  • New file change notify subsystem which is able to make use of
    inotify on Linux.
  • Support for passing Windows security descriptors to a VFS
    plug-in allowing for multiple Unix ACL implements to running side
    by side on the Same server.
  • Improved compatibility with Windows Vista clients.
  • Man pages for VFS plugins.
