Fedora Update Notification
2007-07-24 22:22:25.039610

Name        : ntfs-3g
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.710
Release     : 1.fc7
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:

Lots of big ticket fixes here, but this one has had a lot of upstream testing (this update was heavily delayed by fuse), so I'm pushing it to stable.

o  fix: move, rename and hard link could return "input/output error"
o  fix: very rare, recoverable directory corruption
o  fix: portability improvements
o  change: more troubleshooting hints if a volume can't be mounted
o  change: logging improvements 
o  new: install executables to the root file system otherwise 
        mount could fail during boot
o  fix: any kind of file size change failure returned 
        "Operation not permitted"
o  fix: file close failure was not always reported
o  fix: unmount failure was not always reported
o  fix: file creation always gave "I/O error" if the $MFT Bitmap
        wasn't up-to-date
o  fix: converting very long file names to Unicode may failed
o  fix: syslog messages didn't show the low level error detail
