Hi Daniel,

there is no release plan for the next versions, but the feature request
tracker is open on sourceforge

At the moment when you log in you are redirected to the users home
directory. The home directory is specified as a parameter in web.xml
e.g. smb://fileserver/%username%/ where %username% is automatically

Restriction to special paths is not implemented but can be easily added:

in Controller.java (the main servlet) replace:

if (pathInfo.equals("")) {

with sth like:

if (pathInfo.equals("") || !pathInfo.startWith("/fileserver/share/to/")) {

pathInfo has the format: server/share/path/file.ext

Besides this you can only connect to servers listed in the parameter
"servers" in web.xml.

Group memberships are currently not part of the code. But I have seen
some php-code doing this with ldap-calls directly to the ad-controller,
so this is not impossible.
