Software 42498 Published by

Samba version 4.20.2 has been released. Since 4.20.1, the Samba project has received various improvements, including breaking case insensitivity with vfs_widelinks on DFS shares, creating Samba build difficulties, and causing out-of-bounds access with non-transitive comparison functions. The project has also updated./configure with new vendor name and patching revision argument options. Other issues include dynamic DNS updates with internal DNS, s4:nbt_server not handling unusual requests, and problems with winbindd, net ads join, and vfs_recycle.
