Coda-6.0.14 is available for download.

Sources, Fedora Core 2 rpms and Debian packages can be found at

Although 6.0.13 has been on ftp for a few days, it wasn't announced and
I decided to fix one particular bug (packing CML remove operations) in
a way that the server least tries to do a halfway decent job when we
receive bad data from an older client.

RVM layout has been unchanged so reintialization is not necessary.
However the CML_Remove opcode changed, so make sure you reintegrate
before upgrading.

Overview of the changes
- Updated createvol_rep.8 manpage.
- Do not allow normal users to create or remove mountlinks.
- Found a serious bug when packing CML_Remove operations.
    We corrupted the version vector and truncated the name when
    reintegrating an unlink operation. It also made it impossible to
    correctly unpack the operation when it was sent from a client with a
    different CPU endianess. This bug has been around since Coda-5.3.16.
- Only enforce yellow zone/red zone limits while write-disconnected.
- Move vcodacon to a separate coda-vcodacon package, this removes the
  unnecessary X11/fltk dependency for the coda-client package.
- 'codadump2tar -rn <root>' now works.
- Attempt to fix up RPM dependencies

The coda-debug-vcodacon rpm for Fedora Core 2 was built against the fltk
RPMs that were obtained from,
