Version 1.6.0 released
     posted by wbaumann, Fri 07 Aug 2020 01:56:43 PM UTC - 0 replies

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).

Another Bug Fix Release 1.5.4
     posted by wbaumann, Sun 17 Apr 2016 07:46:50 PM UTC - 0 replies

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 wbaumann, Tue 05 Apr 2016 11:15:08 AM UTC - 0 replies

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

Bugfix release 1.5.2
     posted by wbaumann, Sat 23 Aug 2014 06:23:45 PM UTC - 0 replies

A backward incompatible change in util-linux caused umount to fail. This release fixes the problem.
