This is to announce release of Linux-NTFS user space support tools 1.2.0.

Most important changes: mkntfs has been updated to version 1.41. Includes
important bug fixes for cluster sizes > 4kiB. (Detailed ChangeLog below.)

Linux-NTFS packages (your choice of source tar.gz or rpm, binary i386.rpm
and devel rpm) can be downloaded from the Linux-NTFS home page at:

Or if you prefer CVS access, look at the project home page on Sourceforge
for details how to access the cvs server:

Changes since 1.0.2:

- mkntfs bug fixes for cluster sizes > 4kiB involving corrections to mft
mirror size and contents, mft data attribute position and mft bitmap size.
Some of those were nasty so this is a major improvement. Hopefully these
were the last bugs.

Changes since 1.0.1:

- Small cleanup of the distribution. Move mkntfs to sbin (was put in bin

- Small bug fix to mkntfs man page.

Changes since 1.0.0

- Confirmed that at least gcc-2.96 is needed to compile linux-ntfs.

- Removed ldm.c from linux-ntfs. It will reappear as ldminfo.c in a new
package, probably linux-ldm.

- Taken out some files from the distribution, but they are still present in
CVS. This is because they are not really useful except if you are a
developer wanting to play about.

Best regards,
