- use libtool 1.4
- if we don't HAVE_TERMCAP_H, then, stick in a prototype for tgetnum()
- put AM_ENABLE_SHARED in... new libtool disables shared libraries
  by default.
- set -lreadline before checking for rl_completion_matches in
  configure.in (Timshel)
- use glib's library versioning system (Timshel)

- ext2_mkfs bug fixes (hidden by old revision level being 0!!!):
- ext2_inode_relocator.c, added (long) casts in fprintf() (thanks
- added AC_CHECK_FUNC(rl_completion_matches) to configure.in,
  and in ui.c, use that instead of completition_matches, if it is
  available. (completition_matches is being phased out)
- replaced "type -p" in configure.in with: LFS_CFLAGS="`getconf
  LFS_CFLAGS`" && CFLAGS="$CFLAGS $LFS_CFLAGS" (ash doesn't support
  type -p)
- added #include <string.h> to libparted/fs_ext2/ext2_mkfs.c (thanks
- cleaned up ped_partition_set_system(), wrt disk_type

- new po/de.po (German translations)
- fixed loop_read() - checks part != NULL *before* trying to access
  it now ;-)
- create revision 1.0 ext2 file systems (and not rev 0.1)
- configure.in: s/which/type -p/
- configure.in: shuffled things to get rid of warnings
- new po/gl.po (Galician translations)
- new po/ja.po (Japanese translations)
- added 64-bit endian macros
- #include <string.h> in fs_ext2/interface.c
- fs_ext2/ext2_mkfs.c: ext2_mkfs() now makes most of the "use-default"
  parameters 0. (This isn't a public interface, so no incompat)
- added CFLAGS=-Werror (yay!)
- applied move syntax patch (make END specification optional) from
  Vincent Stelhé <vincent stelhe free fr>. Thanks!
- fixed ped_device_{open,close}, so they only change dev->open_count
  on success
- cleaned (and fixed endian bug) in mkfs code... directory entries
  are made properly now
- fixed man page (thanks Timshel!)
- constified ped_file_system_type_get_next() (thanks msw!)
- fixed example 2 in doc/USER (section 2.5.2)
- changed msdos_write() (in libparted/disk_dos.c), to make the
  per-logical container extended partition just wrap the contained
  logical partition (and not extend to the end of the main extended
  partition) Apparantly this fixes problems with other partition
- configure.in: CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -D_REENTRANT" - useful for threaded
  users of libparted
- fixed buglet... the arbitary/safe/conservative number of 5
  was chosen for the number of heads to try when aligning logical
  partitions. However, for (virtual) disks with heads < 5, this causes
  wrap-around, causing recursive partition tables. Fortunately, heads <
  5 is rare, except for using Parted on files, or whatever. s/5/PED_MIN
  (5, dev->heads)/ in disk_dos.c
- minor changes to doc/USER and doc/FAT
- changed int -> size_t for lots of stuff in parted/strlist.c
- moved -luuid out of LIB and into UUID_LIB, to prevent multiple
  ugly -luuid's
- added AC_ISC_POSIX to configure.in
- fixed typo in error message in configure.in ... libbuid -> libuuid
- libparted/fs_ext2/ext2_resize.c, type-cast to (void*) first arg
  to ped_realloc()

* Mon Apr 09 2001 Ryan Weaver <ryanw falsehope com>

- updated docs w.r.t. boot disks
- sun_partition_align() allow partitions to END anywhere now
  (but prefer at the end of cylinders)
- added assertions ped_partition_is_active (part) for
- for msdos disk labels: if the partitions aren't alignend properly,
  now makes an attempt during msdos_partition_align() to align properly.
- new pt_BR.po (thanks Eliphas)
- moved Sun disk geometry sanity checks from sun_probe() into a
  separate helper function _check_geometry_sanity(), which is now
  called by sun_open().  Now allows users to ignore.
- fixed endianess bug in disk_sun.c.  The size of the whole disk
  partition was being computed incorrectly.
- in ped_device_close(), assert that the device is open (thanks
  to Wouter Coene)
- catch a bug in gcc 2.95.2 in ext2_mkfs_init_sb()  (thanks Wouter)
- only call bindtextdomain() in ped_init() if native language support
  is enabled.  (thanks Wouter)
- fixed the assertion in disk.c, in _disk_check_sanity().  On msdos
  disk labels, free space partitions should be > 5 * disk->dev->sectors,
  not > 5 * 63.
- now explicitly requires autoconf 2.49b, and will complain sufficiently.

* Sat Mar 17 2001 Ryan Weaver <ryanw falsehope com>

- changed include/parted/endian.h, to use __u{16,32} instead
  of unsigned {short, int}
- more copyright notice bureaucracy
- fixed BSD d_npartitions endianness and fencepost bugs
- fixed includes in libparted/libparted.c
- deal with serial numbers properly in FAT
- ped_geometry_destroy() no longer calls ped_geometry_sync()
  (what was I thinking?!)
- made the alignment-workaround go by default in script mode,
  and made it more inviting ("it is safe to ignore", etc.)
- work around bug in Windows ME, that generates broken partition tables

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

- 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>

- 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>

- 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>

- 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>

- 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

* Thu Nov 30 2000 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

- fixed a brain-dead bug in ext2_meta.c:109. This bug causes
  growth of ext2 all file systems, that require more GDT blocks
  to get corrupted!!! OUCH!!!
- fixed regression tests, to test GDT growth
- ped_device_add() adds to the end now
- added a check in /proc/partitions for devices
- added error checking to both versions doinode(). Hmmm, do I like
  this idea of 2 doinode()'s?
- finalized the copyright assignments, and now we can get rid of
  lots of annoying bureaucracy (read: s/Andrew Clausen, Lennert
  .../Free Softw.../g)
- changed "cp FROM-MINOR [TO-DEVICE] TO-MINOR" to

* Fri Nov 24 2000 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

- added ped_file_system_clobber_exclude(), and resize/copy now use it.
- fixed hfs_clobber() and reiserfs_clobber()

* Sun Nov 19 2000 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

- fixed a few mistakes in doc/USER (thanks Stefan!)
- now uses the en_US locale for numbers. (quick fix, because the
  "lexer" isn't properly i18nized yet - I'll fix this properly
  next week, because I intend to do Major Surgery TM on the
  command parser anyway). Basic problem is: the lexer says a
  number is [0-9.]+, but in Europe, s/\./,/.
- loop-back is now probed last.
- removed dependance on <linux/fs.h>
- discovered that type-casts have high precedence. oops.
  s/(long) EXPR/(long) (EXPR)/, which fixes seg faults on PPC.

* Wed Nov 15 2000 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

- added read-only support (useful for disk imaging from CD-ROMs)
- changed default behaviour to warnings such as "not a block device" (in
  libparted/device.c) to PED_EXCEPTION_IGNORE.
- removed the scary "development version only TM" message.  OOPS!

* Mon Nov 13 2000 Ryan Weaver <ryanw infohwy com>

- added ./configure --enable-all-static
- mac_partition_new() now sets the name to "untitled".
- added an assertion, that the disk has the PED_DISK_TYPE_EXTENDED
  feature, for extended partitions, in ped_partition_new()
- file systems only get ped_file_system_clobber()'d if mkfs is
  supported for that fs
- fixed hfs_probe()
- fixed some bugs with the mac_partition_align() stuff
- cleaned the doc/USER a bit more
- Mac bug fixes & reorganisation
- mac_partition_align() - greedily takes up free space now, if it
  is consistent with the constraints.
- set policy for _partition_align() - must be in update mode. Changed
  other functions to meet this.
- fixed a stupid bug introduced in 1.4.0-pre6, in libparted/disk_dos.c,
  read_table() Was passing a pointer to a pointer of a constraint,
  as opposed to the pointer.
- much hacking on Mac support
- fixed a bug in libparted/disk_mac.c, that broke mkpart*.
  In mac_partition_new(), it was checking for failure, but missed out the '!'.
- commented out the linux-swap Linux 2.0 warning. It annoys more users
  than it helps.
- hacked around the mac-boot & no-HFS problem, by setting the file system
  temporarily, in mac_partition_set_system() (YUCK!)
- applied a patch from Masahiro Sakai <ZVM01052 nifty ne jp>. Now uses
  mbs* as opposed to iconv. That fixes lots of brokeness, but there may
  be problems for utf-8 users... but this will be solved by gettext in future.
- fixed the annoying linux-swap on mac bug (it was trying to set the
  swap flag, before setting the partition type to linux-swap, which
  caused the Mac disk label code to complain)
- fixed a bug in ped_constraint_solve_nearest() - errr to complicated
  to explain - easier to look at the diff. Basically: I wasn't taking
  the intersection of the allowable start and end ranges properly,
  WRT min_start.
- removed some memory leaks from libparted/disk_dos.c, around the
  constraint stuff.
- fixed boot flag stuff for Mac
- docs have been massively updated (ages ago...)
- merged in changes to 1.2.10-pre3 (notably: malloc() debugging, and
  all the bugs / leaks fixed as a result ;-)
- added ped_disk_remove_partition()
- mac fixes: writes new signature now, s/Apple_Unix/Apple_UNIX/g
- reiserfs_probe() - doesn't probe outside of the partition any more ;-)
- lots of work on API docs
- added a bit to the documentation about how to deal with the boot disk,
  when it doesn't support your hardware
