Hi,

This release shorts out finally the POSIX file timestamp updates, thanks to

Yura Pakhuchiy, it defaults to the new 'relatime' access time update method

instead of the old default 'noatime', and fixes two "Input/Output errors" 
which could happen during listing the content of a single directory having 
over 600,000 files or very rarely when successfully removing a hard link.

We are porting Pawel Jakub Dawidek's (FreeBSD ZFS fame) POSIX file system 
regression test suite to Linux and rapidly fixing the found issues.

The tests are run with the development version of the permission handling 
enhanced driver and so far it works marvelously. Apart from the not yet 
fully validated path and file name length handling and the lack of multi 
group support, the driver passes all other test cases with 100% success ...

if the FUSE kernel module fixes are also applied which are needed to 
invalidate the cached, stale file timestamps. It is hoped, that the FUSE 
fixes will make into the Linux kernel 2.6.24 release.

Jean-Pierre Andre has improved incredible lot on the security enhanced 
driver and a new beta version is planned to be released soon at

	http://pagesperso-orange.fr/b.andre/security.html

Until then, all those improvements and fixes are available in the CVS 
PERMISSION_HANDLING_BRANCH.

Great progress was made on OS X too, thanks to Erik Larsson. NTFS-3G can 
be used now on Leopard and the UBLIO version also boost performance 
drastically:
