Hello,

Progress on two of the most popular requests.

File timestamps should be updated. Backup, synchronization tools, file 
managers, editors, make, and so on should benefit and work properly.

It's possible to run ntfs-3g as a non-root process using block devices from

now if the ntfs-3g binary is setuid root. Ntfs-3g drops the privilege after

mount. 

The major changes are

   * new: top request: setuid root support, the driver can run unprivileged
   * fix: the 'user' and 'users' fstab mount options didn't work (requires 
     setuid root ntfs-3g)
   * fix: time of last file modification and status change wasn't updated 

The latest BETA driver is available from

        http://www.ntfs-3g.org/index.html#download

Good bug hunting,

	Szaka
