Samba 2.2.x is essentially frozen. No further development is planned.

Wondering if anyone knows if it is planned, or if there are
patches for large file support in the client side of samba 2.2.x
series. I have large files on the windows side that I want to
access via smbclient (specifically smbtar), and these fail
spectacularly. You can get the filesize of a large file correctly, but
all the code that talks to the windows side (cli_*) assumes size is
32-bit, and doesn't seem to be using the newest CIFS protocol.
Any advice or suggestions?
PS I am aware the smbfs provides support for large files, but this is
linux specific and I am targetting Solaris.
