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
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.
