This is a preview release of the Samba 3.0.2 code base and 
is provided for testing only.  This release is *not* intended 
for production servers.  However, there have been several bug 
fixes since 3.0.1 that we feel are important to make available 
to the Samba community for wider testing.

Common bugs fixed in this preview release include:

  o Joining a Samba domain from Pre-SP2 Windows 2000 clients.
  o Logging onto a Samba domain from Windows XP clients.
  o Problems with the %U and %u smb.conf variables in relation
    to Windows 9x/ME clients.
  o Kerberos failures due to an invalid in memory keytab
    detection test.
  o Updates to the ntlm_auth tool.
  o Fixes for various SMB signing errors.

The source code can be downloaded from:

The uncompressed tarball and patch file have been signed
using GnuPG.  The Samba public key is available at

Binary packages are available at

A simplified version of the CVS log of updates since 3.0.1
can be found in the the download directory under the name
ChangeLog-3.0.1-3.0.2pre1.  The release notes are also
available in the same directory.  

As always, all bugs are our responsibility.
