The Samba software suite is a collection of programs that
implements the SMB protocol for unix systems, allowing you to serve
files and printers to Windows, NT, OS/2 and DOS clients, as well as
run as a domain controller for Active Directory.

Samba 4 is quite stable but does not yet provide all the features that Samba 3
has. It also provides a number of important features that Samba 3 does not yet
have and is unlikely to support in the near future. For this reason, we 
will be uploading a separate source package.
