Release Notes: A Demand Attach Fileserver shutdown bug which could cause a crash was corrected. 32-bit installers are now built with Visual Studio 2005. All vos.exe commands now support the "-noresolve" option, which forces the display of IP addresses instead of DNS hostnames. On all Unix platforms, the pthreaded versions of the ubik server and client programs are now available. Fixes were made for Fedora Core 9 and Linux 2.6.25. Mount points are filled correctly when using fakestat.
Release Notes: Notable changes include updates for newer Linux kernels (including 2.6.25), Solaris 11 client support updates, updated Mac OS X support, a fix for a potential file server deadlock, improvements to the host tracking in the file server, and updates to ubik to prevent database truncation when network links between database servers are unreliable. There were also fixes for the Linux client support.

This is a release candidate.
Release Notes: System clock reversing is handled in the Rx event handler. Partitions greater than 2 terabytes are supported in vos and the server processes. For Microsoft Windows event logging was fixed. A timeout problem when opening files or requesting locks when the file in question is already write-locked by another machine was fixed. A deadlock that can occur when "fs flushall" is executed was fixed. A crash in smb_WriteData that would occur if an application opened the file as read-only and then sent a write request anyway was fixed.
Release Notes: Avoids blocking File Server client threads when the file server is already waiting for a callback response. Better handling of ubik database recovery. On Microsoft windows, dirty buffers are not removed from the hash table. For 64-bit Windows, the large socket values could be truncated. Performance enhancements include: better thread handling for Rx messages, better management of read locks, and reduced lookup times for objects. There are new registry values "EnableSMBAsyncStore" and "SMBAsyncStoreSize" to tweak CIFS client timeouts. There are fixes for Linux s390x kernel module builds.
Release Notes: Documentation was updated for all platforms. A file server FID leak was corrected. Rx library performance was improved. For Microsoft Windows, the ability to browse \\AFS with "NET VIEW" and the Explorer Shell was restored. Support for the 16-bit application environment was restored. The AFS System Tray tool (afscreds) returns permission denied errors when Vista User Account Control blocks actions. Tokens are no longer discarded in response to RXKADBADTICKET errors. For all Linux systems, s390x support was corrected. Updated RPM packaging. A port for ARM Linux was added.
Release Notes: On all platforms, a cmdebug -cellservdb option and a pts -localauth option has been added. A volserver incremental restore issue has been fixed. A critical Windows bug where no .readonly failover happened when a file server was unable to attach a volume. The Explorer Shell option Symlinks->Add no longer crashes the shell when the path is not in AFS. An error with symlinks containing "." or ".." has been fixed. A new "-literal" option is available for some fs commands. A crash in afsdb handling is avoided. This release is more compatible with Linux Xen and Linux 2.6.24. An ARM Linux port has been added.
Release Notes: These problems have been fixed: A buffer reference count leak was introduced in 1.5.29. It would cause the cache to fill, then no additional data would be read, nor written. PTS auto-registration would fail if the Kerberos referrals protocol was used to obtain the Kerberos v5 service ticket for AFS. (This would occur if KFW 3.2.x was installed and there was no [domain_realm] entry for the AFS volume database service host domains.) After a system resume or a network adapter configuration change, communication with the AFS client service could be lost.
Release Notes: The fileserver host tracking code had a missing lock on a host structure; that lock has been added. Fileserver handling for clients that are giving up callbacks did not hold a lock, making it unsafe and allowing clients to potentially crash the server by racing. The fileserver now leaves a core file when it is doing a shutdown due to error conditions. The fileserver again allows UFS as a valid filesystem type (regression in 1.4.5). The cbd handler for fileserver status data had an interpretation error that could cause crashes. The fileserver accurately tracks the number of callbacks on a given file.
