Release Announcements

The Samba Team is proud to announcement the availability of
the latest stable production release, 3.0.14, and the
newest testing preview release, 3.0.15pre1.

Samba 3.0.14 is the latest stable release of Samba. This is the
version that production Samba servers should be running for all
current bug-fixes.  Please read the following important changes
in this release.

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.14 include:

~  o Compatibility issues between Winbind and Windows 2003 SP1
~    domain controllers (*2k3sp1*).
~  o MS-DFS errors with Windows XP SP2 clients.
~  o High CPU loads caused by infinite loops in the FindNext()
~    server code.

Samba 3.0.15pre1 is a preview release of the Samba 3.0.15
code base and is provided for testing only.  This release
is *not* intended for production servers.  However, there
have been several bug fixes and new features added since
3.0.14 that we feel are important to make available to
the Samba community for wider testing.  There are still
more changes planned before the final 3.0.15 release.

Additional features introduced in Samba 3.0.15pre1 include:

~  o Support for several new Win32 rpc pipes.
~  o Improved support for OS/2 clients.
~  o New 'net rpc service' tool for managing Win32 services.
~  o Capability to set the owner on new files and directory
~    based on the parent's ownership.
