Welcome,

Several things are ongoing in development which are not ready yet and 
before too much things would pile up, here is a quick release candidate. 
The same package will be released as stable earliest after four days 
if no serious problem is reported.

The most important change is, the driver binaries are installed in the /bin

and /lib directories on the root file system by default (--exec-prefix=/) 
because automount would fail during boot if the fstab entries are not in 
the right order. This became one of the most often reported problems and it

was highly mysterious and frustrating for users. Please note, that FUSE 
should be also installed the same way (./configure --exec-prefix=/) to 
solve this problem. Ntfs-3g checks and warns the user during compilation if

this is not the case.

The latest FreeBSD port includes Csaba Henk's user space cache library 
(UBLIO) thanks to Alejandro Pulver, which has resulted a major, 8-fold 
performance boot, apparently very close to the Linux level.

Major visible changes:

  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
  o  fix: compilation improvements on OS X and NetBSD

The release candidate is available at

Many thanks to Alejandro Pulver, Alistair Crooks, Dominique L Bouix, 
Peritus, Karel Zak, Florent Mertens, Regis Duchesne, Colin Watson, 
Miklos Szeredi, and Csaba Henk.

Good hunting,
		Szaka
