editor's review

It is really tough to find some fileservers that can take plenty of our requests to store the files. Today we might have several of the online documents that are maintained with respect to a single project and hence we need the best way of tracking and maintaining them. Finding the open source that does the AFP fileserver activities is quite important and one such software that you can find easily and working effectively is the Netatalk 2.2 Beta 3 that can work simply superb with the added features. It has the capability to provide kernel level implementation for AppleTalk protocol Suite that is available in the market and for which is very fond of.

As with any software that is released into the market there would always be the version releases happenings that would eventually lead to the big time hit for each single version as when the bugs or problems encountered by the customers in the previous releases are fixed the customers tend to stick to the same software over time and thus become regular customers in using this software. With the versions that are released this software has become even more stable than the first version and hence would keep you busy in trying the options available with it.

linux default iconNetatalk Publisher's description

Netatalk is a freely-available Open Source AFP fileserver.

Netatalk is a freely-available Open Source AFP fileserver. It also provides a kernel level implementation of the AppleTalk Protocol Suite. A *NIX/*BSD system running Netatalk is capable of serving many Macintosh clients simultaneously as an AppleShare file server (AFP), AppleTalk router, *NIX/*BSD print server, and for accessing AppleTalk printers via Printer Access Protocol (PAP). Included are a number of minor printing and debugging utilities.

What's New in This Release:

В· NEW: afpd: disable continous service feature by default, new option -keepsessions to enable it
В· NEW: configure option "--enable-redhat-systemd" for Fedora15 and later. "--enable-redhat" is renamed "--enable-redhat-sysv".
В· UPD: afpd: Enhance ACL support detection for volumes: enable them per volume if 1) ACL support compiled in, 2) the volume supports ACLs, 3) the new volume option "noacls" is not set for the volume. The previous behaviour was to enable ACL support for a volume if 1) it was compiled in and 2) the volume supported ACLs. There was no way to disable ACLs for a volume.
В· UPD: afpd: add a configurable hold time option to FCE file modification event generation, default is 60 s, new option "fceholdfmod" to change it

В· FIX: afpd: fix undefined behaviour when more then ~510 connetions where established
В· FIX: afpd: fix a crash when searching for a UUID that is not a special local UUID and LDAP support is not compiled in
В· FIX: afpd: .volinfo file not created on first volume access if user in rolist
В· FIX: afpd: possible crash at startup when registering with Avahi when Avahi is not running
В· FIX: afpd: return correct user/group type when mapping UUIDs to names
В· FIX: afpd: for directories add DARWIN_ACE_DELETE ACE if DARWIN_ACE_ADD_SUBDIRECTORY is set
В· FIX: afpd: afpd crashed when it failed to register with Avahi because eg user service registration is disabled in the Avahi config
В· FIX: dbd: function checking and removing malformed ad:ea header files failed to chdir back to the original working directory
В· FIX: cnid_dbd: increase BerkeleyDB locks and lockobjs
В· FIX: cnid_dbd: implement -d option, deletes CNID db
В· FIX: dbd: better detection of local (or SMB/NFS) modifications on AFP volumes
В· FIX: suse: initscript return better status
В· FIX: Sourcecode distribution: add missing headers
В· FIX: Solaris 10: missing dirfd replacement function
В· FIX: case-conversion of surrogate pair
