Changes from the 1.4b1 release:
Fixed the maximum free/total volume size in afpd.
Made ~ the default volume in afpd.
Fixed pid file handling and changed setpgrp() to setpgid() in afpd,
papd, and atalkd.
Added code to afpd to set the Unix file time stamps with utime().
Fixed a bug in papd's printcap code which limited it to 15 or so
Fixed papd's handling of piped printers.
Fixed papd's handling of bad job names.
Fixed atalkd to send NBP LKUP packets from NBP port.
Added "sync;sync;sync" to Solaris kinstall to help with streams
Added nlocalrts to streams ddp.conf. Thanks Thomas Tornblom.
Fixed signed extension infinite loop in Solaris module.
Moved all the config files to .../config.
Changes from the 1.3.3 release:
Added code from Sun Microsystems, Inc (OPCOM) for Solaris support.
Added support for FreeBSD, mostly changes by Mark Dawson and Julian
All sorts of other stuff.
Changes from the 1.3.1 release:
Added options to psf's filter names to support accounting on HPs.
!!! NOTE: The location of the filters has changed, see the man
page for where.
Added code from Alan Cox to support Linux.
Rewrote papd. Now handles dropped connections better.
Configuration has been modernized. !!! NOTE: The format of the
configuration file has changed, but NOT THE NAME.
Added Kerberos support to papd.
atalkd now removes routes on a SIGTERM. Still can't just restart
it, but it's closer.
Changed atalkd and the kernel driver to remove a hack added to
support sending to 0.255. Now the kernel will allow multiple open
sockets with the same port, so long as the addess associated with
the port is different. atalkd now opens a socket for each port on
atalkd now rewrites its configuration file. If no configuration
file is given, one will be generated. Permissions on the new
configuration file will be inherited from the old one. If there is
no old one, permissions default to 644. Won't rewrite the file if
the owner doesn't have write permission.
Removed support for the "AFS Kerberos UAM", in favor of the
"AuthMan UAM". Kerberos support should now be much more
Fixed a bug in afpd which would cause incorrect group calculations
on ultrix machines.
Fixed a bug in afpd which causes SimpleText and some other
applications to silently fail to write. There's also a bug in
MacOS, but we can't fix that.
Fixed a bad interaction with afpd and AFS which would cause file
writes to not propogate between AFS clients.
!!! CHANGED the name(s) of afpd's config files. The new files are
AppleVolumes.system and AppleVolumes.default. If AppleVolumes.system
exists, it is always read, AppleVolumes.default is only read if the
user has no AppleVolumes file. Included a flag "-u" to indicate
which file has precedence. "-u" user wins, otherwise ".system"
Rewrote the AppleVolumes parsing code. Now works.
Added a filename extension mapping to afpd. User always takes
precedence, regardless of the "-u" flag. Code to change the type
of all Unix files contributed by Kee Hinckley <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
afpd now supports both UFS and AFS volumes simultaneously. It also
uses access() to attempt to calculate reasonable Mac permissions
for AFS directories.
Changed reporting of file times. Files that are written from Unix
now update the Mac's idea of the files modification time. Unix
mtime is now reported instead of ctime.
Added support for a new UAM to afpd. This requires that client
Macs have MacTCP and AuthMan installed. Should make running afpd
for AFS easier.
Removed code so that otherwise valid volumes for which the mounting
user has no permission will appear in the volume selection dialog
on the Mac gray-ed out.
Added code from Chris Metcalf of MIT to the AppleDouble library
which improves permission inheritance.
Added code from G. Paul Ziemba of Alantec, Inc to better report
errors in psf. Also changed psf to use syslog for errors that
users aren't interested in.
Added information to psf's man page to better explain the
interaction between psf, pap, and lpd.
Make psf/pap/psa do accounting when it's turnes on in
Changed pap's error message when there is no printer specified on
the command line and no .paprc is found. Also heavily modified
pap's man page to reflect changes in the "new" version of pap,
including moving it from section 8 to section 1.
Fixed a byte-order bug in pap's sequence numbers. Doubt if pap has
ever worked right on little endian machines!
Added a flag to pap to optionally close before receiving EOF from
the printer. Off by default. psf calls pap with this option on.
Added timeouts to the nbp library calls. This means that processes
won't hang when atalkd dies during boot, thus hanging your
Changes from the 1.3 release:
Fixed a bug in afpd which would cause APPL mappings to contain both
mac and unix path names. The fixed code will handle the old
Fixed a *very* serious bug which would cause files to be corrupted
when copying to afpd.
Fixed a bug in afpd which would cause replies to icon writes to
contain the written icon.
Filled in the function code switch in afpd. Previously, a hacker
could probably have used afpd to get unauthorized access to a
machine running afpd.
Fixed a bug in the asp portion of libatalk.a which could cause the
malloc()/free() database to be corrupted.
Fixed a bug in atalkd's zip query code. With this bug, only the
first N % 255 nets get queried. However, since nets bigger than
255 are usually pretty unstable, the unqueried for nets will
eventually get done, when N drops by one.
Suppressed a spurious error ("route: No such process") in atalkd.
Changes from the 1.2.1 release:
atalkd is completely rewritten for phase 2 support. atalkd.conf
from previous version will not work!
afpd now has better AFS support. In particular, the configuration
for AFS was made much easier; a number of Kerberos-related
byte-ordering and time problems were found; clear-text passwords
were added (thanks to email@example.com).
afpd now handles Unix permissions much better (thanks to
There are many, many more changes, but most are small bug fixes.
Changes from the 1.2 release:
The Sun support now uses loadable kernel modules (a la VDDRV)
instead of binary patches. As such, it should work on any sunos
greater than 4.1, and is confirmed to work under 4.1.1 and 4.1.2.
The DEC support no longer requires source. It also runs under
ultrix 4.1 and 4.2. It still requires patching your kernel, but the
patches are limited to those files available to binary-only sites
-- primarily hooks for things like netatalk.
The etc.rc script now uses changes made to nbprgstr (see below).
aecho now takes machine names on the command line.
nbplkup now takes a command line argument specifying the number of
responses to accept. It also takes its defaults from the NBPLKUP
nbprgstr may be used to register a name at any requested port.
afpd now logs if an illegal shell is used during login, instead of
silently denying service.
A bug in afpd which caused position information for the directory
children of the root of a volume to be ignored has been fixed.
Several typos in afpd which would cause include files necessary to
ultrix to be skipped have been fixed.
atalkd will no long propagate routes to networks whose zone
it doesn't know.
atalkd no longer dumps core if it receives a ZIP GetMyZone request
from a network whose zone it doesn't know. (Since this currently
can only happen from off net, it's not precisely a legal request.)
pap and papd (optionally) no longer check the connection id in PAP
DATA responses. Both also maintain the function code in non-first-packet
PAP DATA responses. These changes are work-arounds to deal with
certain AppleTalk printer cards, notably the BridgePort LocalTalk
card for HP LJIIISIs.
pap no longer sends an EOF response to each PAP SENDDATA request,
only the first.
A bug in papd which would cause it to return a random value when
printing the procset to a piped printer has been fixed.
A bug relating to NBP on reverse-endian machines has been fixed.
atp_rsel() from libatalk now returns a correct value even if it
hasn't recieved anything yet.
atalk_addr() from libatalk no longer accepts addresses in octal
format, since AppleTalk addresses can have leading zeros. Also it
checks that the separator character is a '.'.
Pseudo man pages for nbplkup, nbprgstr, and nbpunrgstr, have been
The example in the psf(8) man page is now correct.
The man pages for changed commands have been updated.
The README files for various machine have been updated
