Heads up everyone,

After a long wait (4 months since 2.2.5 and numerous bug fixes
later), the final planned 2.2 release is here.  With this release
Samba 2.2 is now officially in maintenance mode only.  The only
fixes that will be accepted to the SAMBA_2_2 cvs branch are those
which fix critical bugs in basic functionality.  It's time to move
on to Samba 3.0.

Please refer to the complete release notes here


This is the latest stable release of Samba and is the
version that all production Samba servers should be running
for all current bug-fixes.

The source code can be downloaded from :


in the file samba-2.2.6.tar.gz or samba-2.2.6.tar.bz2.
Both archives have been signed as well using the Samba Distribution
Key (samba-pubkey.asc is available in the same download directory
as the source tarballs)

Binary packages will be released shortly for major platforms and
can be found at


As always, all bugs are our responsibility.
