A bug in copyTo() has been found and fixed that could result in the
operation failing and timing out. The default jcifs.smb.client.snd_buf_size
has been changed from 5000 to 16644. When copying data between larger
servers with copyTo() (servers that negotiate larger buffer sizes) the
result is a noticable preformance increase. Adjustments have been made
regarding a null pointer exception triggered by an internal method during
certain error scenarios. The client will now failover to a
jcifs.smb.client.domain controller for browser information if the LMB query
fails. Methods have been added to SmbSession that support the specification
of alternative port. Some incorrect debugging output has been fixed. A
clause has been added to SmbFile.delete() to subvert an exception caused
exclusively by the Oracle FilesOnline CIFS implementation. The NTLM HTTP
Authentication documentation has been slightly updated.
