I don't use davfs2 myself for many years now and would like to hand the project over to someone with more interest than me.
Please contact me by email.

Version 1.6.0 released
     posted by _71007, Fri 07 Aug 2020 01:56:43 PM UTC

The new release brings:

  • The coda module is dropped. It would have required some serious maintenance. But the fuse kernel file system is better suited anyway. So coda is no longer required.
  • The neon library from version 0.31 on has a workaround for SharePoint's href-bug. davfs2 can use this workaround.
  • Some minor bug fixes (see the ChangeLog file).
Version 1.5.6 released

An new version is available. Please see the ChangeLog file for a list of bugs that have been fixed in this version.

Another Bug Fix Release 1.5.4
     posted by _71007, Sun 17 Apr 2016 07:46:50 PM UTC

Just after releasing 1.5.3 two important bugs showed up that needed fixing.
- mount.davfs frequently reads /proc/mounts. This is necessary with coda but not with fuse. When running two instances of mount.davfs using fuse these reads may trigger a kernel bug and create a deadlock.
- when mount.davfs receives SIGTERM it stops reading from the fuse device. In this case kernel fuse will make umount(8) hang forever.
Both bugs are fixed in release 1.5.4.

Bugfix Release 1.5.3
     posted by _71007, Tue 05 Apr 2016 11:15:08 AM UTC

This release fixes a stack smashing error that only showed on 32-bit systems and when compiled with -fstack-protector-all.
