--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-6375

Name        : ntfs-3g
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 1.2712
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://www.ntfs-3g.org/
Summary     : Linux NTFS userspace driver
Description :
The ntfs-3g driver is an open source, GPL licensed, third generation
Linux NTFS driver. It provides full read-write access to NTFS, excluding
access to encrypted files, writing compressed files, changing file
ownership, access right.

Technically it’s based on and a major improvement to the third
generation Linux NTFS driver, ntfsmount. The improvements include
functionality, quality and performance enhancements.

ntfs-3g features are being merged to ntfsmount. In the meanwhile,
ntfs-3g is currently the only free, as in either speech or beer, NTFS
driver for Linux that supports unlimited file creation and deletion.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

* Fix: A corrupted size directory or a directory over tens of million files may
hang the driver. If NTFS-3G is compiled with an external FUSE library (non-
default on Linux) then FUSE CVS is needed until FUSE 2.8.0 is released.  * Fix:
Removing alternate data streams and extended attributes leaked memory.  * Fix:
Mount could fail with some mount(8) utilities (e.g. busybox one) if the
/etc/mtab file didn't exist or was on a read-only file system. This fix should
solve most of the "/bin/mount: invalid option -i" mount problems.  * Fix: The
driver always returned "I/O errors" if the standard file descriptors were closed
during mount, e.g. via some usage of udev, hotplug, etc.     For the full
details, see: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.ntfs-3g.devel/607
