- update to 0.9.6
  - new tool: smbldap-grouplist (list LDAP groups)

    - use gecos as displayName if givenName and userSN not provided
      (bug #14517)
  - smbldap-passwd:
    - new option: -p (allow root to set password from STDIN without
      verification, e.g. using a pipe) (bug #11964)
    - change userPassword, shadowLastChange and shadowMax individually e.g. no

  configuration handles the functionality directly rather than calling out to
