As you wish, but there are several significant bugs
(with printing for one) that have been fixed for the
3.2.1 release.

You have to start thinking of Samba as the Linux kernel,
we are now on a 6-monthly upgrade cycle, with minor bugfixes
inbetween every 2 months or so.

Remember, most people didn't test 3.2.0 at all before it
was released, so I'm actually quite pleased with the
quality of the release (congratulations to Karolin for
that !), but there are several issues that need a bugfix.
