It took a while but now the information is out: "Samba Team Receives Microsoft Protocol Docs". The long version of the Samba announcement can be found here.

Since some of us had very long nights in the hot phases over the past years, I am very very happy to present you our press release in English, German, Italian, Spanish, and Swedish.

For more information see the article of the history of the case, one explaining some details of the agreement, and the PFIF Web site plus the PFIF agreement text.

Thanks to everybody who helped with that!!! All people from Samba and FSFE, our web and translator volunteers, our Donors, our Fellows, and all the rest I forgot :)
