The Windows Sysinternals team have updated the excellent Active Directory Explorer tool to version 1.3

AD Explorer can be used to navigate the AD database; view object properties and attributes; modify permissions; view an object’s schema properties and create sophisticated searches that can be saved for regular use.

AD Explorer has the ability to save snapshots of an AD database for off-line viewing and comparison and for me the most useful snapshot feature is the ability to mount two snapshots of an Active Directory database and using AD Explorer’s comparison functionality compare the two snapshots to see what objects, attributes and security permissions differ.
