Gmane
From: Szabolcs Szakacsits <szaka-IyvsvuGDJ8VAfugRpC6u6w <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Stable ntfs-3g-1.616 released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.ntfs-3g.devel
Date: Saturday 16th June 2007 22:33:39 UTC (over 10 years ago)
Welcome,

The release candidate became the stable.

The most important change is that 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 during compilation if this is not the case. 
If you are a package maintainer then please consider packaging this 
way ntfs-3g and FUSE.

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 since the last stable release:

  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 stable release can be downloaded from

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