[ANNOUNCE] autofs 5.1.9 release

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all,

A release is long overdue so here it is, autofs-5.1.9.

There are quite a lot of changes in the release but they are mostly
bug fixes arising from a number significant improvements done over
the last several releases.

Some general performance overheads have crept in over quite a while
and work has been done to improve on it but once the obvious is done
it gets much harder to improve, so that's ongoing as time permits.


The package can be found at:

It is autofs-5.1.9.tar.[gz|xz]

No source rpm is there as it can be produced by using:

rpmbuild -ts autofs-5.1.9.tar.gz

and the binary rpm by using:

rpmbuild -tb autofs-5.1.9.tar.gz
