• “Because we couldn't tolerate the others. Allegro NFS.”

Previous Release History

  • Version 5.1, 1 Aug, 2011:
    • performance and stability improvements
    • new: toggling of response to showmount requests.
    • new: configurable log rotation. Defaults to previous behavior.
    • new: directory and file caching duration is now configurable.
    • fix: interoperability fixes with VMware ESXi.
    • fix: hanging of the server and 100% cpu usage problems are removed.
    • fix: moving the error log into the install directory.
    • fix: proper locking around exports and logging operations.
  • Version 5.0, 25 February, 2010:
    • Performance improvements
    • Improved support for Windows Vista/7
    • New: support for symbolic links
    • New: support for international filenames (UTF-8)
    • New: support for mount protocol version 2
    • New: notification app separate from service that shows log information
    • New: NLM and NSM debug options
    • New: added date to timestamp logging
    • New: option "Set file modification time after every write" allows users to work around inconvenient Window behavior with respect to file modification times. (Normally Windows does not update the mtime on a file until the file is closed. Since Allegro NFS keeps a file open while it is actively being written-to, a Windows program periodically checking the mtime of the file will not be able to tell that the file is actually being modified until the file is closed.) Using this option updates the modification time after every write. As a result there is a performance penalty of 10% and this option is disabled by default.
