@jetwhiz jetwhiz released this Jan 27, 2020

Note: This is a beta release -- we ask that you test to ensure everything works properly for your setup!

This version is based on the following software:

Fixed

  • Issue "EncFS GUI should create config for case-insensitive file system on Windows. #135" fixed

Known Issues

  • Symbolic links are not yet supported inside encfs container (FUSE support needed -- see dokan-dev/dokany#343)
  • Buggy behavior when encfs isn't mounted to a drive letter (e.g., Z:) (issue #51)
    • Reparse points cause Windows/Dokany to convert filenames to all uppercase (see Dokany-issue #293)
    • This same issue applies to directory symbolic links and directory junctions, so avoid using them with encfs for now!
  • UTF-8 filesystem encodings not handled correctly in encfs and encfsctl (issue #79, #92, #94)
    • Thai/CJK multi-byte encodings not supported (issue #55 and #94)

Dokan Legacy vs. Dokany Modern

Dokan v0.7.4 (legacy) is based on the original, abandoned Dokan project with various bug fixes and modernizations. Dokany v1.x (modern) is a significant rewrite designed for improved support on newer operating systems (e.g., Windows 10).

The legacy version is provided for those who prefer to use the original code-base, though it is recommended that users choose the modern release since it is still being actively maintained.
