Samba 4 Status Report Edition 5

tags = [, ]

It's been another busy week for Samba 4. I've been so distracted with actual development the last couple of weeks that I haven't actually had time to post an update report on it.

Metze and I have been working on making some of Samba4's internal files build as shared libraries. The idea is that we will later be able to 'export' libraries and make them easily available for others to use (GNOME, KDE, OpenChange). At the moment, we have support for shared libraries partially finished. Those interested in checking it out can do so by passing --enable-dso to the configure script.

Tridge has been working on inotify support in the NTVFS layer (file change notifications).

Rafal (mimir) has made the core of the DCE/RPC layer asynchronous.

Of course, there have been a lot of smaller changes as well.

It's been a busy week for Samba, overall. After Coverity published a list of potential bugs found by their static code analysis tools, Samba3 development got a major boost. In the meanwhile, we've delayed TP2 again. We're now waiting until things settle down, hopefully in the next few days.
