Subject: Stable NTFS-3G 1.2310 released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.ntfs-3g.devel

Good Day,

To counteract the previous long release note, this is a short one.

Major changes in this release:

    * Fix: the driver crashed when one tried to open a non-existent file 
      which had at least twice as long file name as the one allowed by the 
      NTFS specification.

    * Fix: Windows CHKDSK may reported minor inconsistencies because the 
      data and allocation size of some special purpose resident unnamed 
      $DATA attribute in the index and inode FILE_NAME attributes could be 
      incorrect.

    * Fix: unprivileged mount failed if user had rights for everything 
      except the FUSE device file.

    * Fix: the 'dev' and 'suid' mount options didn't work.

    * Change: rmdir(2) returns ENOTEMPTY instead of EEXIST because the 
      GNOME glib library and the Nautilus file browser can't handle the 
      also standard EEXIST value which resulted an error message when for 
      instance one tried to remove a directory containing files.

    * Change: the 'dev' and 'suid' mount options are the default from now 
      on for root mounts, similarly as other file systems behave. These 
      options are always denied for setuid-root and unprivileged mounts.

The stable NTFS-3G driver can be downloaded from
