This is the second release candidate snapshot of the Samba
3.0.6 code base (the first rc was labeled as 3.0.5rc1) and
should be considered 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 3.0.4/5 release
that we feel are important to make available to the Samba
community for wider testings.

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.6rc1 include:

~  o Fix stalls in smbd caused by inaccessible LDAP servers.
~  o Remove various memory leaks.
~  o Fix issues in the password lockout feature.
~  o Merge security fixes for CAN-2004-0600, CAN-2004-0686
~    from 3.0.5.

New features introduced in this release include:

~  o Support for maintaining user password history
~    in tdbsam (the ldapsam support will be fixed prior
~    to the final 3.0.6 release).
