This release of the JCIFS client consists of the following changes.

o If   the   jcifs.netbios.hostname   property  is  set,  the  client  will
  communicate  using  only  NetBIOS  over  port  139.  This is required for
  environments that implement a policy restricting users to logging in from 
  certain computers.
o Under  stress  the  client  could  incorrectly attempt to use the invalid 
  "NULL" transport. This has been fixed.
o Filter  users  could experience exceptions due to using the port 0 rather
  than the default CIFS port.
o The  client  should  now  handle partial reads and socket exceptions more
o Under  stress, the DFS referral query could cause the client to deadlock.
  This has been fixed.
