News & Announcements

Samba 4.0 has been released

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

Samba is a Free Software implementation of SMB/CIFS protocols, which makes it possible for any system running Samba to function as a file, print and authentication server suite for Microsoft Windows and UNIX-like clients.

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:

  • Support for SMB2.1 file serving
  • Support for integrated clustered file serving
  • Easy integration into existing Directory Services

Since Samba 4.0 was just released today, it is not likely that it has hit your distribution’s repository, but the beta version should be already there. You may read the release notes here. Official Samba documentations are available here.
