Microsoft announced that the next service pack for Windows 10 will disable SMBv1, which I understand to include CIFS:
Perhaps a library will help us to support a modern version of this protocol:
Or perhaps we should end of life CIFS and use WebDAV for all shared drive use cases?

Based on a survey of customers, and investigation into potential improvements to WebDAV, Product Management recommends against implementing SMBv3 at this time.
Our analysis and recommendations are publicly documented here:
We might consider SMBv3 at some point in the future as a module with separate revenue to support its development.

Protocol improvement will be planned and run via PRODDEL-285.

I agree that this is not something we will do in the short term.
In the long term, an SMBv3 implementation could make a nice proprietary add-on to the open core. Visuality System is interested in helping us OEM their SMB3 implementation, which could be a relatively inexpensive way of delivering this capability.
In the six months that we have been communicating to our customers that we are moving away from SMBv1, we have not received enough interest in us supporting a newer version of the protocol in order to justify the development effort. We will continue to let customers know that we are considering this capability if customers are willing to invest in it.
