This is just FYI.

WHATSNEW.txt contains a little more information.  Especially, revival
of "share modes" parameter may obsolete needs of samba20 package.
But I can't check it.

I want to change samba package about its lock directory since I heard
that tdb files in lockdir shouldn't remove between system reboot from
pepole Samba Users Group Japan.

Quote from WHATSNEW.txt:

LDAP update

Much work has been done on the LDAP backend code. The configure
option --with-ldapsam is now considered to be stable. The schema
used has changed, see the file examples/LDAP/samba.schema for the
new schema.

New documentation explaining how to set up a Samba only PDC/BDC
setup has been added in the files Samba-LDAP-HOWTO and Samba-BDC-HOWTO
in the documentation tree.

winbindd daemon extended

Samba 2.2.2 was the first release to include the winbind daemon.
This code allows UNIX systems that implement the name service
switch (nss) to be entered into a Windows NT/2000 domain and
use the Domain controller for all user and group enumeration.

Samba 2.2.3 fixes the known memory leaks in winbindd and has
been extended to work with SGI IRIX and HPUX (11.x) in addition
to the earlier targets of Linux and Solaris.

For more information on using winbind, see the man pages for 
winbindd and wbinfo.

Note that winbindd is not installed by default.

New/Changed parameters in 2.2.3

For more information on these parameters, see the man pages for

Added/changed parameters.

unix extensions

Enables the experimental UNIX CIFS extensions in smbd. See the manpage
for more details.

default devmode

Some printer drivers will crash the Windows NT/2000 spooler service
if they are given a default devmode, some require it. This parameter
allows the administrator a choice of whether smbd returns such a 
default devmode for a driver.

share modes

This parameter has been restored to allow people who wish smbd to ignore
client share modes. This is *very dangerous* and should not be set without
full knowledge of what this is designed for.
