International desktop name translations are accepted. A logfile is optionally created. The default softlink name "WinShares" was created in the desktop, and can be personalized by each user in the configuration file. The WORKGROUP variable in ws.conf supports more then one domain or workgroup. A progress bar is available. There is a new /etc/ws.conf that can overrides ~/.ws/ws.conf. Ws now deletes every residual softlink or folders left during an unclean shutdown. Several other improvements were made in the code.
