Quick summary:

SMB2 support in 3.6.0 is fully functional (with one ommission),
and can  be enabled by setting:

max protocol = SMB2

in the [global] section of your smb.conf and re-starting
Samba. All features should work over SMB2 except the modification
of user quotas using the Windows quota management tools.

As this is the first release containing what we consider
to be a fully featured SMB2 protocol, we are not enabling
this by default, but encourage users to enable SMB2 and
test it. Once we have enough confirmation from Samba
users and OEM's that SMB2 support is stable in wide user
testing we will enable SMB2 by default in a future Samba

That's the plan :-)
