Subject: Stable NTFS-3G 1.5130 released

Greetings,

This time we have not only one or two but in fact, three NTFS-3G releases!
The topics:

  *  New Stable NTFS-3G Release
  *  New Advanced NTFS-3G Release
  *  New High-Performance NTFS-3G for Embedded Devices
  *  Acknowledgements

Reading a data storage with permanent or temporary physical damage, or a 
partial read system call could result ignoring the low level hardware error

and returning invalid data. The stable release fixes this issue. Upgrade is

recommended to be able to detect hardware faults earlier, being able to 
cope with them better and to minimize data loss in these increasingly more 
common scenarios (huge rotating disks, rapidly spreading SSDs).

The latest stable release is available at http://ntfs-3g.org/

While the focus of the Stable NTFS-3G driver is reliability, the Advanced 
NTFS-3G driver aims at developing, maturing, and releasing new features to 
get user feedback before they are integrated in the stable releases.

The Advanced NTFS-3G releases are designed as add-ons to the latest stable 
release. They benefit from all the stable improvements and fixes. This 
facilitates the subsequent, incremental, safe integration of the newer 
features both for the developer and the user.

Jean-Pierre Andre leads the development of the Advanced NTFS-3G driver. 
The currently available features are

   - Full file ownership and permissions support with configurable user 
     mapping.

   - POSIX ACL support.

   - Built-in, transparent UTF-8 support (no need for the locale= option).

   - Windows junction points are seen as symbolic links.

   - Performance improvements.

   - Tools for managing ownership, permissions and ACLs: secaudit checks 
     the integrity of ownership, permissions and ACL; usermap gives help 
     to configure ownership.

The NTFS-3G performance on embedded devices didn't get attention in the 
past and the critics about the poor performance were well justified.

We always carefully listen to our users and have improved the driver 
performance to be 10-20 times better. Consumer electronic device makers 
can find more information on http://ntfs-3g.com/commercial.html
