Samba 3.2 Released

Samba, the open source file and print server for Windows clients, has been updated to version 3.2. The previous stable version was version 3.0.30, and was licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2, but version 3.2 – this latest stable release – is released under the new GPL version 3.

Samba is an open source re-implementation of SMB/CIFS networking protocol written by Andrew Tridgell, and it is used to provide file and print services for Microsoft Windows clients. It is available on virtually all UNIX and UNIX-like operating systems.

Version 3.2 ships with the following improvements:

  • Support for clustered file server
  • Registry-based configuration management
  • Integration with Windows Vista service pack 1, and Windows server 2008
  • Support for encrypted network transport
  • IPv6 support
  • Low memory requirements

The detailed list of updates and improvements is available here. Most desktop Linux and BSD users are probably not going to need Samba, but if you want to play with it, it can be installed easily with your distros package manager. The latest version may be downloaded from the projects download page.
