Congratulations Samba Team!
The Samba Team has announced the release of Samba 4 Beta 1! Why is this good news? Well, Samba 4 supports Active Directory** logon protocols. In other words, Samba 4 can act as a Microsoft Active Directory server much in the way Samba 3 can act as a domain controller (PDC). That's a game changer.
Have no fear, ClearOS 6 was re-designed with Samba 4 in mind. We'll be posting more information about the ClearOS Samba 4 roadmap in the near future. For now, it's hats off to Samba!
