The Samba Team is proud to announce the availability of the latest stable production release, 3.0.14, and the newest testing preview release, 3.0.15pre1.

Samba 3.0.14 is the latest stable release of Samba. This is the version that production Samba servers should be running for all current bug-fixes. Please read about the important changes in this release.

The Samba 3.0.14 source code can be downloaded now. The GnuPG signature for the uncompressed tarball is also available. Precompiled packages for various platforms are available in the Binary_Packages download area.

Samba 3.0.14 is also available via BitTorrent (samba-3.0.14.tar.gz.torrent). Note that when downloading via BitTorrent, you are encouraged to verify the resulting uncompressed tarball's GPG signature.

Samba 3.0.15pre1 is a preview release of the Samba 3.0.15 code base and is provided for testing only. This release is not intended for production servers. However, there have been several bug fixes and new features added since 3.0.14 that we feel are important to make available to the Samba community for wider testing. Please read the Release Notes for a description of changes. There are still more changes planned before the final 3.0.15 release.
