Smb4K 0.9.4:
- Smb4TDEGlobal::timer() is now deprecated.
- The core classes now use QObject::timerEvent() instead of a connection
to Smb4TDEGlobal::timer().
- Smb4K will try to launch the wallet manager before it opens the wallet.
This should prevent it from hanging on start-up (closes #12707).
- If the digital wallet could not be opened, TDEWallet support won't be
disabled completely anymore but only for the current session.
- Fixed blocking of tooltips in the network browser.
- Fixed invalid check in the network browser's tool tip code.
- Simplified code in smb4k_cat. Bumped version to 0.8.
- Fixed disabled configuration dialog when another user edited the same
system file.
- Fixed wrong path when the strings "cifs" or "smbfs" were part of the
mount point name (closes #13342).
- Fixed unrecognized authentication error when querying the workgroup
master browser for the workgroup members (closes #12830).
- Fixed flickering of items in the shares views.
- Applied patch by Dirk Mueller that installs the configuration dialog as
KDE module.
Smb4K 0.9.3:
- Revised and optimized the code of the password handler. One consequence
is, that the format of the wallet entries is not compatible with previous
versions. The old entries will be converted automatically.
- Fixed a regression in the browser, where the list of shares was not deleted
when an host item was collapsed.
- Fixed an unmount problem that occurred when mount.smbfs is indeed a symlink
to or a copy of mount.cifs.
- The mount command now includes the NetBIOS name of the local host, which
is at least needed when using port 139.
Smb4K 0.9.2:
- Added a few "What's this?" help texts to the "Shares" configuration page.
- Updated translations.
- The preview dialog does not show the "." and ".." directories if the user
chose to see hidden directories.
- The bookmark folder in the system tray widget now has a bookmark folder
- Applied patch provided by Carsten Lohrke so that Smb4K's desktop file
complies with's specifications.
- Fixed double declaration in Smb4KSystemTray class.
- Removed Smb4TDEConfigDialogFactory::setConfigObject() function that was not
- Fixed poor IP address check in Smb4KScanner::searchForHost().
- Fixed saving of default login data when the wallet was closed.
- Updated handbook.
Smb4K 0.9.1
- Replaced all occurences of getenv("USER") by getpwuid(getuid())->pw_name.
- Corrected spelling mistakes in German translation.
- Fixed compilation error under FreeBSD.
- Fixed fails-to-build-from-source bugs with upcoming GCC 4.3.
Smb4K 0.9.0:
- Cleaned up the code and updated the copyright statements (class descriptions,
e-mail address and year).
- Smb4K now uses TDEConfig XT throughout the whole application. This breaks
compatibility with older versions of Smb4K.
- Replaced the old configuration dialog with a new one based on TDEConfigDialog
to take advantange of the TDEConfig XT infrastructure. It is a KDE module
library: libsmb4tdeconfigdialog.
- Added some configuration options:
+ The '-S <arg>' (signing state) and '-P' (use machine account) arguments of
smbclient are now supported.
+ Added several advanced mount.cifs options and the ability to pass custom
options to mount.cifs (closes #10249). You will need Linux kernel >= 2.6.15
to take advantage of most of them.
+ Added the ability to remove all options at once in the "Custom" tab of the
Samba configuration page.
- Changed some configuration options:
+ The hidden files and directories are not displayed in the preview dialog by
+ Rsync's '--existing' and '--ignore-existing' option can be active at the
same time.
+ The default UID and GID are now those of the user.
- Removed obsolete Smb4KUser class.

+ Removed Smb4TDEGlobal::kernelVersion() function.
+ Removed Smb4TDEGlobal::systemName() function.
+ Removed Smb4TDEGlobal::config() function.
+ Removed Smb4TDEGlobal::getUMASK().
- Removed Smb4KHomesShareHandler::convert() function.
- Revised Smb4KCore class:
+ Rewrote Smb4KCore::searchPrograms().
+ Removed Smb4KCore::smb4k_core() static pointer and replaced it with a better
approach (Smb4KCore::self() and static pointers to the core classes).
+ Added Smb4KCore::init() function, that initializes the core, i.e. starts the
scanning of the network and the import and remounting of shares.
- Improved Smb4KSambaOptionsHandler class:
+ The constructor does not take a TDEConfig object anymore.
+ The client charset and server codepage will be auto-detected if the 'unix
charset' and 'dos charset' options are present in smb.conf, respectively
(closes #10805).
- Modified Smb4KShare class:
+ Moved to KUser and KUserGroup to retrieve information about the user and the
group of the mounted share. This sets the minimum requirement to KDE 3.3.
+ Added Smb4KShare::setUID() and Smb4KShare::setGID() functions.
+ Smb4KShare::equals() now takes a constant reference instead of a pointer.
- Improved Smb4KMounter class:
+ Removed legacy code from mountRecent() function and renamed it to remount().
+ Renamed Smb4KMounter::State::MountRecent to Smb4KMounter::State::Remount.
+ Smb4KMounter::findShareByName() now returns a list of all mounts of the
specified share that are present on the system. This way the checks for
mounted shares etc. could be improved.
+ Rewrote Smb4KMounter::mount() function.
+ Cleaned up Smb4KMounter::unmount() and improved the remaining checks.
+ Removed check for correct Linux kernel if the "Force Unmounting" feature is
used. The operating system will throw an error if the wrong kernel is used.
+ Added a new function Smb4KMounter::checkAccessibilty( Smb4KShare *share ).
It replaces code in Smb4KMounter::import() and Smb4KMounter::processMount()
and simplifies maintenance.
+ The "bad user name" and "bad group name" messages that are returned by
mount.cifs if a bad UID/GID are provided are recognized as errors.
+ Improved Smb4KMounter::isMounted(). It takes now a boolean as second argument
that determines whether all or only user mounts should be considered.
- Modified Smb4KScanner class:
+ Removed preview code from class.
+ Improved code for custom search requests.
+ Renamed Smb4KScanner::addHost() function to Smb4KScanner::insertHost() and
improved it.
+ Added hostAdded() signal that is emitted when a single host has been added
via the insertHost() function to the list of known hosts.
- Moved Smb4KMounterPrivate and Smb4KScannerPrivate classes to own files. Now
the users can use the --enable-final configure option without problems.
- Introduced Smb4KPreviewer core class that takes care of previews of remote
- Rewrote Smb4KPreviewItem class and moved it into own files.
- Introduced new Smb4KSynchronizationInfo container class.
- Modified Smb4KSynchronizer class:
+ Replaced the "--devices" option by the "--devices --specials" options, so
that also fifos, etc. can be preserved.
+ Replaced the "--remove-sent-files" option by "--remove-source-files". This
makes rsync 2.6.9 a requirement, if you want to take advantage of this
+ Removed the URL requester and the progress dialog.
+ Added new signals: progress() and finished().
+ Make use of the new Smb4KSynchronizationInfo container class.
+ A new synchronization request won't be taken if one is already processed.
- Modified Smb4KPasswordHandler class:
+ Removed import() function which imported authentication data from old
password file (versions prior to Smb4K 0.6.0).
+ The constructor does not take a TDEConfig object anymore.
+ The descriptive text in the askpass dialog now distinguishes between a
server and a share.

people who need to execute shell scripts on the share.
- Added new shares list view:
+ The features of the new list view are similar to the ones of the icon view.
+ The new list view consists of the classes: Smb4KSharesListViewPart,
Smb4KSharesListView, Smb4KSharesListViewItem and Smb4KSharesListViewToolTip.

+ The network browser is now a KParts KDE module: libsmb4knetworkbrowser.
- Redesigned search dialog:
+ Applied a major revision to the Smb4KSearchDialog class. Among other things,
the widget that shows the search results is now a TDEListView.
+ Introduced new Smb4KSearchDialogItem class for easier handling of the items
in the list view.
+ Introduced Smb4KSearchDialogPart class that manages the communication with
the core and the rest of the application.
+ The search dialog is now a KParts KDE module: libsmb4ksearchdialog. (An rc

(closes #12262).
+ Fixed a bug that could lead to corrupted files.
- Fixed Smb4KPasswordHandler::readDefaultAuth() that returned a pointer that was
freed when the function exited.
- Fixed Smb4KMounter:
+ Smb4K won't consider foreign shares for remounting on start-up. This also
seems to solve the crash bug initially reported in #11973 (closes #11467

using the CIFS file system.
- Improved the 'Trouble Shooting' section of the handbook and bumped its
version to 1.1.2.
Smb4K 0.8.1:
- Rewrote smb4k_mount, smb4k_umount, smb4k_kill, smb4k_cat, and smb4k_mv from
scratch in order to fix the following security weaknesses discovered by
Ben Hutchings (should finally close #9631):
+ Due to insufficient sanitation, smb4k_mount allowed an user to mount any
(local) device if the program was used in combination with sudo or super.
+ The function findprog(), which was present in smb4k_mount, smb4k_umount,
and smb4k_kill, returned a pointer to memory that was freed when the
function exited.
+ The function replace_special_characters(), that was present in smb4k_mount
and smb4k_umount, returned a pointer to memory that was freed after the
function exited. Additionally, it didn't replace the hyphen.
- Changes in smb4k_mount:
+ Moved to getopt_long() to parse the command line options.
+ Added '-n' and '-s' switches (not under FreeBSD) as short forms of the
'--suid' and '--no-suid' arguments, respectively.
+ Added '--version' argument.
+ Out of the many arguments that may be passed to the 'mount' binary, only
'-t <filesystem>' and '-o <options>' are still supported with smb4k_mount.
+ All file systems except 'smbfs' and 'cifs' will result in an error.
+ Fixed order of the arguments that were passed to 'mount.cifs' and
'smbmount' (the '-o <options>' argument must be placed at the end).
+ Added check if a share in the form //HOST/SHARE is supplied. If this is
not the case, smb4k_mount will error out.
+ Improved FreeBSD support.
- Changes in smb4k_umount:
+ Moved to getopt_long() to parse the command line arguments.
+ Added '-n' and '-s' switches (not under FreeBSD) as short forms of the
'--suid' and '--no-suid' arguments, respectively.
+ Added '--version' argument.
+ Added check if a mount point is supplied at all.
+ Improved FreeBSD support.
+ The '--smbfs' and '--cifs' arguments have been deprecated and are now
inoperable. They are still present for backward compatibility, but may be
removed any time soon.
- Changes in smb4k_kill:
+ Moved to getopt_long() to parse the command line arguments.
+ Added '--version' argument.
+ smb4k_kill does not take a signal number anymore. You can only terminate
a process with the SIGTERM signal.
- Changes in smb4k_cat:
+ Moved to getopt_long() to parse the command line arguments.
+ Added '--version' argument.
- Changes in smb4k_mv:
+ Moved to getopt_long() to parse the command line arguments.
+ Added '--version' argument.
+ Added a check if the source and destination files are regular files. If
they are not, smb4k_mv will error out.
- Adjusted Smb4KMounter class to the slightly changed behavior of the utility
+ Removed SIGTERM signal from command line in Smb4KMounter::abort() because
of the changes made to smb4k_kill.
+ Changed the command lines for smb4k_mount and smb4k_umount.
- Started to address the browsing problems experienced by users in Active
Directory environments: If the NT_STATUS_ACCOUNT_DISABLED error is
encountered (which actually seems to be an authentication issue), Smb4K
won't error out anymore but ask the user for the user name and password
(closes #10280).
- Fixed two bugs in Smb4KFileIO:
+ The search for the lock file directory will not return a directory that is
not readable and writeable anymore (except /var and /tmp are mounted ro).
+ If the lock file does not exist when Smb4KFileIO::removeLockFile() wants
to delete it, no error will be shown anymore.
- Fixed a compilation error under SUSE (10.2) and with the upcoming GCC 4.3.
- Smb4K now uses the CIFS file system by default (closes #10804).
- The handbook was updated to reflect the changes made to the utility programs.

+ Added '--with-konqplugin=ARG' argument which allows the user to disable
the compilation of the Konqueror plugin.
+ Added a check for Konqueror plugin header file if '--with-konqplugin=yes'
(default) was supplied. The configuration will be aborted with an error
message if the check fails (closes #8755).
- Updated admin/ directory.
- Utility programs:
+ Removed file search function from smb4k_cat.
+ Exchanged all occurrences of strcpy() by strncpy() (closes #9631).
+ Implemented several other security releated fixes proposed by Kees Cook
after a security audit (closes #9631). They include the elimination of
stack overflows and a design error in smb4k_kill.
- Removed the Smb4KDataItem class again, because its introduction was not a
good idea.
- Revised Smb4KShare:
+ Now references to strings are returned instead of copies of these strings.
+ Smb4KShare::path() and Smb4KShare::canonicalPath() are now QCStrings.
- Made Smb4KUser, Smb4KPrintInfo return references to strings instead of copies
of those strings.

+ Adjusted code to use the new error codes.
+ Improved error messages.
- Revised Smb4TDEGlobal namespace:
+ Moved Smb4KPasswordHandler here.
+ Added Smb4KSambaOptionsHandler.
+ Added Smb4KHomesSharesHandler.
+ Smb4TDEGlobal now provides a function that creates a temporary directory. The
core classes were ported to use it.
- Revised Smb4KMounter class:
+ Optimized code in Smb4KMounter::import().
+ Merged Smb4KMounter::unmount() and Smb4KMounter::forceUnmount() into a more
powerful Smb4KMounter::unmount() function. Accordingly, the public function
forceUnmountingShare() has been removed and replaced by an enhanced version
of unmountShare().
+ Fixed missing port statement in the mount command under FreeBSD.

hosts won't be deleted from the list but only additional info we be added
to existing host items.
+ The constructor now takes a list for workgroups and one for hosts. Both
are provided by Smb4KCore and are used to make all discovered workgroups
and hosts available to the core classes.
+ Replaced Smb4KScanner::authFailed() signal with Smb4KScanner::failed() and
implemented it more places.
+ Revised the shell command for previewing shares.
+ /bin/sh is not required to be present on your system anymore, but you need
a shell that understands the '-c command' option.
- Added update functionality to Smb4KBookmarkHandler class (closes #8832):
+ The constructor now takes a pointer to the global host list provided by
+ Added Smb4KBookmarkHandler::update() which searches the hosts list for
changes of the IP address and updates the bookmarks, if necessary.
- Completely rewrote the Smb4KFileIO class:
+ The automatic conversion of old entries has been dropped now.
+ Implemented several security fixes proposed by Kees Cook after a security

Smb4K 0.7.5:
- Fixed a serious bug in Smb4KFileIO that could cause a corrupted /etc/sudoers
file if debug or error output was received via stderr while reading the file
for subsequent processing. Many thanks go to h-gent-o who reported this
issue to the Ubuntu bug tracker and to Richard Johnson from the Ubuntu
project who brought it to our attention (closes #9527).
Smb4K 0.7.4:
- Fixed error handling in Smb4KMounter::processMount() under FreeBSD.
- Fixed a bug in Smb4KSearchDialog::slotCheckItemInBrowser() that occurred
when a server item had no IP address displayed.
- Fixed a bug in the shell code that was used to retrieve the list of
workgroup/domain members from the master browser. Under certain circum-
stances the bug caused the master browser not to return the browse list.
Please note, that you need the 'sh' command being present now! On most
systems, this is a symlink to a sh-compatible shell, which is fine.
- Improved error handling in Smb4KScanner::processHosts().
- Implemented better error handling in Smb4KSynchronizer: The synchronization
is canceled if an error occurrs. This prevents the user from being flooded
with error dialogs.
- Fixed disabled "Linux charset" and "Server codepage" combo boxes in the
configuration dialog under operating systems different from Linux.
- Fixed a bug that occurred when reading or writing the file and directory
- Changed the address used for reporting bugs via Help->Report Bugs.

(closes #8325).
- Fixed insertion of a host from the search dialog to the browser window
when the host has no IP address displayed.
- Added missing error code to Smb4TDEGlobal::showCoreError().
- The preview dialog won't accept the contents of a wrong address anymore.
- The wallet will be reopened if it was closed by the user, the screensaver,
etc. (closes #8558).

- Fixed compilation error(s) in smb4k_umount.cpp under Solaris (closes #4419,
- Updated translations.
- Updated handbook. However, it's still work-in-progress.
- Introduced the possibility to modify the length of the interval between
checks for external mounts/umounts and dead shares. This is especially
useful on systems with many mounted shares and/or to reduce the load
on remote servers (closes #6907).
- The timer will be disconnected from Smb4KScanner::start() if the scanner
is idle (closes #6907). This drastically reduces the CPU load!
- Fixed input validation when using smbclient for searching (closes #7429).
- Fixed a bug that prevented the correct saving of updated authentication
- Fixed smb4k.desktop file.
- Removed two queries for a non-existent config entry. So, using Kerberos
with smbclient works again and the domain is included in the argument
string for nmblookup.
- Made the synchronization progress dialog work correctly with the latest
version of rsync.
- Fixed broken translation in the Konqueror plugin.
- Fixed a crash in the network browser's tooltip code.
- Fixed several small issues in Smb4KFileIO.
Smb4K 0.7.0:
- KonqSidebar_Smb4K: hang up the new alreadyMountedShare signal from mounter.
No error dialogs of "already been mounted share" anymore (partially
closes #5636).
- The old tab widget in the main window has been removed.
- Added shortcuts to the main window that allow jumping to each dock widget:
CTRL+1: Network Browser, CTRL+2/CTRL+S: Search Dialog, CTRL+3: Shares View.
- Unified look of dialogs.
- Did a major revision of the browser widget (GUI):
+ Introduced tooltips that carry information about the network item
underneath the mouse pointer.
+ The master browser will be displayed with blue color.
+ The popup menu has the highlighted network item as title.
+ Improved the "Rescan" action. If you open the popup menu, the selected
workgroup or server will be scanned. If you use the rescan action on
the empty viewport or from the toolbar/menu, the old behavior will
be preserved.
+ Moved "Mount Manually" action here.
+ Removed obsolete "This computer is already in the list." error
message box.
- Did a major revision of the search dialog (GUI):
+ Redesigned the widget and made it a stand-alone dock widget.
+ Hosts can be added by simply double clicking them (closes #2247).
+ A host that is already in the browse list is underlaid with the
"button_ok" pixmap. This makes the "This computer is already in the
list." message box obsolete (see above).
- Did several changes to the shares view (GUI):
+ The popup menu has the share name as title.
+ Introduced tooltips that carry the information about the mounted
+ Replaced the old icon for broken shares by a a new combined icon
(mounted hard drive overlayed by a semi-transparent cancel icon).
+ The item width of the share icons has been enlarged to 500 pixels in
list mode.
- The bookmark editor allows editing of the IP address and workgroup.
- Put Smb4KShareWidgetItem class in own files.
- Removed obsolete options "This master browser needs authentication" and
"Use authentication when querying the workgroup master browsers" from
the configuration dialog.
- When closing the configuration dialog, the root password is only asked,
if the user changed one of the super user options (partially closes #5636).
- The removal of the super user entries from and/or sudoers is
now determined by the choice in the configuration dialog.
- Rewrote Smb4KSharesMenuWidget class.
- Added new Smb4KShareActionMenu and Smb4KBrowserActionMenu classes. They
contain the actions that were defined in Smb4KShareWidget and
Smb4KBrowserWidget before,respectively. The use of Smb4KShareActionMenu in
the system tray icon closes #5622.
- Replaced deprecated KStdActions.
- Introduced new Smb4KDataItem container for the core classes.
- Revised bookmark handling:
+ The bookmark handler does not use TDEConfig anymore but has its own read
and write functions. Thus, you won't be able to read the bookmark file
with prior versions once you ran Smb4K 0.7.0.
+ The bookmarks are now stored with workgroup/domain and IP address (closes
- The scanner class underwent a major revision:
+ The net command now replaces most of the smbclient command lines. This
substantially simplifies the code and also seems to speed up the
look-up processes. As a consequence, however, the support of Samba 2.2
has been dropped.
+ Implemented list of all discovered hosts in Smb4KScanner. This significantly
reduces the network traffic.
+ Moved IP address look-up code to the scanner (and thus removed Smb4KIPFinder
+ Introduced a "background process" which processes the IP address look-up
and the gathering of additional information (OS and server string).
+ An automatic rescan using the RAP protocol will be initiated if the query
for the shares of a certain host failed because of the wrong protocol
(closes #4417).
+ Added possibility to query the current workgroup master browser to
retrieve the browse list.
- Massively changed the entries and groups in the configuration file.
As consequence, Smb4K will be incompatible with prior versions.
- Added ability to synchronize a local copy with a remote share and vice
versa (closes #1940). This feature uses Rsync. A few of the many options
have been stripped, because they are used for transfer from remote hosts,
which is no the case here.
- Information of any share will now be collected by the mounter. Smb4KCore
has been tidied up accordingly. Information of the number of files and
directories has been dropped (for now).
- Removed Catalan, Norwegian Nynorsk, Chinese Traditional (zh_TW) and
Simplified (zh_CN), Russian and Polish translation because they were
unmaintained and hopelessly out-dated.
- Removed the Smb4KShellIO class, because its only purpose was to provide
the Samba version. This is not necessary anymore, because we switched
to Samba 3.
- Introduced smb4k_cat and smb4k_mv utilities to read and copy/move system
config files.
- The handbook shipping with this release actually contains useful information.
However, it is still work in progress. The license of the handbook has been
changed from GFDL to GPL.
- If a user tries to mount an already mounted share, no error message will
be displayed anymore.
- Renamed the global namespace to Smb4TDEGlobal and several functions inside.
- Centralized the application's timer in the Smb4TDEGlobal namespace. As a
side effect, this seems to fix the very-fast-vanishing-tooltips problem.
- If the user canceled the writing to /etc/ or /etc/sudoers, the
previous state will be re-established.
- Removed "Specify User" dialog from Smb4KBrowserWidget and moved it to
Smb4TDEGlobal namespace. Now only core classes are using it.
- Reworked and cleaned up Linux specific code in Smb4KMounter::import().
- Moved error handling to Smb4TDEGlobal namespace. The reason is, that the
previous signal/slot model was not able to handle errors during the
initialization of the core.
- Removed Smb4KPasswordHandler::AskPass class and integrated its functionality
into Smb4KPasswordHandler::askpass(). This should fix the compilation errors
encountered when using MIPSpro Compilers on IRIX/MIPS (closes #6811).
- When reading the smb.conf file, a line beginning with a semicolon is valued
as comment.
- Reduced CPU load by stretching the interval between checks for externally
mounted and broken shares from 1000 ms to 2500 ms.
Smb4K 0.6.10:
- Fixed a bug in smb4k_umount that did not allow the unmounting of a share
when the mount point was quoted.
- Fixed a bug in smb4k_umount that did not allow the unmounting of a broken
- [Patch 0.6.10a] Fixed input validation when using smbclient for searching
(backport from 0.7 branch, closes #7429).
- [Patch 0.6.10a] Fixed broken translations in Konqueror plugin.
- [Patch 0.6.10a] Updated admin directory for autoconf 2.60 support.
- [Patch 0.6.10a] Fixed removal of temporary files after printing.
- [Patch 0.6.10a] Fixed smb4k.desktop file.

- [Patch 0.6.10a] Fixed occurrence of annoying error dialog on start-up when
a share had already been mounted.
- [Patch 0.6.10a] Fixed a potential crash in Smb4KBrowserWidget::insertItem().

address anymore.
Smb4K 0.6.9:
- Integrated startup fix for Samba 2.2 users by Chris Clayton and extented it.
- Updated French and Czech translation.
- The "Remove Entries" button in the "Super User" configuration tab will now
be disabled together with the "Apply" and "OK" button if Smb4K writes to a
system configuration file.
Smb4K 0.6.8:
- Fixed another bug in the bookmark menu widget. It will again be properly
updated during run time, when bookmarks are added or removed.
- Fixed enabling of "Authentication" action in browser widget.
- Fixed a crash (NULL pointer access) in Smb4KShareWidget::slotMountedShares(),
that was found by Glen Masgai, who also sent the patch.
- Added support of mount.cifs and umount.cifs. This should enable users to
mount CIFS shares as normal user depending on the configuration of the
system and on the presence of these two utilities. NOTE: You have to set the
setuid root bit for both binaries.
- Revised start-up: Smb4K will run on systems where either only smbmount/
smbumount or mount.cifs/umount.cifs are present.
Smb4K 0.6.7:
- Fixed a crash in Smb4KBookmarkMenuWidget::insertBookmarks(), that was
introduces by the "fix" in 0.6.6.
- Updated Turkish translation.
Smb4K 0.6.6:
- Fixed too small buffer size in Smb4KUser on systems with many users and
groups (closes #6070).
- Fixed crash in Smb4KNetworkTab::slotKilled() (closes #3125).
- Fixed these issues found by Marc Hansen (Thanks!):
+ crash in Smb4KBrowserWidget::slotMembers()
+ searching for illegal strings such as #, ', () shows search command
as search result
+ the application might crash if you press "Apply" and "OK" successively
in the configuration dialog and system files have to be written (As
consequence, the OK and the Apply button will be disabled while the
configuration is written to disk.)
+ shares are displayed although the user has to supply a password
+ printer shares are displayed although they are disabled in the
configuration dialog
+ crash in Smb4KBookmarkMenuWidget::insertBookmarks() (closes #6146)
+ unusable entries were written when the user bookmarked a 'homes' share
without providing a user name
- Fixed the broken writing to the configuration file and the popping up
of multiple information dialogs in Smb4KPasswordHandler.
Smb4K 0.6.5:
- Fixed writing to ~/.nsmbrc file under FreeBSD.
- Fixed freezing of Smb4K when a share went offline (closes #3676). Smb4K
will lock-up for a short amount of time if it encounters a broken share
and will then continue its work without any problems.
- Fixed the generation of wrong file permissions for /etc/sudoers and
/etc/, respectively. The permissions are no longer hard coded,
but the stat() system call is used to read the original permissions that
will then be preserved.
- Introduced global TDEConfig object and ported all classes to use it.
- Fixed login problem when trying to preview a WinXP share or similar.
- Added support of the 'include' directive in the smb.conf file (closes
#5948). NOTE: The file that is to be included *must* be given with its
full path!
- Moved from getgrgid() to getgrgid_r() in Smb4KUser. This should close the
"Smb4KUser: Could not get group name!" issue also known as #4914.
- KonqSidebar_Smb4K: switched to global config system. Now parameters changed
from the option dialog have effect into the konqueror plugin.
- Executing a network item in the browser by clicking its name (not the [+])
will show/hide its contents (closes #3352).
Smb4K 0.6.4:
- REALLY fixed the security issues in Smb4KFileIO. Now, temporary files
and directories are used to copy and modify sensitive data and the lock
file is checked to be not a symlink.
- Fixed unmount-all-shares-on-exit functionality, that was broken due to
changes that were applied to the smb4k_umount utility program in earlier
versions of Smb4K.
- Fixed forced unmounting of shares.
- Fixed running progress bar after you denied the forced unmounting of a
- Fixed missing exit( EXIT_FAILURE ) statement in smb4k_umount utility.
- Fixed several memory leaks.
- Fixed compilation error under FreeBSD.
- The PASSWD environment variable will be preserved when the 'env_reset'
flag has been set in /etc/sudoers (closes #4945). The user needs to
rewrite the entries, though. See FAQ for details.
Smb4K 0.6.3:
- Fixed security issue: An attacker could get access to the full contents
of the /etc/ or /etc/sudoers file by linking a simple text file
FILE to /tmp/smb4k.tmp and /tmp/sudoers, respectively, because Smb4K didn't
check for the existance of these files before writing any contents. When
using super, the attack also resulted in /etc/ being a symlink to
- Included three patches by Montel Laurent, that
+ add moc file inclusion to the bookmark editor,
+ fix a memory leak in the Konqueror plugin,
+ fix ./smb4k/,
+ disable the OK button of the mount dialog if the input line is empty.
Smb4K 0.6.2:
- Fixed security issue: When ignoring the tdesu dialog a copy of the file was left under /tmp.
- Error messages won't pop up anymore when ignoring the tdesu dialog. The
reporting of unknown errors has been disabled in
Smb4KFileIO::slotReceivedStderr() (closes #4309).
- Fixed reading of authentication data.
- Removed check for mount.smbfs (under Linux) which is actually needless
because it is either a symlink to smbmount or nonexistent.
- Updated ./admin directory. Smb4K now needs automake 1.9.
- Fixed command line for mount.cifs (closes #4854). The 'domain' instead
of the 'workgroup' option is used.
- Fixed crash when the user clicked the "Show search dialog" action and the
tab group widget wasn't shown.
Smb4K 0.6.1:
- Improved lock file handling (closes #4310). Now the editing of a system
file is only denied, if another instance of Smb4K (i. e. another user)
is modifying the same system file. Additionally, the lock file will now
be removed (or processed), if the application emits the shutDown() signal.
- Fixed a bug in the code that removes the entries from the sudoers file.
- Fixed wrong assignment of RAP protocol config entry to RPC radio button
in configuration dialog.
- Moved to QString::compare() to compare strings, because "==" caused
crashes under certain circumstances (closes #3604).
- The wallet won't be opened on start-up but when a password is actually
Smb4K 0.6.0:
- Rewrote password handling: Added TDEWallet support as default method
(closes #3695). If you do not want to use TDEWallet, login information
won't be saved but only stored temporarily. There is also the possibility
to deny the password storage altogether.
ATTENTION: If you deny access to the wallet on the first start-up, all
passwords stored in the passwords file will be lost!
- Improved FreeBSD support. The passwords will now be stored encrypted in
the ~/.nsmbrc file.
- Added Dutch translation.
- Put the core and (most of) the widget classes into shared libraries.
- The DNS won't be queried anymore when doing an IP lookup.
- Added Konqueror plugin by Massimo Callegari (closes #2731). An installation
of KDE Base is necessary to make it compile.
- Moved to default KDE icons for the network items.
- Added support of the 'net' command (closes #2227). This adds the advantage
of the ADS and RPC protocol being used and even very large share names will
be displayed. Additionally, it seems to significantly speed up the lookup
process. Smb4K will automatically use the 'net' command if found on the
There is a disadvantage though: A valid login and password are necessary
to logon to a server. If neither is known, Smb4K will try to authenticate
with the 'guest' user and an empty password. This will work with (almost
all) Windows machines and with Samba servers that have set the security
option to SHARE. For all others you will have to provide a login and
- Added namespace Smb4K_Global which contains functions used by several
- Improved TDEAction handling in popup menus.
- Added a patch by Nuts Mueller that adds /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin
to the paths that are searched by the utility programs.

opening a workgroup (closes #3351). Thanks go to Nuts Mueller who helped
me finding the problem.
- Implemented 'iocharset' option for CIFS mounts (closes #4071).
- Fixed mounting of CIFS shares. The file_mode and dir_mode options were not
provided in octal which resulted in broken mounts that could not be accessed.
- Fixed the "probably not smb-filesystem" issue (closes #1837).
Smb4K 0.5.2:

shown with KDE <= 3.3.92. Thanks go to Stefan Gehn (aka mETz) who send a
- Fixed compilation errors under FreeBSD.
- Improved printing by switching to smbspool.
Smb4K 0.5.1:
- Reduced CPU load by using QDir::isReadable() and QDir::exists() instead
of QDir::entryList() to determine if a share is broken and by increasing
the check interval for external mounts/unmounts.
- Fixed crash that occurred when trying to forcibly unmount a (broken)
share (should close #3029).
- Fixed mandatory password input for browsing (unprotected) WinXP shares.
- Added patch #303 by Ian Abbott that fixes the failure of smb4k_mount,
smb4k_umount and smb4k_kill in the case the user does not have read
access to mount/umount/smbmount/smbumount/kill (closes #3094).
- Updated French translation.
- Added Chinese (Taiwan) translation. Thanks go to Jack Liu.

- Removed Smb4KStarter class and distributed its duties to the Smb4KCore
class and the main() function.
- Added support of sudo (closes #2222).
- Added support of the CIFS file system (closes #1874). Samba 3 is required.
- Introduced smb4k_mount, smb4k_umount, and smb4k_kill utilities and ported
classes to use them. This fixes several security concerns regarding the
use of mount and umount with super (and sudo).
- Closed several memory leaks.
- Replaced the QSplitters in the main window by KDockWidgets. Now, you can
move the network browser and tab widget around or even detach them.
- Removed the Smb4KView class.
- Moved to nice TDEActionMenus. This included a complete rewrite of the
Smb4KSystemTray and Smb4KBookmarkMenuWidget classes (closes #2007).
- Mounted shares are optically advertized in the browser widget.
- If the mountpoint can't be created, an error message will be emitted and
the mounter will exit.
- Every mountpoint within the mount prefix will automatically be removed
after the share was unmounted. This made the "Clean up default directory
on exit." option obsolete.
- Share names containing blanks are fully supported. LIMITATION: If Smb4K
cannot figure out, that the share contains a blank instead of an
underscore, the latter one will be shown.
- Removed the readOptions() functions from the core classes. Options are
now read when they are needed (i.e. at the beginning of a function).
- Changed the format of the entries in the file. It's not
compatible with the old one and will be converted on the first program
- Revised Smb4KBookmarkHandler class and moved the bookmark editor to its
own class.
- Disk usage information is now provided by the statvfs() system call.
*** Program freezes may still happen if the network connection is bad or
the share vanishes. Help is wanted to fix this issue! ***
- Improved Smb4KShareWidgetItem class and cleaned up Smb4KShareWidget class.
- Added Czech and Turkish translations. Thanks go to Alois Nespor and G�kem

Privileges" options there.
- Reorganized and cleaned up the configuration file.

no longer reported as existent.
- Added the ability to mount shares manually (closes #1640, #2546).
- Redesigned the askpass dialog and added information why it is shown
(closes #2226).

selection (closes #2962).
- Enhanced source code documentation.
- Broken shares (i.e. empty CDROM shares, etc.) are marked as such and the
user will only be able to unmount them. No other actions may be performed.
(closes #2998, #3000)
REMARK: This feature does not include shares that got unavailable due to
the shut-down of a server. This issue is still NOT solved.
Smb4K 0.4.1a:
- Fixed severe bug in Smb4KMounter::unmountAll(), which led under certain
circumstances to complete data loss on remote shares. Thanks go to Jeremy

- Added Japanese, Bulgarian and Norwegian translations. Thanks go to Toyohiro
Asukai, Atanas Mavrov and Nils Kristian Tomren for providing them.
- Removed abandoned Russian and Catalan translations.
- Added several codepages (closes #2094).

that are not connected to mounting and unmounting of shares and network
operations. Moved Smb4KShareTab's shell operations there.
- Printer shares are shown by default.
- Changed default behavior if a WINS server was found: The network instead
of the WINS will be queried to get the browse list.
