Well, "alpha supports", anyway. :)

As always, http://www.majen.net/smbldap/smbldap-installer-latest.tgz
is the newest version, which, ATM, is 3.0-alpha.

I've added a page in the documentation wiki where the new automated
PDC/BDC configuration can be documented, so have at it! ;)

In summary, this new feature includes:
1. Continual replication from your master LDAP server to all your
   slave LDAP servers (from your PDC to all your BDCs)
2. Automatic failover to a BDC as Domain Master should your PDC go

Samba 3 By Example goes into great detail about how such
a configuration can be used effectively in a multi-site WAN.
If you're even thinking about running Samba/LDAP, you should at least
familiarize yourself with this book:
http://samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/ or

Also, Dapper and Fedora Core 5 are now supported (thanks to Dave Trask
for debugging help on FC5).

Note: For FC5 you must *manually* disable SELinux and the firewall, or
the installer *will not work*. This is noted on the documentation
website, but I still expect to hear from lots of people who can't get
things working because the firewall is turned on... See
if you're installing on FC5.
