Description Michael Osipov 2022-05-09 10:58:58 UTC
Please add/create a port for Samba 4.16 both 4.12 and 4.13 have been discontinued by the Samba team.

I request this too

I was hoping there is an attachment :)

The problem with the post 4.14 is that VFS interface has changed noticeably and changes in the ports modules require thorough testing/checking...

So, if someone would like to give me a hand on that - it'll be much appreciated.

I looked into the port Makefile and almost started to try due to the complexity. I am willing to test. I run Samba only for file services, no DC or else.

Thanks for the explanation why newer Samba versions haven't made it into ports.
