  • MSDN Release Notes —November 14, 2013

    This release contains updates made to protocol documents since the last release. For this release, all Windows protocols documentation is available as Web content under Windows Protocols on MSDN in addition to PDF format on the Microsoft Download Center.

    The following documents are new in this release:

        • [MS-HTTPE]: Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Extensions
        • [MS-RDPET]: Remote Desktop Protocol: Telemetry Virtual Channel Extension

        The full name of [MS-NBTE] has been changed to [MS-NBTE]: NetBIOS over TCP (NBT) Extensions.

        These three protocol documents have changed since the RTM release of the Windows 8.1 and Windows 2012 R2 operating systems due to changes made in the General Availability release via KB2883200:

        • MS-ECS: Enterprise Client Synchronization Protocol
        • MS-SMB2: Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol Versions 2 and 3
        • MS-SMBD: SMB2 Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) Transport Protocol
          The following known issues exist in the November 14 2013 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.
    • Cross-protocol links are only functional when the PDF files for the protocols are in the same folder.

      Note: Links in the PDFs do not 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 and Adobe Reader 9.5, 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
