The official press release of samba 4 can be found on the [https://www.samba.org/samba/news/releases/4.0.0.html 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!
