    Release Notes for Samba 4.0.0
    December 11, 2012
    =============================


    This is is the first stable release of Samba 4.0.

    This release contains the best of all of Samba's
    technology parts, both a file server (that you can reasonably expect
    to upgrade existing Samba 3.x releases to) and the AD domain
    controller work previously known as 'Samba4'.

    Major enhancements in Samba 4.0.0 include:

    Active Directory services
    =========================

    Samba 4.0 supports the server-side of the Active Directory logon
    environment used by Windows 2000 and later, so we can do full domain
    join and domain logon operations with these clients.

    Our Domain Controller (DC) implementation includes our own built-in
    LDAP server and Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) as well as the
    Samba3-like logon services provided over CIFS. We correctly generate
    the infamous Kerberos PAC, and include it with the Kerberos tickets we
    issue.

    When running an AD DC, you only need to run 'samba' (not smbd/nmbd/winbindd),
    as the required services are co-coordinated by this master binary.
    The tool to administer the Active Directory services is called 'samba-tool'.

    A short guide to setting up Samba 4 as an AD DC can be found on the wiki:

    Looks like getting rid of Active Directory is on the list f things to do for 2013.

    I've just had a quick look through that document - this is extraordinary stuff.
