 <P>LATEST UPDATES - mount.cifs mount helper now updated in Samba svn to version
-1.5. cifs vfs 1.28 version is included in 2.6.10 kernels. Key bug fix included
-for heavy stress cases - very small socket peek responses causing occassional
-abnormal session termination (invalid SMB message would be logged to dmesg).
-Important readdir fixes also included. POSIX ACL support added to Samba
-3.0.11 and later servers. New mount parm added for using the server's (persistant,
-stable) inode numbers on files and directories</P>
+1.7. umount.cifs helper for user unmount created. cifs vfs version 1.31
+is included in 2.6.12-rc2 kernel. cifs vfs 1.33 is current in cifs bk tree
+and svn. dbench benchmark performance imporved almost 10 fold over previous
+versions of cifs, and cifs memory usage under stress has been reduced.
+No high severity open, validated bug reports against 1.33 cifs.</P>
