This is a release candidate snapshot of the Samba 3.0.5 code base and
should be considered for testing only. A release candidate (RC) means
that we are close to the final, stable release and in provided for Quality
Assurance (QA) purposes. This release is *not* intended for production
servers. Use at your own risk.
There have been several bug fixes since the 3.0.4 release that we feel are
important to make available to the Samba community for wider testings.
Common bugs fixed in 3.0.5rc1 include:
o Corrupt workgroup names in nmbd's browse.dat.
o Sharing violation errors commonly seen when opening
when serving Microsoft Office documents from a Samba
o Browsing problems caused by an apostrophe (') in the
computer's description field.
o Problems creating special file types from UNIX CIFS
clients and enabling 'unix extensions'.
New features introduced in this release include:
o Using a cups server other than localhost.
o Maintaining the service principal entry in the system
keytab for integration with other kerberized services.
Please refer to the 'use kerberos keytab' entry in
smb.conf(5). When using the heimdal kerberos libraries,
you must also specify the following in /etc/krb5.conf:
default_keytab_name = FILE:/etc/krb5.keytab
o Support for maintaining individual printer names
stored separately from the printer's sharename.
