in "Using Samba" by G. Carter, J  Ts and R. Eckstein, 3rd edition, on 
chapter 5, page 113, I ses that the security = share option is 
"deprecated". It is said that "there is a high chance that ... will be 
removed from Samba at some future time".

I find that security = share is extremely useful for many small non 
critical networks.
Is it still the case that this option is considered "deprecated" ? and 
if so what is supposed to replace it and to give the same functionality ?
