The Samba development team has just announced the release of Samba 4.0.

Samba 4.0 ships with an

LDAP directory server, Heimdal Kerberos authentication server, a secure Dynamic DNS server, and implementations of all necessary remote procedure calls for Active Directory. Samba 4.0 provides everything needed to serve as an Active Directory Compatible Domain Controller for all versions of Microsoft Windows clients currently supported by Microsoft, including the recently released Windows 8.

Aside from the usual stability, security and performance fixes, other highlights of this release are:
