Well, blogging can be full of excitement.  I have found out that my blog posted on May 20th contains a non factual sentence as far as beta 3 is concerned.  The following sentence: "SMB2.0 will also support transactions, symbolic links and client side encryption" is not correct.  Transaction support and client side encryption will not be available in Windows Server 2008 and therefore are not in the beta 3 release either.  I apologize for the confusion.
