3.0.20pre1 fails to build on SunOS SS10 5.8 Generic_117350-24 sun4u sparc
SUNW,Ultra-2 using Solaris native CC due to a "//" style comment in
source/rpc_parse/parse_svcctl.c line 109.
Of course, that may already be fixed by now....
Thanks, Rich B

> Release Announcements
> This is a preview release of the Samba 3.0.20 code base and
> is provided for testing only. This release is *not* intended
> for production servers. There has been a substantial amount
> of development since the 3.0.14a stable release (and since the
> 3.015pre2 release as well). We would like to ask the Samba
> community for help in testing these changes as we work towards
> the next official, production Samba 3.0 release.
> Additional features introduced in Samba 3.0.20pre1 include:
> o New asynchronous winbindd.
> o Support for Microsoft Print Migrator.
> o New Windows NT registry file I/O library.
> o New user right (SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege) added.
> o New "net share migrate" options.
> What happened to 3.0.15 - 3.0.19?
> After some discussion it was deemed that the amount of changes
> going into the next Samba 3.0 release needed something to catch
> people's attention. Skipping several releases was chosen as
> the best solution with the least overhead. There will be no
> 3.0.15 - 3.0.19 ever released. The next production release
> following 3.0.20 should be 3.0.21.
> The original announcement about the version number change can
> be found in the samba mailing list archives:
> Asynchronous Winbind Implementation
> Winbindd has been completely rewritten in this release to support
> an almost completely non-blocking, asynchronous request/reply
> model. This means that winbindd will scale much better in
> large domain environments and on high latency networks. Neither
> the client interface nor the command line tools (i.e. wbinfo) have
> changed in their calling conventions or syntax. However, due to
> internal structure changes, it is required (more so than normal)
> that you install the nss_winbind.so library included in this release.
> Support for Microsoft Print Migrator
> Samba 3.0.20pre1 supports backing up print drivers and queues
> using the Microsoft Print Migrator (printmig.exe) tool. Currently
> only support for restoring drivers onto a Samba server has been
> implemented. The final 3.0.20 release will include for
> restoring the print queues and printer settings as well. This
> will allow organizations to easily migrate or consolidate from a
> Windows print server environment to a Samba print server without
> having to individually reinstall drivers and printers. The current
> restore support also allows administrators to create a master list
> of drivers which can be installed on a new Samba host in a single
