Description David Disseldorp 2014-11-07 10:26:23 UTC
I'd like to see the following text added to WHATSNEW.txt for Samba 4.2.0:

smbclient archival improvements

Archive creation and extraction support in smbclient has been rewritten
to use libarchive. This fixes a number of outstanding bugs in Samba's
previous custom tar implementation and also adds support for the
extraction of zipped archives.
smbclient archive support can be enabled or disabled at build time with
corresponding --with[out]-libarchive configure parameters.

Patch to follow...
