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

This release mainly brings client support for Linux mainline kernel 4.9
and distribution kernels with backports from it, as well as support for
macOS 10.12 "Sierra". It also fixes a few build time warnings with recent
compilers, a crash in the macOS preference pane, and the openafs-client
systemd unit file for the case where only kernel threads remain after the
client has started.

Systems not affected by these changes can continue to use the 1.6.20 release.

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