should see the final 3.0.21 release within 2 weeks.

~  o Incompatibilities with newer MS Windows hotfixes and
~    embedded OS platforms
~  o Portability and crash bugs.
~  o Performance issues in winbindd.

New features introduced in Samba 3.0.21 include:

~  o Complete NTLMv2 support by consolidating authentication
~    mechanism used at the CIFS and RPC layers.
~  o The capability to manage Unix services using the Win32
~    Service Control API.

~    Microsoft Event Viewer.
