The OpenAFS Release Team is pleased to announce that the first 1.6.16
release candidate, 1.6.16pre1, is now available.

Source files and available binaries can be accessed via the web at:


or via AFS at:

  UNIX: /afs/grand.central.org/software/openafs/candidate/1.6.16pre1/
  UNC: \\afs\grand.central.org\software\openafs\candidate\1.6.16pre1\

There are no binaries yet. Those will be uploaded as they become available.

This prerelease fixes a wide range of bugs, brings a new "vos remaddrs"
subcommand to replace the slightly confusing "vos changeaddr -remove"
and provides a configure switch to disable building gtx, which may be
necessary due to incompatibilities with newer ncurses libraries.

For the full list of user visible changes foreseen for 1.6.16, please see


Please assist us by deploying this prerelease and providing positive or
negative feedback. Bug reports should be filed to openafs-bugs@openafs.org .
Reports of success should be sent to openafs-info@openafs.org .
