The OpenAFS Release Team is pleased to announce the availability of
OpenAFS version  Source files and available binaries can be
accessed via the web at:


or via AFS at:


OpenAFS is the next in the current series of stable releases
of OpenAFS. This minor release only affects the clients for OS X and
certain Linux kernels. In particular, it brings support for OS X 10.9
"Mavericks", a fix for panics of the RHEL 6.5 kernel with syscall
auditing enabled, and a fix for using tmpfs as the cache filesystem
which was broken since Linux 3.1. If you are unaffected by these issues,
you can stick with 1.6.5 or until 1.6.6 is released.

No binaries are provided at the time of release, but they 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.
