Subject: Stable NTFS-3G 1.2412 released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.ntfs-3g.devel
Date: Sunday 13th April 2008 02:38:16 UTC (over 9 years ago)
Good Day,

This release includes security, unprivileged mount, POSIX compliance
and many other minor fixes.

Major changes:

    * Fix: the file system depth was limited to 4095 characters by FUSE 
      and trying to access files and directories deeper gave "No such file 
      or directory" error. If NTFS-3G is compiled with an external FUSE 
      library (non-default), then FUSE CVS is needed until FUSE 2.8.0 is 
      released.

    * Fix: symlink(2) failed or the size was truncated at modulo 256 if the

      old path was over 255 bytes.

    * Fix: unprivileged mount may have been denied because supplementary 
      groups were dropped permanently too early as a security measure.

    * Fix: unprivileged mount may have been denied if the /etc/fuse.conf 
      file wasn't properly configured. This was redundant and the 
      /etc/fuse.conf file is not required anymore.

    * Fix: updating hard link attributes was delayed by one second which 
      resulted seeing their file sizes and timestamps incorrectly during 
      this time interval.

    * Fix: the 'noatime' mount option additionally and unconditionally was 
      passed to FUSE. 

The stable NTFS-3G driver can be downloaded from

We have also released the Linux port of Pawel Jakub Dawidek's POSIX file 
system test suite and recently updated it according to the initial 
feedbacks:
