    Release Notes: An all Unix platforms (except Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5) security fixes were made for the security advisories OPENAFS-SA-2009-001 and OPENAFS-SA-2009-002. Support for pre-release Linux 2.6.30 kernels was added. On Microsoft Windows the service priority class was increased to "High" to match the priority of system components that are dependent upon the a timely response. SMB error responses avoid returning errors that could confuse the Microsoft SMB redirector into disconnecting the connection to \\AFS.

      Release Notes: A large number of bugfixes, including in Rx timeouts and ubik recovery, are included, as are support for dynamic vcache allocation on Linux, new Linux kernel versions, multiple local Kerberos realms, FreeBSD clients, and Solaris caches on tmpfs and ZFS for Solaris 10 and later. An erroneous change in 1.4.9pre1 to the fileserver has been removed. If you are running with 1.4.9pre1 file servers, an immediate upgrade is recommended.

          Release Notes: afs_config.exe on Windows was fixed. In Linux, a race during file truncation has been corrected. Linux 2.6.29 and MacOS 10.3 (fixed) and OpenBSD 4.4 are supported. The code was fixed to compile on newer OpenSolaris versions. On all client platforms, the userspace AFS library now supports large files when supported by the platform. Reconnection with Disconnected AFS works in more circumstances. On all server platforms, Salvager no longer attempts to recreate headers in the wrong partition. Volumes are properly marked in use on creation. On all platforms, the documentation was updated, and further race conditions in Rx were corrected.

            Release Notes: On Windows, the NetIDMgr AFS Provider automated configuration logic was fixed for Kerberos referrals, rename operations are prevented for case insensitive filename matches, and the maximum number of background daemons was increased to 64. FreeBSD v7.1 and amd64 are now supported. On Linux, the generic fh (exportfs API) cache type is now available, and Linux 2.6.28 is now supported. MacOS X 10.3 support was fixed. On Solaris, large partition support was corrected, and a filesystem-agnostic cache is available on Solaris 10 and 11. On all platforms, the disconnected AFS support was updated, the vol-dump tool supports 2GB+ dumps where possible, and libuafs was updated.

              Release Notes: AIX 6.1 is now supported. FreeBSD 7 is now supported. On Linux, a deadlock is avoided when writing back pages in an mmap()ed file larger than the cache. Process tree walking for PAG garbage collection was updated to avoid oopses. Solaris 10 now defaults to namei fileservers. On all server systems, the fileserver "large" setting now implies 128 threads instead of 12. A sensible error is returned when a release or restore exhausts server resources. Jumbograms are disabled by default. Partitions over 2tb are now supported. On all systems, autoconf 2.62 is supported. Additional documentation was written.

                Release Notes: This release fixes a panic caused by corruption of the SMB virtual circuit list (race condition). It fixes a panic caused by receipt of a UTF-16 string that cannot be converted to UTF-8. It adds support for linked cells. and increases the length of the cell and realm names for Network Identity Manager dialogs. Under Linux, there is support for 2.6.28 (except NFS translator modules), and support for using the exportfs API. This release avoids deadlocks when writing back mmapped files larger than the cache, and avoids an oops when doing PAG garbage collection.

                  Release Notes: A number of changes to improve Rx behavior as well as other bugfixes are present, including to directory handling code on Linux when fakestat is enabled. Additionally, there are fixes to prevent deadlocking mmap for files larger than the cache on Linux. Support has been added for KBUILD_OUTPUT=... builds. The max number of entries has been raised, as cache managers routinely have more than 10,000 vnode status objects.

                    Release Notes: UNICODE support and optimization on Windows. This release prevents a crash that could occur when multiple file/directory change notifications were processed simultaneously. On Mac OS, AFS claims more free space so that Finder will attempt file copies. On Linux, spurious ENOTDIR during fakestat is avoided. An enhanced vldb error checker is included. A double-free is corrected in Rx.
