Quoting from the "Little Book of Calm":

This is a release candidate of the Samba 3.0.12 code base and is
provided for testing only.  While close to the final stable release,
this snapshot is *not* intended for production servers.  If all
goes well, this this version (or something very similar) will become
the final 3.0.12 stable release.

Common bugs fixed in 3.0.12rc1 include:

~  o Error messages from shared Excel workbooks residing on Samba
~    file shares.
~  o Missing files in the output of smbclient -c 'dir' when run
~    against Windows file servers.
~  o Inability for Print Administrators to pause/resume/purge print
~    queues.

Additional features introduced in Samba 3.0.12rc1:

~  o Support for the Novell NDS universal password when using the
~    ldapsam passdb backend.
~  o New 'net rpc trustdom {add,del}' functionality to eventually
~    replace 'smbpasswd {-a,-x} -i'.
~  o New libsmbclient functionality.

libsmbclient Binary Compatibility

Please note that a change has been made to the _SMBCCTX structure
in source/include/libsmbclient.h.  This change is not backwards
compatible with applications linked against the libsmbclient.so
library from Samba 3.0.11.  However, it is compatible with all
other Samba 3.0.x releases.  This means that it will be most likely
be necessary to recompile any applications linked against the
3.0.11 version of the library.
