Current Status

Current Version: 4.0.2 Download Release Notes

The official press release of Samba 4 can be found on the Samba website.

In short, you can join a Windows (all recent releases should be supported) machine to a Samba Active Directory, and it will behave much as it does in AD, including Kerberos domain logins where applicable. Samba 4 is now at a point where it can begin replacing existing production deployments, and users are encouraged to try out Samba 4 in a test environment before implementing it in a work environment!

Except for a small number of deprecated features, Samba continues to provide all the features and functionality found in Samba 3.6, and as such is an excellent file server and domain member as well.
