In reply to joty:

There never was development in two places - I simply offered another old version from the time before Peter stated that he wants to look into smbserver for download. I even made it clear in the announcement and on my website that it is just anohter old version but one which works better on IYONIX pc as the classic version. And Peter was aware of that version after his claim to look into smbserver since Thomas sent him the sources.

As far as I understood Peter he simply doesn't like hacks and thus didn't want that version to be online - nowhere. That is the same reasoning of Peter as for Firefox where he doesn't want the guide by Paul Vigay to be online which explains the work around to get FF2r2 to run. Simply put he wants real fixes only and no temporary work arounds or the like.
