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.
