OpenAFS is the next in the current series of stable releases
of OpenAFS. This minor release only affects the clients for AIX and
certain Linux kernels. In particular, it brings support for mainline
kernels from 3.11 up to at least 3.12-rc4, can be built against kernels
without keyring support, and brings a number of fixes relevant to users
of certain enterprise distributions. Please consult the release notes
for details. If you are unaffected by these issues, you can stick with
1.6.5 until 1.6.6 is released.

Binaries are only provided for Fedora 19 at the time of release.
Additional ones for other affected platforms will be added as they
become available.

Bug reports should be filed to openafs-bugs@openafs.org.

1.6 releases are no longer targeting MS Windows.
