Samba 2.2 is end-of-life very shortly.  This means not even security
updates, and it has been out of maintenance for functionality updates
for a long time.

The general impression I get about Samba 3.0 is that it has a lot of
users, not that most users have problems.  It has been one of our most
successful releases in that respect.  Samba 3.1, which will become Samba
3.2 will not be radically different in that respect, just a continuing
evolution from this point.
