OpenAFS 1.3.63 is now available for download from the openafs.org web

For Windows, 1.3.63 represents the currently supported client. We
recommend upgrading from previous releases if you are having problems
or wish to experiment with hosting an AFS Cell on Windows.
Major changes since 1.3.62 include:
 * AFS Server functionality is now working (do not use in production
 * Kerberos 5 support (requires MIT KFW 2.6) no longer uses krb524d
 * Maximum ticket size increased to 12,000 bytes
 * Daylight Savings Time offset bug fixed
 * \\afs\cell-alias bug fixed.  This bug corrupted the internal cell table
   was responsible for apparent lost or corrupted tokens
 * The AFS Shell Extension no longer is missing strings
 * The release has been compiled with MSVC 6.0 instead of MSVS .NET 2003
   to avoid the crash on shutdown errors
Please read afs-changes-since-1.2.txt for complete details.

For Unix, 1.3.63 includes several enhancements which have not yet appeared in
stable OpenAFS releases, however, some of these have not yet been
heavily tested. Accordingly, this release should be treated as an unstable
development release and not run in an environment where you'd be unwilling
to potentially discover and help us track bugs.
