This is the second preview release of the Samba 3.0.3 code base
and is provided for testing only.  This release is *not* intended
for production servers.  Use at your own risk.

There have been several bug fixes since the 3.0.2a release that
we feel are important to make available to the Samba community
for wider testings.  See the "Changes" section for details on
exact updates.

Common bugs fixed in this preview release include:

~  o Substitution errors for %[UuGg] in smb.conf.
~  o winbindd crashes when using ADS security mode.
~  o SMB signing errors.

New features introduced in this preview release include:

~  o Experimental support for storing DOS attribute on files
~    and folders in Extended Attributes.

The source code can be downloaded from:


The uncompressed tarball and patch file have been signed

A simplified version of the CVS log of updates since 3.0.3pre1
can be found in the the download directory under the name
ChangeLog-3.0.3pre1-3.0.3pre2.  The release notes are also available

As always, all bugs are our responsibility.
