     8=== Samba 3.3.x considerations ===
     9Samba 3.3.x builds currently come as drop-in replacements for a previous installation of any recent 3.0.x build.[[BR]][[BR]]
     10You cannot go back from 3.3.x to 3.0.x easily, as the internal format of the tdb files has been changed between 3.0.x and 3.3.x. If you intend to go back, please backup all tdb files in \lock and \private directories before updating and restore from backup before going back.[[BR]][[BR]]
     11While 3.3.x binaries have been tested for several weeks now and seem to work well in general, bear in mind that 3.3.x is still beta software and work in progress and therefore not ready for production use.[[BR]][[BR]]
     12Currently 3.3.x offers exactly one benefit over 3.0.x: [http://svn.netlabs.org/samba/ticket/59 Ticket 59] is gone. GUI-Tools and scripts work with 3.3.x, but only make little use of new features found in Samba 3.3.x.[[BR]][[BR]]

    814=== Samba Codepage support seems to be broken from 3.0.35 onward - why does this not work anymore? ===
