Fedora Update Notification
2009-03-27 14:10:09

Name        : ntfs-3g
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 2009.3.8
Release     : 1.fc10
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:

Updated to 2009.3.8, fixes from upstream changelog:    *  Fix: Some
defragmenters reported NTFS-3G created directories unmovable.  * Fix: The
Windows NTFS file system checker, CHKDSK, may reported "free space marked as
allocated in the master file table (MFT) bitmap".  * Fix: The driver may
returned "No space left on device" error when there was still free space on the
NTFS volume.  * Change: 10-50% faster file and directory creation, removal,
copy, unpackaging performance.  * Change: 500-1000% faster mount time. This is
mostly noticable on multi-TB volumes and embedded devices.   * Change: Improved
multi-cluster allocation, non-aligned file write performance.  * Change:
Improved volume consistency and recovery if the storage device was unsafely
detached or powered down.  * Change: Less disk space usage.  * New: The
version/-V command line option has been added.
