Release Notes: Major changes since the last entry.
Release Notes: This release supports "tree mounts", where a single key implies multiple mount points. This is particularly useful to support a universal mount point, frequently referred to (and mounted) as /net.
Release Notes: This version should fix problems with local filesystems. If you are using a 2.4 series kernel, mount 2.10p (from the util-linux package) is highly recommended.
Release Notes: This release includes LDAP lookup, adjusts bind mounts to util-linux 2.10o and linux-2.4.0-test*, fixes race in SIGCHLD, and "missing module name" in the multimount module.
Release Notes: This version supports "bind" mounts introduced in linux-2.3.99-pre7.7 instead of using symlinks. If you are using a version of the Linux kernel which supports "bind" mounts, you will no longer see symlinks when mounting local filesystems.
Release Notes: Unused scaffolding directories are now cleaned up if a mount doesn't complete. The rc scripts were fixed, and now include a more obvious place to put options for the daemon. The included RPM spec file now works. Adjustments were made to deal with autofs4 being in the standard 2.3 kernel.
Release Notes: Fixes to mount_autofs with options were added. Documentation changes from RedHat's RPM were merged in. Support for installing the included samples via "make install_samples" was added. The samples/rc.autofs file was made appropriate for both RedHat and Debian. The now-obsolete mount_smbfs was removed. Be sure to read "README.smbfs" before trying to mount an smbfs filesystem using autofs. A new lookup_multi module was created, as well as a new mount_changer module for selecting slots out of a media changer automatically. A spec file for creating an RPM is now included.
Release Notes: Autofs 4 adds tree mounts, which means that autofs can manage entire trees of filesystems under the auto-mountpoint rather than single filesystems. This allows Solaris /net style functionality. Autofs 4.0.0-pre1 is the first test release of this new code, and is in the testing-v4/ directory. It also requires the kernel patches available at the same place.
