Hi there,

AFIK, win2008 will go EOL the 14th january of 2020 and i would like to 
ask you some questions about samba4 future.

- As today we are able to join 2012 servers into a samba >4.6 domain, is 
it possible to join 2016 servers (i guess no, I never tried). If not 
will it be possible in samba's next releases (is it allready planned?)
- I'm not an AD expert but in the same way, will samba4 (or samba5 !) be 
able to emulate win2k12 DCs or directly win2016 DCs one day (not in 10 
years i hope !)
