Release Notes: For all systems, minor bugs were fixed, including Rx fixes and vos dryrun improvements. RXAFS_GetStatistics64 now returns statistics properly. For all Unix platforms, the cacheout program is now built, and a potential panic in bulkstatus is avoided. On FreeBSD, shutdown of the Rx kernel listener was fixed to avoid a potential dereference after it's gone. On Linux, the packaging was updated for the current configure options and built files. On MacOS, the DNS resolver is reinitialized on IP address change. On Windows, the software properly fails over to other replicas on bulkstat IO errors, and directory entry buffers are validated to avoid crashing the service.
Release Notes: This is the recommended production-ready release for Microsoft Windows users. Other platforms should use 1.4.11. This release has official support for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. It prevents a file server bug from causing an "unexpected network error" when writing to files. It promotes DNS SRV records as superior to DNS AFSDB records. It fixes the SMB redirector disconnecting sometimes. All UNIX clients support SRV records for discovering AFS servers. A race/crash in volserver has been fixed. Mac OS X has Preferences Pane improvements. Core file handling works correctly on HP-UX.
