OpenAFS 1.7.30 is the next a series of OpenAFS clients for the Microsoft
Windows platform that is implemented as a native file system.
Significant changes since 1.7.29:

 * Performance improvements:
   . Cache file server uuid to address mappings to avoid
     redundant VLDB RPCs.
 * Modify Advanced Firewall Registration module to support cache
   manager ports other than 7001/udp.
 * Fix afsd_service.exe crash if VL replies service replies
 * Revert use of secure MUP registration on XP as it prevents access
   by limited users
 * Fix afsd_service.exe race condition that can under rare conditions
   result in invalid server to cell bindings.

1.7.30 is the recommended release of OpenAFS for Microsoft Windows
users. It supports Microsoft Windows client operating systems from
Windows XP SP3 through Windows 8.1 and Windows Server operating
systems from 2003 SP2 through 2012 R2.  The 1.7.30 Windows client is
fully compatible with all AFS server versions.

For UNIX, Linux, and MacOS X the recommended production-ready release of
OpenAFS is 1.6.6.
