Samba 3.0 Beta Released Announced

Jun 08, 2003, 00:47 (2 Talkback[s])

The Samba Team is proud to announce the availability of the first beta release of the Samba 3.0.0 code base. While we are significantly closer to the final release, I will remind you that this is a non-production release provided for testing only.

The source code can be downloaded from :

http://download.samba.org/samba/ftp/beta/

The uncompressed tarball and patch file have been signed using GnuPG. The Samba public key is available at

http://download.samba.org/samba/ftp/samba-pubkey.asc

Binary packages for RedHat, also signed by the Samba public key, have been released and can be found at

http://download.samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/

Others will be available as they are submitted by volunteers.

A simplified version of the CVS log of updates since 3.0alpha24 can be found in the the download directory under the name ChangeLog-3.0alpha24-3.0.0beta1. The Release Notes are available on-line at

http://www.samba.org/samba/whatsnew/samba-3.0.0beta.html

We are also taking this opportunity to beta test our new Bugzilla server. The intent is to replace the old jitterbug installation (bugs.samba.org/). The new bug tracking system is located at

https://bugzilla.samba.org/

Please search for existing bugs before filing new reports. As always, all bugs are our responsibility.

--Enjoy
The Samba Team
