Thank you to everyone who has submitted bug reports, patches and other
contributions. afpfs-ng 0.8 is available for download.
What is new in afpfs-ng-0.8, February 18, 2008
1. New command line (non-FUSE) tools:
a) batch mode of afpcmd
This lets you do simple transfers, eg.
> afpcmd afp://user:pass@.../alexdevries/linux-2.6.14.tar.bz2
Connected to server Cubalibre using UAM "DHX2"
Connected to volume alexdevries
Getting file /linux-2.6.14.tar.bz2
Transferred 39172170 bytes in 2.862 seconds. (13687 kB/s)
b) interactive mode of afpcmd
This is file transfer tool similiar to an ftp client. Has (local)
completion and command history.
c) get status tool, afpgetstatus
A simple tool to get the status information of a server without
2. FUSE client improvements
Continuation of FUSE client development, including the introduction of
a new tool
called mount_afp, which has the same syntax as in Mac OS X. Better
post-deployment debugging, proper forced or unforced exit and other
3. Protocol fixes
Many protocol enhancements and bug fixes, including: support for AFP
servers, session keys, signatures, meta information, chmod and chown
Tested against Mac OS X, OS9, Airport and netatalk.
File transfer performance is now similiar or faster to Mac OS X.
4. Development library
The source code of afpfs-ng has now been changed to a library
support for multiple clients (examples are FUSE, afpcmd,
afpgetstatus). With this
library, more AFP clients (GIO, KIO) can be built with limited pain.
This API is
not yet stabilized.
FUSE client fully validated on Linux, builds on FreeBSD.
Command line client builds and runs on Linux, runs but is weakly
tested on FreeBSD
and Mac OS X.
There are manpages.
