Samba Creator Andrew Tridgell Joins OSDL
Tridgell is currently working on the next major release of Samba, version 4, that has five goals: protocol completeness, extreme testability, non-POSIX backends, fully asynchronous internals and flexible process models.
"Samba4 is reaching an important milestone as a complete re-write of the old Samba code with the ambitious goal to be able to become an Active Directory Domain Controller," Tridgell said. "I'm excited about my new role with OSDL and being free to dedicate my energies full-time to Samba."
