Hello samba developers, i have a question about the release date of samba. I
really need this information, also because i managed a complex (IMHO) mixed
environment Windows/NT and AS/U ( in future SAMBA ). 

My environment is as following:

I have a NT multimaster domain environment, where the AS/U PDCs (about an
hundred machines with proprietary unix) are trusted domain and the trusting
domain are Windows NT 4.0 ( ... migrating to Windows/2000 in the short run

I need at least the following features in order to use SAMBA:

1) PDC support 
2) Trust support
3) global group support
4) Password policy support (expiration, password length and so on)
On September I have to migrate all  machines with  AS/U (PDC/BDC) to Linux
machines using SAMBA.

Based on Gerald Carter indication (in the post that follow) and my
requirements, what's the best between SAMBA 3.0 or SAMBA-TNG, in terms of
stability and feature support?

Thanks in advance
