Netatalk 3.1.0 ============== The Netatalk development team is proud to announce the first release of the Netatalk 3.1 release series. Early adopters are encouraged to update production systems. Netatalk is a freely-available Open Source AFP fileserver. A *NIX/*BSD system running Netatalk is capable of serving many Macintosh clients simultaneously as an AppleShare file server (AFP). The suite contains: * netatalk - the main server service controller * afpd - the AFP file server daemin * cnid_metad - the CNID database multiplexing daemon * cnid_dbd - the CNID database daemon serving CNIDs for AFP volumes * various supporting programs and utilities Summary of major new features and enhancements in 3.1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * AFP Spotlight Support with Gnome Tracker: https://projects.gnome.org/tracker/ Please refer to the online manual for details about compiling Netatalk with Spotlight support and how to configure: http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/3.1/htmldocs/installation.html#compiling-netatalk http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/3.1/htmldocs/configuration.html Please make sure to read the upgrading section in the Netatalk online manual before trying to upgrade your system from version 2: http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/3.1/htmldocs/upgrade.html License ~~~~~~~ Netatalk is a Free/Open Source Software project and is released under the GNU General Public License (GPLv2). The full license text is available at: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.txt Changes in 3.1.0 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * NEW: AFP Spotlight support with Gnome Tracker * NEW: New option "spotlight" (G/V) * NEW: Configure option --with-tracker-pkgconfig-version * NEW: Configure option --with-tracker-prefix * NEW: If Spotlight is enabled, launch our own dbus instance * NEW: New option "dbus daemon" (G) * UPD: Add configure option --with-afpstats for overriding the result of autodetecting dbus-glib presence * NEW: Add recvfile support with splice() on Linux. New global options "recvfile" (default: no) and "splice size" (default 64k). * NEW: CNID backend "mysql" for use with a MySQL server * FIX: Build fixes for the Kerberos UAM * UPD: Use dedicated exit code for AFP connections that were dropped by the client right after the TCP handshake Changes in 3.0.6 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * FIX: charset conversion failed when copying from Mac OS 9. Bug #523. * UPD: Don't force S_ISGID for directories on FreeBSD. Bug #525. * NEW: Add support for ZFS ACLs on FreeBSD with libsunacl. From FR#83. * FIX: Active Directory LDAP queries for ACL support with new options "ldap user filter" and "ldap group filter". Bug #526. Changes in 3.0.6 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * FIX: charset conversion failed when copying from Mac OS 9. Bug #523. * UPD: Don't force S_ISGID for directories on FreeBSD. Bug #525. * NEW: Add support for ZFS ACLs on FreeBSD with libsunacl. From FR#83. * FIX: Active Directory LDAP queries for ACL support with new options "ldap user filter" and "ldap group filter". Bug #526. * NEW: Option "vol dbnest", when set to true, the CNID database for a volume is stored in the volume root of a share in a directory .AppleDB like in Netatalk 2. Defaults to false. From FR#84. * FIX: Small fix in the DSI tickle handling. Bug #528. * UPD: Enhance handling of connection attempts when hitting the connection limit. Bug #529. * FIX: Saving from Word to a folder that is a symlink to a folder on another filesystem results in a crash of the afpd process and the save to fail. This happens only if the option "follow symlinks" is enabled. Bug #532. * FIX: Disable Kerberos UAM if AFP service principal name can't be evaluated. Fixes bug #531. * FIX: Fix handling of large number of volumes. Bug #527. * NEW: Configure option --with-tbd which can be used to disable the use of the bundled tdb and use a system installed version. Changes in 3.0.5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * FIX: Fix a crash when using pam_winbind. Fixes bug #516. * NEW: New global/volume option "ignored attributes" * FIX: "afp listen" option failed to take IPv6 addresses. Bug #515. * FIX: Fix a possible crash in set_groups. Bug #518. * NEW: Send optional AFP messages for vetoed files, new option "veto messages" can be used to enable sending messages. Then whenever a client tries to access any file or directory with a vetoed name, it will be sent an AFP message indicating the name and the directory. From FR #81. * NEW: New boolean volume option "delete veto files". If this option is set to yes, then Netatalk will attempt to recursively delete any vetoed files and directories. FR #82. * UPD: systemd unit dir is /usr/lib/systemd/system . * FIX: Saving files from application like MS Word may result in the file loosing metadata like the Finder label. Bug #521. Changes in 3.0.4 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * FIX: Opening files without metadata EA may result in an invalid metadata EA. Check for malformed metadata EAs and delete them. Fixes bug #510. * FIX: Fix an issue with filenames containing non-ASCII characters that lead to a failure setting the size of a files ressource fork. This affected application like Adobe Photoshop where saving files may fail. Fixes bug #511. * UPD: Enhance ACL mapping, change global ACL option 'map acl' to take the following options: "none", "rights" (default), "mode". none = no mapping, this resembles the previous false/no setting rights = map ACLs to Finder UARights, this resembles the previous true/yes setting. This is the default. mode = map ACLs to Finder UARights and UNIX mode From FR #73. * FIX: Fix a possible crash in cname() where cname_mtouname calls dirlookup() where the curdir is freed because the dircache detected a dev/inode cache difference and evicted the object from the cache. Fixes bug #498. * FIX: Add missing include, fixes bug #512. * FIX: Change default FinderInfo for directories to be all 0, fixes bug 514. * NEW: New option "afp interfaces" which allows specifying where Netatalk listens for AFP connections by interface names.

Add configure option --with-pam-confdir to specify alternative path. * NEW: AFP stats about active session via dbus IPC. Client side python program `afpstats`. Requires dbus, dbus-glib any python-dbus. configure option --dbus-sysconf-dir for specifying dbus system security configuration files. New option 'afpstats' (default: no) which determines whether to enable the feature or not. * NEW: configure option --with-init-dir * NEW: dtrace probes, cf include/atalk/afp_dtrace.d for available probes. * UPD: Reload groups when reloading volumes. FR #71. * FIX: Attempt to read read-only ._ rfork results in disconnect. Fixes bug #502. * FIX: File's ressource fork can't be read if metadata EA is missing. Fixes bug #501. * FIX: Conversion from adouble v2 to ea for directories. Fixes bug #500. * FIX: Error messages when mounting read-only filesystems. Fixes bug #504. * FIX: Permissions of ._ AppleDouble ressource fork after conversion from v2 to ea. Fixes bug #505. * UPD: Use FreeBSD sendfile() capability to send protocol header. From FR #75. * UPD: Increase IO size when sendfile() is not used. From FR #76. * FIX: Can't set Finder label on symlinked folder with "follow symlinks = yes". Fixes bug #508. * FIX: Setting POSIX ACLs on Linux Fixes bug #506. * FIX: "ad ls" segfault if requested object is not in an AFP volume. Fixes bug #496.

Fixes bug #473. * FIX: Dont copy our metadata EA in copyfile(). Fixes bug #452. * FIX: Fix an error where catalog search gave incomplete results. Fixes bug #479. * REM: Remove TimeMachine volume used size FCE event. * UPD: Add quoting support to '[in]valid users' option. Fixes bug #472. * FIX: Install working PAM config on Solaris 11. Fixes bug #481. * FIX: Fix a race condition between dbd and the cnid_dbd daemon which could result in users being disconnected from volumes when dbd was scanning their volumes. Fixes bug #477. * FIX: Netatalk didn't start when the last line of the config file afp.conf wasn't terminated by a newline. Fixes bug #476. * NEW: Add a new volumes option 'follow symlinks'. The default setting is false, symlinks are not followed on the server. This is the same behaviour as OS X's AFP server. Setting the option to true causes afpd to follow symlinks on the server. symlinks may point outside of the AFP volume, currently afpd doesn't do any checks for "wide symlinks". * FIX: Automatic AppleDouble conversion to EAs failing for directories. Fixes bug #486. * FIX: dbd failed to convert appledouble files of symlinks. Fixes bug #490.

(*BSD is not supported yet) Changes in 3.0 alpha3 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * NEW: afpd: Per volume "login message", NetAFP bug ID #18 * NEW: afpd: Cross-platform locking (share modes) on Solaris and derivates with Solaris CIFS/SMB server. Uses new Solaris fcntl F_SHARE share reservation locking primitives. Enabled by default, set global "solaris share reservations" option to false to disable it. * NEW: ad: ad set subcommand for changing Mac metadata on the server * UPD: unix charset is UTF8 by default vol charset is same value as unix charset by default * UPD: .AppleDesktop/ are stored in $localstatedir/netatalk/CNID (default: /var/netatalk/CNID), databases found in AFP volumes are automatically moved * FIX: afpd: Server info packet was malformed resulting in broken server names being displayed on clients * FIX: afpd: Byte order detection. Fixes an error where Netatalk on OpenIndiana returned wrong volume size information. Changes in 3.0 alpha2 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * UPD: afpd: Store '.' as is and '/' as ':' on the server, don't CAP hexencode as "2e" and "2f" respectively * UPD: afdp: Automatic name conversion, renaming files and directories containing CAP sequences to their not enscaped forms * UPD: afpd: Correct handling of user homes and users without homes * UPD: afpd: Perform complete automatic adouble:v2 to adouble:ea conversion as root. Previously only unlinking the adouble:v2 file was done as root * UPD: dbd: -C option removes CAP encoding * UPD: Add graceful option to RedHat init script * UPD: Add --disable-bundled-libevent configure options When set to yes, we rely on a properly installed version on libevent CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS should be set properly to pick that up * UPD: Run ldconfig on Linux at the end of make install * FIX: afpd: ad cp on appledouble = ea volumes * FIX: dbd: ignore ._ appledouble files * REM: Volumes options "use dots" and "hex encoding" Changes in 3.0 alpha1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * NEW: Central configuration file afp.conf which replaces all previous files * NEW: netatalk: service controller starting and restarting afpd and cnid_metad as necessary * NEW: afpd: Extended Attributes AppleDouble backend (default) * UPD: CNID databases are stored in $localstatedir/netatalk/CNID (default: /var/netatalk/CNID), databases found in AFP volumes are automatically moved * UPD: Start scripts and service manifests have been changed to only start the new netatalk service controller process * UPD: afpd: UNIX privileges and use dots enabled by default * UPD: afpd: Support for arbitrary AFP volumes using variable expansion has been removed * UPD: afpd: afp_voluuid.conf and afp_signature.conf location has been changed to $localstatedir/netatalk/ (default: /var/netatalk/) * UPD: afpd: default server messages dir changed to $localstatedir/netatalk/msg/ * UPD: dbd: new option -C for conversion from AppleDouble v2 to ea * REM: AppleTalk support has been removed * REM: afpd: SLP and AFP proxy support have been removed * REM: afpd: legacy file extension to type/creator mapping has been removed * REM: afpd: AppleDouble backends v1, osx and sfm have been removed Supported Platforms ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As of Netatalk 3.0 the following operating systems are supported: * FreeBSD * Linux * OpenBSD * NetBSD * Solaris and derivates Netatalk may compile and run on other operating systems as well, but it is not well-tested on those.
