I've given examples in the WHATSNEW.txt file. It's now checked in to 3-2-test.

I'm not changing it in an incompoatible way (nor do I plan to, as that
would only have been done at a major Samba version number bump), so I
don't think the .so version number needs a bump. The .so works with
existing compiled apps so shouldn't need a version bump. It's ABI
compatible. A version bump should only be required if it's not ABI
