+16.04.2001 1.4.1
+ - Kernel side of smbfs committed in the FreeBSD-current. It controlled
+ by following options: LIBMCHAIN, LIBICONV, NETSMB, NETSMBCRYPTO and SMBFS.
+ - Removed static dependency on the libiconv library, option WITH_ICONV
+ removed as well. If you use libiconv support, make sure that the latest
+ port is installed.
+ - Multiple mount/umount operations called in parallel can cause kernel
+ panic - fixed.
+ - Misc code cleanups.
+
+26.02.2001 1.3.6
+ - Names of some options is the config.mk.in file are changed. The old ones
+ are still supported.
+ - Synch with changes in the recent -current (you'll need kernel compiled
+ from sources at least as of Feb 24).
+ - In all previous versions of smbfs signals weren't properly masked,
+ which caused erratical behavior of some programs (ftp(1) for example).
+ - Mounted shares may become "frozen" (no timeout occurs) if server died or
+ disconnected for some reason - fixed.
+
+09.02.2001 1.3.5
+ - The user and server names was swapped in the "TreeConnect"
+ request (fixed by Jonathan Hanna).
+ - smb requester could cause a panic if there is no free mbufs - fixed.
+ - It is possible to use smbfs with devfs now, but it wasn't tested under
+ SMP. Also note that device permissions will be wrong, because devfs
+ do not allow passing of credentials to the cloning function.
+ - nsmbX device moved from the /dev/net directory to /dev directory.
+
+31.01.2001 1.3.4
+ - Maintance: synch with changes in the recent -current
+
+28.01.2001 1.3.3
+ - Connection handling engine rewritten in order to reduce number of
+ possible deadlocks during reconnect operations.
+ - Directory traversals should be faster on large directories.
+ - smbfs now can talk to the NetApp servers (thanks to Jonathan Hanna).
+ - smbfs.sh.sample script updated (ideas from Nikolai Saoukh).
+ - Minor bug fixes.
+
+19.11.2000 1.3.2
+ - synch with changes in the recent -current
+ - nail down a nasty bug which may cause incorrect values supplied as
+ domain name (reported by Harald Weis).
+ - There was a bug in the directory listing code which caused long directory
+ traversals to fail (reported by A G F Keahan).
+
+29.10.2000 1.3.1
+ - An attempt was made to get rid from the possible kernel stack overflow.
+ - Now connection will be restored properly under -stable.
+ NOTE: NT servers have an 'AutoDisconnect' feature which will drop client
+ connection after some time of idleing. smbfs will restore connection on
+ the next request, but one may wish to setup a cron job with a simple
+ 'ls /ntmount' command.
+
+20.10.2000 1.3.0
+ - Network IO engine significantly reworked. Now it uses kernel threads
+ to implement 'smbiod' process which handles network traffic for each VC.
+ Previous model were incapable to serve large number of mount points and
+ didn't work well with intensive IO operations performed on a different
+ files on the same mount point. Special care was taken on better
+ usage of MP systems.
+ Unfortunately, kernel threads aren't supported by FreeBSD 3.X and for
+ now it is excluded from the list of supported systems.
+ - Reduce overhead caused by using single hash table for each mount point.
+
+26.09.2000 1.2.8 (never released)
+ - More SMP related bugs are fixed.
+ - Make smbfs compatible with the Linux emulator.
+ - smbfs now known to work with IBM LanManager (special thanks to
+ Eugen Averin <mad@euinf.dp.ua>)
+ - Fix problem with files bigger than 2GB (reported by Lee McKenna)
+ - Please note that smbfs may not work properly with FreeBSD 3.X.
+
+16.08.2000 1.2.7
+ - Maintance: use better algorithm to detect SYSCTL_HANDLER_ARGS changes
+ to avoid compilation problems on various versions of FreeBSD.
+
+07.08.2000 1.2.6
+ - Fix iconv support, was broken in the 1.2.5
+ - Minor corrections to 'smbutil view' command.
+ - Fix kernel memory leak caused by two subsequent and identical
+ 'smbutil login' commands.
+
+25.07.2000 1.2.5
+ - NetBIOS name resolver added. '-I' option still supported. WINS server
+ can be specified in the nsmbrc file (nbns variable). To use resolver
+ with Win9X machines you have to specify WINS server in the config file.
+
+12.07.2000 1.2.4
+ - Variable SRCTREE in the config.mk replaced with SYSDIR and should
+ point to the sys directory. '/usr/src/sys' for example.
+ - Correct problem with the keep-alive packets
+
+04.07.2000 1.2.3
+ - Killed some bugs related to the out-of-mbufs condition.
+ - new keyword 'addr' added to the config file to specify server address.
+ - Another attempt to make reconnection procedure more stable.
+
+21.06.2000 1.2.2
+ - Device handles wasn't freed under FreeBSD 3.4 - fixed.
+ Implement correct handling of multiple connections to the same NT
+ server (thanks to kit <kit.mitchell@team.xtra.co.nz>) for report.
+ More misc fixes for an NT servers.
+
+11.06.2000 1.2.1
+ - More bug fixes in the connection handling mechanism.
+ mount_smbfs(8) manpage has now proper description for an '-N' option.
+ smbutil supports new commands:
+ 'print' - send file to the remote printer
+ 'view' - list shares available on the specified host
+ 'login' - create permanent connection to remote host
+ 'logout'- counterpart of 'login'
+ 'crypt' - produce an encrypted password to store in the .nsmbrc file.
+
+01.06.2000 1.1.2
+ - Support for FreeBSD 3.4 added (see INSTALL file for details).
+ Add advisory locking support in order to make fcntl(2), flock(2)
+ system calls actually work on smbfs.
+ Few non-serious bugs fixed.
+
+16.05.2000 1.0.5
+ - fix authentication code, this caused troubles with NT server.
+ (Thanks to Neil Blakey-Milner and Andrew Zavjalov for testing)
+ Some documentation changes.
+
+14.05.2000 1.0.2
+ - first public release
