Hi,

important new fixes in the patch and users are encouraged to upgrade.
This release fixes all known outstanding bug reports.

The full patch against linux-2.4.19-pre8, and a tarball of the
individual fixes in this patch set, is now propagating to

	ftp://ftp.*.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/sct/ext3/v2.4/

The full list of changes is included below.

Cheers,
 Stephen
