 support for the Active Directory logon protocols used by Windows 2000
 and above.
-Samba 4.0.0 rc1 is not a final Samba release, however we are now making
-good progress towards a Samba 4.0 release.
 This release contains the best of all of Samba's
 technology parts, both a file server (that you can reasonably expect
 to upgrade existing Samba 3.x releases to) and the AD domain
 controller work previously known as 'samba4'.
-Samba 4.0 is subjected to an awesome battery of tests on an automated
-basis, we have found Samba 4.0 to be very stable in its behaviour.
-However, as with all our pre-releases we still recommend against
-upgrading production servers from Samba 3.x release to Samba 4.0.0rc1
-at this stage.
 If you are upgrading, or looking to develop, test or deploy Samba 4.0
 releases candidates, you should backup all configuration and data.

-Some major user-visible changes include:
-- The smbd file server now offers SMB3 as the maximum protocol
-  by default. Samba can negotiate version 3 of the SMB protocol
-  and supports the required features, including all required
-  features of SMB 2.1 and SMB 2.0. Note that this does not imply
-  that Samba implements all features of SMB3 since many of them
-  are optional capabilities. Examples of features that Samba does
-  not implement yet are leases (SMB 2.1) and multi-channel (SMB 3).
-  Samba now offers an initial support for SMB2 durable file handles.
-  These are enabled by default and can be turned off on a per share
-  basis by setting "durable handles = no" on the share configuration.
-  Note that in order to prevent conflicts with other applications
-  accessing the same files, durable handles are only granted on
-  shares that are configured for CIFS/SMB2-only access, i.e. more
-  explicitly shares that are configured for minimal interoperability
-  with these settings:
-    kernel oplocks = no
-    kernel share modes = no
-    posix locking = no
-  The option "kernel share modes" has been introduced to be able
-  to turn the translation of SMB share modes into kernel flocks
-  off.
-- The 'provision' script was merged into 'samba-tool'
-  as 'samba-tool domain provision' the arguments are still
-  the same.
-- The 'updateprovision' script was renamed to 'samba_upgradeprovision'.
-- We changed the default dns implementation to the internal dns server
-  (SAMBA_INTERNAL). BIND9_FLATFILE and BIND9_DLZ are still available,
-  but you'll have to add '-dns' to the 'server services' option
-  to disable the internal dns server.
-  The default for 'allow dns updates' has changed to 'secure only'.
