Fedora Update Notification
2007-10-15 21:29:21.911149

Name        : ntfs-3g
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.1004
Release     : 1.fc7
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: unwritten sparse file regions could get corrupted if the end of a write wasn't aligned to cluster boundary. Sparse files are very rarely used, most typically by bittorent clients.
* fix: creation of read-only files failed.
* change: free indode calculation was CPU intensive during write activity. This could reduce write performance when using millions of files if a file manager or desktop applet regularly polled for disk space usage. Now the statfs() system call is constant time.
* change: file creation performance is improved by 40-80%.
* change: smart directory traversal is 20-200% faster for disk based and 300-600% faster for memory cache based traversals.
