    (Samba goes for the gold!)

    This is the latest stable release of Samba. This is the version
    that production Samba servers should be running for all
    current bug-fixes. There have been several issues fixes since
    the 3.0.4/5 release and new features have been added as well.
    See the "Changes" section of the release notes for details
    on exact updates.

    Common bugs fixed in 3.0.6 include:

    ~ o Schannel failure in winbindd.
    ~ o Numerous memory leaks.
    ~ o Incompatibilities between the 'write list' and 'force user'
    ~ smb.conf options.
    ~ o Premature optimization of the open_directory() internal
    ~ function that broke tools such as the ArcServe backup
    ~ agent, Macromedia HomeSite, and Robocopy.
    ~ o Corrupt workgroup names in nmbd's browse.dat.
    ~ o Sharing violation errors commonly seen when opening
    ~ when serving Microsoft Office documents from a Samba
    ~ file share.
    ~ o Browsing problems caused by an apostrophe (') in the
    ~ computer's description field.
    ~ o Problems creating special file types from UNIX CIFS
    ~ clients and enabling 'unix extensions'.
    ~ o Fix stalls in smbd caused by inaccessible LDAP servers.
    ~ o Fix issues in the password lockout feature.

    New features introduced in this release include:

    ~ o Support symlinks created by CIFS clients which
    ~ can be followed on the server.
    ~ o Using a cups server other than localhost.
    ~ o Maintaining the service principal entry in the system
    ~ keytab for integration with other kerberized services.
    ~ Please refer to the 'use kerberos keytab' entry in
    ~ smb.conf(5). When using the heimdal kerberos libraries,
    ~ you must also specify the following in /etc/krb5.conf:
    ~ [libdefaults]
    ~ default_keytab_name = FILE:/etc/krb5.keytab
    ~ o Support for maintaining individual printer names
    ~ stored separately from the printer's sharename.
    ~ o Support for maintaining user password history.
    ~ o Support for honoring the logon times for user in a
    ~ Samba domain.


    smb.conf changes
    - ----------------

    ~ Parameter Name Action
    ~ -------------- ------
    ~ cups server New
    ~ defer sharing violations New
    ~ force unknown acl user New
    ~ ldap timeout New
    ~ printcap cache time New
    ~ use kerberos keytab New


    - --------------------------------------------
    unix extensions = yes (default) and symlinks
    - --------------------------------------------

    Beginning with Samba 3.0.6pre1 (formerly known as 3.0.5pre1), clients
    supporting the UNIX extensions to the CIFS protocol can create symlinks to
    absolute paths which will be **followed** by the server. This
    functionality has been requested in order to correctly support certain
    applications when the user's home directory is mounted using some type of
    CIFS client (e.g. the cifsvfs in the Linux 2.6 kernel).

    If this behavior is not acceptable for your production environment you can
    set 'wide links = no' in the specific share declaration in the server's
    smb.conf. Be aware that disabling wide link support out of a share in
    Samba may impact the server's performance due to the fact that smbd will
    now have to check each path additional times before traversing it.

    - ------------------------
    Password History Support
    - ------------------------

    The new password history feature allows smbd to check the new password in
    password change requests against a list of the user's previous passwords.
    The number of previous passwords to save can be set using pdbedit (4 in
    this example):

    ~ root# pdbedit -P "password history" -C 4

    When using the ldapsam passdb backend, it is vital to secure the following
    attributes from access by non-administrative users:

    ~ * sambaNTPassword
    ~ * sambaLMPassword
    ~ * sambaPasswordHistory

    You should refer to your directory server's documentation on how to
    implement this restriction.
