There are several significant changes in this release. These include:

 o A deadlock could occur if the client tried to logoff and logon at
   the same instant. This has been fixed.
 o It was discovered that in at least some cases "preauthentication"
   did not work properly. A very simple logical error would cause the
   wrong signing digest to be installed. This has been fixed.
 o The ACL patch has been integrated. The SmbFile.getSecurity() method
   is now available.
 o The jcifs.smb.client.responseTimeout and jcifs.smb.client.soTimeout
   values have been increased from 10000ms and 15000ms to 30000ms and
   35000 respectively. Users with crawler type applications will almost
   certainly want to reduce these values.
 o Several logical errors in DFS referral handling have been fixed
   (still no fix for the mystery preemtive behavior observed by Windows
 o Documentation has been updated significantly.
