%CHANGELOG
* Tue Feb 20 2001 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

[parted-1.4.9-1]
- new ja.po
- new USER.jp
- ext2_mkfs() and swap_write() doesn't zero out the first block.
  useful for Sun...
- fixed bsd_partition_align() - checks if the intersection of
  two constraints exists, before trying to find a solution.
- updated doc/USER, wrt CHS/LBA, etc.
- fixed ext2 mkfs code: the lost+found inode gets create/modify/access
  time time (NULL), rather than 1969 ;-)
- fixed fat: changed FatCluster from __s32 to __u32.  Arghh.

* Mon Feb 05 2001 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

[parted-1.4.8-1]
- added Sun regression tests
- fixed (hacked) disk_dos.c and disk_bsd.c, so *_partition_set_flag()
  always pass an fs_type != NULL to ped_partition_set_system()
- added partition flags for Sun disk labels
- more hacking on Sun stuff
- added Sun disk label support (thanks Ben!)
- added UFS probe/clobber support (thanks Ben!)
- added PED_DEVICE_FILE support (as opposed to going through
- we now require autoconf 2.49b to build configure from configure.in,
  because it provides the new AC_CHECK_SIZEOF
- use new AC_CHECK_SIZEOF for off_t.
- changed configure.in to match the new AC_CHECK_TYPE
- hacked libtool.m4 (!)... I hope this all gets fixed properly, soon..
- tried to make libparted/device.c more portable
- libparted/fs_fat/bootsector.h - fixed the size of the FAT16 part of
  the union... needed an extra byte in boot_code.  (purely aesthetic ;-)

* Tue Jan 16 2001 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

[parted-1.4.7-1]
- fixed ped_file_system_clobber() - wasn't leaving/fetching
  exceptions properly
- fixed _calc_min_logical_start() - was horribly broken.
  Only affects the new work-around for "cylinder not aligned", etc.
- don't try to guess the geometry for a second time...
  (introduced geom_already_guessed to PedDevice)
- ext2_mkfs now enables file-type by default.
- ped_partition_new() (not DISK_partition_new()) calls
  ped_partition_set_system() now. Makes sure it calls
  ped_partition_set_system() for extended partitions too!
- added documentation for ped_file_system_clobber()
- fixed semantics for ped_file_system_clobber() - they need
  to change, since ped_file_system_probe() is different...

* Mon Jan 08 2001 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

[parted-1.4.6-1]
- msdos_partition_new() if there is no file system passed, sets
  the system to 0x83. 0 is a bad choice, because it means it isn't
  a partition. It's an even worse choice, because it will make
  msdos_probe() fail.
- "partition not aligned" workaround (similar to that in 1.2.x)
- uses dgettext (PACKAGE, ...) instead of gettext (...). Updated
  API docs, to reflect this (for ped_partition_flag_get_name(), etc.)
- released 1.4.6-pre1
- fixed brain-dead bug, dealing with min_geom in _primary_constraint()
  in libparted/disk_dos.c
- released 1.4.6-pre2 (internally)
- fixed another bug (out-by-one, in _primary_constraint(), again)
- added bindtextdomain() to ped_init()
- removed that annoying "Parted's boot loader" message
- ped_file_system_probe() now attempts ped_file_system_open(), if
  there is any ambiguouity
- mac_clobber() now nukes the partition map as well ;-)

* Fri Dec 29 2000 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

[parted-1.4.5-1]
- documented PedConstraint and PedAlignment (doc/API)
- made incompatible change to API: changed ped_constraint_exact()
  now takes a PedGeometry, not a PedPartition (what was I thinking?!)
- the bug fix in 1.4.5-pre3 (wrap-around bug) was wrong. Fixed
  properly now.
- made the FAT16 <-> FAT32 conversion messages more friendly
- ext2_mkfs() now makes sparse file systems by default
- rearranged ext2_mkfs() a bit, and separated generation of the
  super block
- fixed bug in ext2_mkfs(): if there isn't enough room for per-group
  metadata in the last block group, then chop it off!
- fixed ext2 bug in ext2_is_data_block() in ext2.h. I forgot to
  endian-awarenize (?) it!!!
- FAT resizer now avoids changing the fat type (FAT16 or FAT32)
  in script mode
- removed error checking, after the "point of no return" in the
  FAT resizer
- updated documentation, adding info about FAT16 <-> FAT32, and
  boot loaders
- fixed nasty wrap-around bug in fat_construct_directory()
  and fat_convert_directory(), when directories have their last
  cluster/sector filled.
- merged in FAT32 boot loader fix (now copies the "hidden sectors")
- merge FAT fix from 1.2.14-pre1
- Apple_Free partitions have status 0x0 (not 0x33)
- fixed _ext2_get_resize_constraint(). constraint->min_size was
  calculated in (ext2) blocks, not 512 byte sectors. (patch from
  Matt Wilson)
- commented out "this is not a block device", because it already
  warns about "this is not SCSI/IDE", etc.
- added another example to the documentation
- made the "unable to align partition" error message a bit more
  understandable, and allow the problem to be ignored.
- added an assertion to ext2_is_data_block(), to make sure the block
  is in the file-system.
- added a note about "make install-libs" for e2fsprogs
