Samba 3 est sorti

Major new features:
- -------------------

1) Active Directory support. Samba 3.0 is now able to
join a ADS realm as a member server and authenticate
users using LDAP/Kerberos.

2) Unicode support. Samba will now negotiate UNICODE on the wire
and internally there is now a much better infrastructure for
multi-byte and UNICODE character sets.

3) New authentication system. The internal authentication system
has been almost completely rewritten. Most of the changes are
internal, but the new auth system is also very configurable.

4) New default filename mangling system.

5) A new net command has been added. It is somewhat similar to
the net command in windows. Eventually we plan to replace
numerous other utilities (such as smbpasswd) with subcommands
in net.

6) Samba now negotiates NT-style status32 codes on the wire. This
improves error handling a lot.

7) Better Windows 2000/XP/2003 printing support including publishing
printer attributes in active directory.

Dirol New loadable module support for passdb backends and character
sets.

9) New default dual-daemon winbindd support for better performance.

10) Support for migrating from a Windows NT 4.0 domain to a Samba
domain and maintaining user, group and domain SIDs.

11) Support for establishing trust relationships with Windows NT 4.0
domain controllers.

12) Initial support for a distributed Winbind architecture using
an LDAP directory for storing SID to uid/gid mappings.

13) Major updates to the Samba documentation tree.

14) Full support for client and server SMB signing to ensure
compatibility with default Windows 2003 security settings.

15) Improvement of ACL mapping features based on code donated by
Andreas Grünbacher.
