This is the first release candidate of the Samba 3.0.3 code
base and is provided for testing only.  A release candidate
(RC) means that we are close to the final, stable release and
in provided for Quality Assurance (QA) purposes.  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 RC include:

   o Delays in winbindd startup caused by unnecessary
     connections to trusted domain controllers.
   o Various small memory leaks.
   o Winbindd failing due to expired Kerberos tickets.

New features introduced in this preview release include:

   o Support for local nested groups via winbindd.
   o Specifying options to be passed directly to
     the CUPS libraries.

The source code can be downloaded from:
