This is an announcement about the end of life process for the OpenAFS
1.4 series.

OpenAFS 1.6.0 was released in September 2011, and since that time, the
OpenAFS community has focused on pushing the 1.6 series forward. The
OpenAFS project now considers 1.6 superior in terms of stability and
reliability for every AFS user and administrator.

Effective immediately, there will be no new tarball releases of 1.4.

For any future security updates to 1.4, the OpenAFS project will only
provide individual source-code patches. After May 4th, 2014, no
security patches will be issued for 1.4.

We encourage all sites to upgrade to the OpenAFS 1.6 series.
