The Samba Team is proud to announce the availability of the
third (and possible last) beta release of the Samba 3.0.0 
code base.  While we are significantly closer to the final 
release, you should be reminded that this is a non-production 
release provided for testing only.  If all goes well, we will 
move onto a series of Release Candidate (RC) snapshots next.

There have been significant additions to winbindd's 
functionality in the release as well as changes to Samba's 
SID<->UNIX id mapping features.  Please refer to the 
Release Notes for details.

The source code can be downloaded from :

The uncompressed tarball and patch file have been signed

Binary packages for RedHat, also signed by the Samba GPG key,
have been released and can be found at

Others will be available as they are submitted by volunteers.
