Halfway on the road to SMB Traffic Analyzer 1.2.6 …
… is a point in time where I think it makes sense to show off a few of the things we are working on. While we will introduce deep changes to the database this time, and are working on a way to establish integrated version control for all components of SMB Traffic Analyzer, we will also have some features that simply rock for end users.
Such as Benjamin Brunner of the development team has taken the search function to a new level by creating a simple way to fuzzy search your full Samba network:
Other stuff we are working on for SMBTA 1.2.6 are about making it easier for the administrator to inspect and check the SMBTA setup. Among these, SMBTA 1.2.6 will be able to tell which VFS modules have connected, which protocol version was used by them, and where they did come from. Should it be required, for example for bugreports, the smbtad configuration can be retrieved in an easy way through smbtatools. SMBTA 1.2.6 components will self check for version updates and can tell the administrator what needs to be done in case of configuration errors.
