Release Announcements
This is the second release candidate of the 3.0.20 code base
and is provided for testing purposes only.  While close to
the final stable release this snapshot is *not* intended for
production servers.  If all goes well, this could become the
final 3.0.20 release.

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.20rc2 include:

  o Crash bugs in the client spoolss code.
  o Authentication failures caused by unsupported mechanisms.
  o Failures from common MS management tools such as User
    Manager, Print Migrator, and Server Manager.

What happened to 3.0.15 - 3.0.19?

After some discussion it was deemed that the amount of changes
going into the next Samba 3.0 release needed something to catch
people's attention.  Skipping several releases was chosen as
the best solution with the least overhead.  There will be no
3.0.15 - 3.0.19 ever released.  The next production release
following 3.0.20 should be 3.0.21.

The original announcement about the version number change can
be found in the samba mailing list archives:
