Version 5.0, 25 February, 2010:
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
Improvements to hard link support
Better compatibility between UNIX and Windows-style locking
Improved interoperatibility with several UNIX clients
