The "-devel" suffix does not really 'mark' anything. It used to be a 
development snapshot until the recent 3.0.0 release and nobody bothered to 
change the name. still deems 2.2 as the 
recommended, "current stable release, suitable for use in production 
environments". I guess you'll need to evaluate by yourself, how suitable 
samba 3.0.0 really is for your production enviroment. I myself do like its 
UNICODE support/charset conversion features very much.
