29-June-2020 - OpenAFS 1.8.6 - Maintenance release for UNIX/Linux

OpenAFS 1.8.6 is the next in the current stable series of OpenAFS releases for UNIX/Linux systems. It brings performance improvements, improved diagnostics, support for the latest Linux mainline kernel (currently 5.7) and macOS 10.15 "Catalina", and a number of bug fixes.

Note that aklog and klog.krb5 will now require the -insecure_des switch in order to work with the weak and deprecated single-DES encryption types.

To build this release with GCC 10, the parameter "-fcommon" has to be passed to the compiler, which can be achieved by setting the environment variable CFLAGS to -fcommon when running configure: "CFLAGS=-fcommon ./configure".
