So I've been poking around the Samba development tree for one of my proposed projects here at the university. The aim is to create a lightweight version of the protocol to be used with these "information sharing" small robots. These things are basically little critters that need to store info and share it with each other when one requests it. All of that isn't my job, so I don't get too involved with it. Anyway, while playing around with it, I realized that Samba 4 is going to kick major ass. Seriously, the roadmap calls for complete and total SMB/CIFS compatability, implementing features even Microsoft hasn't yet. They also plan on integrating LDAP and KRB right in the mix. Samba 4 will be in one word... "WHOA!"
