> Release Announcements
> This is the third release candidate of the Samba 3.0.25 code base
> and is provided for testing only. An RC release means that we are
> close to the final release but the code may still have a few
> remaining minor bugs. This release is *not* intended for production
> servers. There has been a substantial amount of development since
> the 3.0.23/3.0.24 series of stable releases. We would like to ask the
> Samba community for help in testing these changes as we work towards
> the next significant production upgrade Samba 3.0 release.
> Major features included in the 3.0.25 code base include:
> o Significant improvements in the winbind off-line logon support.
> o Support for secure DDNS updates as part of the 'net ads join'
> o Rewritten IdMap interface which allows for TTL based caching and
> per domain backends.
> o New plug-in interface for the "winbind nss info" parameter.
> o New file change notify subsystem which is able to make use of
> inotify on Linux.
> o Support for passing Windows security descriptors to a VFS
> plug-in allowing for multiple Unix ACL implements to running side
> by side on the Same server.
> o Improved compatibility with Windows Vista clients including
> improved read performance with Linux servers.
> o Man pages for IdMap and VFS plug-ins.
> Off-line Logons and AD Site Support
> Winbind's capability to support offline logons has been greatly
> improved with the 3.0.25 release including support for locating
> domain controllers asynchronously using Active Directory Site
> New IdMap Interface for Winbindd
> The 3.0.25 release of Samba includes a rewritten IdMap interface
> for winbindd which replaces the "idmap backend" parameter. Please
> refer to the "idmap domains" description in the smb.conf(5) man
> page for more details.
> Dynamic DNS Updates
> The "net ads join" command is now able to register the host's DNS A
> records with Windows 2000 SP4 and 2003 DNS servers. This
> feature must be enabled at compile time using the --with-dnsupdate
> when running the ./configure script. There is also a related "net ads
> dns" command for refreshing a host's records which could be launched
> from a dhcp client script when a new IP address is obtained.
> Support for Additional ACL Modules
> Samba's POSIX ACL support has been moved inside of the VFS layer
> which means it is now possible to support multiple ACL implementations
> on the same server including NFSv4 and GPFS ACLs.
> VFS ReadAhead Plugin
> Windows Vista introduces pipe-lined read support for improved
> performance when transferring files. The new vfs_readahead plugin
> allows Linux file servers to utilize additional Kernel buffers
> for caching files in order to avoid Disk I/O wait time when serving
> Vista clients. If you experience poor read performance between
> Linux servers and Vista clients, please test the vfs_readahead
> module by adding the following lines to the share definition
> in smb.conf:
> vfs objects = readahead
> Note that this plugin will result in additional RAM requirements
> due to the increased amount of kernel buffer caches used by smbd.
> Please refer to vfs_readahead(8) for more information.
> Windows Vista, Office 2007, and Offline Files
> Research surrounding offline files, Windows Vista, and Microsoft
> Office 2007 has revealed a incompatibility between these
> applications and the "map acl inherit = no" setting in smb.conf.
> Users requiring support client side caching (csc) and offline
> files are encouraged to enable the "map acl inherit" for any
> affected share definitions in the server's configuration.
> Future versions of Samba will enable this setting by default.
> Please refer to the smb.conf(5) man page for more details on
> "map acl inherit".
