OpenAFS 1.6.6 is the next in the current series of stable releases
of OpenAFS for all platforms except Microsoft Windows. Important
changes include:

* Support for Linux kernels at least up to 3.13
* including kernels with CONFIG_USER_NS enabled, becoming common
* New "fs flushall" command, previously only available on Windows
* New switch for the cache manager to limit UDP fragmentation
* Improved documentation, diagnostics and error messages
* Dozens of bug fixes and other improvements of both client and server

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

Thanks are due as usual to our dedicated team of binary builders
(Andrew Deason, Ben Kaduk, Christof Hanke, Ken Hornstein and Stephen
Quinney), without whom the broad range of released binaries would not
be possible.
