Samba 3.0.10 has been ported to SkyOS today. All configuration is done through a plugin in the System Manager, making configuration very simple, with just a few mouse clicks.Users can add shares one by one, or by using the “Quick Sharing” mode to immediatly make a common shared folder available to users on other computers running either SkyOS, Microsoft Windows, Linux and other operating systems. The entire SAMBA configuration file management, server starting and handling is done in the background, “hidden” by a nice configuration utility.
Furthermore, the first issue of Live Query, the new SkyOS newsletter, has been released and features a review of the most recent beta, an interview with Chris Marshall, of the SkyOS team, and a changelog of the changes since the last beta a few months back.

The newsletter can be found right here in PDF format. An HTML version will be available soon.
