SSHFS is not meant to replace things such as NFS, AFP, and SMB - it is meant to be a substitute when you do not have any remote file sharing access to a computer, but you do have SFTP access. When you use SSHFS, from the server's standpoint, you are just accessing it using SFTP. It is not as if the server is going to notify an SSHFS client of modifications by other clients.
What is new in this release:
- Add -o disable_hardlink option (debian bug #670926). Reported
by Louis-David Mitterrand
- Optimize readdir by sending multiple requests in parallel. Add -o sync_readdir to restore old behavior. Patch by Alexander Neumann
- Map SSH2_FX_FAILURE to ENOTEMPTY for rmdir. Reported by Ross Lagerwall
- When checking root directory use LSTAT not STAT. This prevents I/O error being returned after a successful mount if a symlink is mounted. Reported by Bart Friederichs
