    MSDN Release Notes — December 2008

    This release includes document changes made since the previous release. A major change for this release is the addition of new protocol documents for Windows 7 Beta 1. This release also contains a new version of [MS-SMB2]: Server Message Block (SMB) Version 2 Protocol Specification.

    Issues specific to the December release include:

    1. References to [MS-SMB2] are not consistent in the document set with respect to identifying the version of the protocol. All references will be changed from Version 2.0 to Version 2 for the January release.

    2. Links to [MS-SMB] and [MS-SMB2] do not work in certain specific contexts—for example, when they appear in [MS-REF] or in Section 1.2 References within some protocol specifications. The January release will contain working links.

    The following known issues exist in the December Release:

        1. Underscore characters are not always visible in code in the PDF files depending on the magnification selected by the user. Those characters are present in printed versions.
        2. Information in a table row may split across two pages.
        3. Table borders are not always visible depending upon the magnification selected by the user. Borders are present in printed versions of the PDF.
        4. Cross-protocol links are only functional when the PDF files for the protocols are in the same folder.

    Note: Links in the PDFs don’t resolve in Adobe Reader 9 because Adobe has changed the default setting for view mode in Adobe Reader 9. To access links, perform the following procedure:

    1. In Adobe Reader 9, go to the Edit menu and click Preferences.
    2. In the Categories list, click Documents.
    3. Under PDF/A View Mode, change the selection from Only for PDF/A documents to Never, and click OK.

    Additional details on changing the setting can be located via the Adobe help site: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Acrobat/9.0/Standard/WS3E0E8467-B787-4020-A1D3-6BC762A42DF2.w.html
