same configuration of PloneLDAP worked for us in Plone 3.1.2 as it 
did in Plone 2.5.x. I don't recall having to change anything much.

However, for reasons which I've now forgotten, I believe I did need to 
tear down acl_users and set it up again. Just printed out all the config 
from the 2.5 site and re-added LDAP the multi-plugin.

Are you experiencing compatibility problems with specifically 3.2 
perhaps? What are the symptoms?
