Hi Mike,

  I'm new to the list and I'm unfamiliar with the JCIFS development/release process so my apologies if I'm treading old ground here.

  What about the not-so-near future? Can you make a rough guess when these will be released? Presumably those patches will be merged in to the main branch at some point.  What's necessary to get that to happen?

Hi Aravindan,

That information is actually received when reading security
descriptors. It is just not decoded or exposed through the API. But
there are fairly simple patches in the patches/ directory that
illustrate how add this sort of functionality. I think there's even a
patch for setting the Last Access Time.

There are no plans to add these features to JCIFS in the near future.
