The SMB signing code was totally broken in the last release making 1.2.0 useless in many environments. It has been repaired. The setAttributes method did not work on directories. This has been fixed and the masks used to filter attributes has been optimized to allow getting and setting all possible attributes based on observed XP behavior. The getType() method would always return TYPE_SHARE if the SmbFiles were obtained through the listFiles() method. This issue has been fixed - getType() may now also return TYPE_PRINTER and TYPE_NAMEDPIPE (this has been broken for a long time BTW). There have been a variety of other subtle fixes as well.
