Thanks for the answer.
Does this mean skipping 4.0 and 4.1 and going to 4.2 will give the same 
level of features of 3.6? No regressions?

Also, I see there are two upgrade paths: classic and Active Directory.
Does the above statement wrt trusts hold for both? Or only for classic?

Can I upgrade to 4.2 staying with NT mode and then switch to AD in the 
future? Would the "Samba AD DC HOWTO" still be applicable then?

  bye & Thanks
