samba 4

Now that samba4 is on current, I suggest updating to last version samba-4.0.6
There are many bugs fixed shown in Release Notes for Samba 4.0.6

I will not ask for any update, neither for the new version of Slackware.
It is completely understandable that a small team takes some time to upgrade a full OS.

Is it possible for the community to help in the testing?
Is there any way for the users to actively help in the development of the next version?

I already known about slackbuilds, in fact, I have there some contributions of mine.
The idea is to help Patrick, Eric, Robby and other members.

build the package and upload it somewhere, such as GitHub and call for testing
i think that worked in the past

libpng-1.6 requires probably rebuild a big number of packages.

If that was all it took, we'd have it. For reasons unknown to anyone but themselves, the PNG developers like to make libpng a complete moving target, requiring everything to be ported to the new version. Whatever the great new features are, I don't think they are worth it. Have a look around online for how that one breaks virtually all existing code and I think you'll get the same idea.

If I could suggest:

- vlc - matter of choice, I believe that MPlayer plays everything I need, but I like vlc better;
- minidlna - there is no media server in our current tree, so I rely on SBo, but it would be nice to have one in current tree;
- audacity - sound record, I don't believe we have a GUI alternative in current tree;
- transmission - ktorrent is fine but what if we don't use KDE?
- xarchive - the same, we have ark but what if we don't use KDE too?

Thanks.
