A bug introduced in a recent release that could cause threads to wait
indefinately has been fixed. After time many threads could be blocked
resulting in wasted resources. The DC lookup code has been modified to
gracefully handle WINS returning an empty list (e.g. due to temporary
network failure). A simple fix has been applied that premits SMB signatures
to work without specifying preauthentication credentials. The
getAttributes() method will now return 31 bits of attributes whereas
previously it would mask the lower 6 bits that JCIFS actually uses. A bug
has been fixed that under certain conditions prevented copyTo() from copying
entire shares. A try/catch block has been added to copyTo() to permit the
copy to continue if an error occurs.

Greedo shoots first? Not in my Star Wars.
