      Network File System (NFS) Version 4 Minor Version 1 Protocol
                   draft-dnoveck-nfsv4-rfc5661bis-00

Abstract

   This document describes the Network File System (NFS) version 4 minor
   version 1, including features retained from the base protocol (NFS
   version 4 minor version 0, which is specified in RFC 7530) and
   protocol extensions made subsequently.  The later minor version has
   no dependencies on NFS version 4 minor version 0, and is considered a
   separate protocol.

   This document obsoletes RFC 8881.  In addition to many corrections
   and clarifications, it relies on NFSv4-wide documents to
   substantially revise the treatment of protocol extension,
   internationalization, and security, superseding the descriptions of
   those aspects of the protocol appearing in RFCs 5661 and 8881.
