Release Notes: Support for HP-UX 11i and 11.22 was added. Support for Linux on AMD Opteron was added. Several race conditions in the fileserver which could result in crashes, deadlocks, and unclean shutdowns have been fixed. The Solaris client was modified for use with current kernel jumbo patches. The Mac OS client was modified to support Disk Arbitration. The Linux client was modified to support Process Authentication Group garbage collection and to preclude shutting down the cache manager while AFS is still mounted.

Release Notes: In this version, HP-UX 11.0 is now supported. The AFS-NFS translator is now supported on Solaris versions through Solaris 8. Support for native Kerberos v5 authentication is now included (but not new encryption types). A "klog" replacement is not yet provided. Linux support has been updated to deal with damaged Red Hat kernels. Windows clients will no longer create files with incorrect timestamps.

    Release Notes: In this version, the XDR vulnerability recently discovered in SunRPC that was also present in Rx has been fixed. The volserver and the AFS database servers are known to have this vulnerability. A bug which could cause a problem getting AFS PAGs introduced in 1.2.5 was fixed. The Linux client contains SMP fixes. Solaris 9 support has been fixed, and Solaris x86 support has been added. The PAM module with Kerberos support is now compiled correctly. There is also one new feature, fakestat, which eases problems inadvertently caused by traversing a directory of mount points to foreign cells.

    Release Notes: Client versions include fixes to guard against possibility of denial of service attacks including changes to IRIX and AIX clients to preclude recently discovered problems which can panic these clients, existing in all previous OpenAFS versions.

    •  24 May 2002 02:01

    Release Notes: The Linux client includes works with newer kernels and the file creation problems in 2.2 series kernels was fixed. A dentry caching change was made, and a new sysctl interface added. The Solaris client now forks instead of using the deprecated newproc for the Rx listener, and allows a shutdown and restart. The Darwin client no longer panics during unlink operations. Several generic client issues were also fixed, as well as a file server issue caused looping when clearing host callbacks.

    •  01 Feb 2002 01:55

    Release Notes: The Linux client has several fixes including masking signals in afsd system call helpers, holding signals while user processes are blocking in AFS calls, and dealing with events occurring before they are slept for. Other ports have minor bugfixes.

    •  17 Oct 2001 02:47

    Release Notes: A fix to prevent the Linux client from oopsing when stat()ing a large number of directories, Rx MTU calculation fixes for Irix, Solaris and Linux, and dynamic root (/afs) support for all Unix versions added.

    •  20 Jul 2001 05:03

    Release Notes: This version fixes an unintentional semantic change introduced in 1.1.0, which caused symbolic links to become unresolvable in a directory on which a user had only "l" (lookup) ACL permissions. It also fixes backup to honor an EOF (control-D) and exit.

    •  18 Jul 2001 00:23

    Release Notes: OpenAFS is now built using configure. AFSDB support has been enabled by default. RedHat Linux 7.1 SMP kernel support now works.
