[jcifs] jcifs-1.1.11 released / File Corruption Bugfix

If  a  file  is  opened  with SmbFileOutputStream, written to, and then the
client  waits  for  jcifs.smb.client.soTimeout without any communication to
the  target,  a subsequent write could zero the contents of the file before
the  current file index resulting in file corruption. This problem has been
fixed.  An  alternative  to upgrading is to use RandomAccessFile which does
not have this problem.

Also  in  the  download  area  is  the  "trans" release. This version has a
completely  rewritten  transport layer, proper port 445+139 support as well
as the beginnings of new features destined for 2.0. Use with caution - it's

IRC - where men are men, women are men, and the boys are FBI agents.
