Particularly noteworthy is the option "server multi channel support" which is no longer experimental but rather enabled by default in Samba 4.15 (on Linux and FreeBSD). Multi channel support is a topic that Stefan Metzmacher (SerNet GmbH & Samba Core Team) has dedicated himself to, cf. e.g. his presentation at sambaXP 2021 (https://youtu.be/eYxp8yJHpik) and his upcoming talk at SDC 2021.

Details on upgrading to SAMBA+ 4.15 can be found in the SAMBA+ HowTo collection.

With immediate effect, Jule Anger takes over the release management in the international team of the open source software Samba.

The previous release manager Karolin Seeger joins Red Hat on October 1st 2021. She will hand over Samba team's release management to Jule Anger, who has been working as a developer in SerNet's Samba department for 2 years. At the same time Jule Anger officially becomes a member of the international Samba core team. The release management for Samba will thus continue to be sponsored by SerNet after the departure of Karolin Seeger.

Karolin's move also brings other changes: Ralph Böhme succeeds her as team leader of the Samba department at SerNet. He moved to SerNet and the Samba team in 2013 with the forseeable end of Netatalk, the software he mainly supported for coupling Linux and macOS via AFP. Commenting on the arrival of Jule Anger, he says: "With Jule, we have a highly motivated colleague in our team and are very pleased that she will contribute to the Samba project on an international level with a breath of fresh air."

About SerNet: SerNet is the leading provider of services and products around the free software Samba and is active worldwide. With SAMBA+, SerNet offers its own professional Samba distribution.
