Release Announcements
---------------------

This is the latest stable release of the Samba 4.7 release series.

Major enhancements include:

o  BUG 13228: This is a major issue in Samba's ActiveDirectory domain
   controller code. It might happen that AD objects have missing or broken
   linked attributes. This could lead to broken group memberships e.g.
   All Samba AD domain controllers set up with Samba 4.6 or lower and then
   upgraded to 4.7 are affected. The corrupt database can be fixed with
   'samba-tool dbcheck --cross-ncs --fix'.
