    SubjectANN: Linux-NTFS 1.4.0 released
    This is to announce release of Linux-NTFS user space support tools 1.4.0.

    Most important changes:

    mkntfs now support creation of NTFS floppies and the root directory on
    volumes with cluster sizes > 4kiB are now created correctly.

    ntfsfix now supports Windows XP (NTFS 3.1) volumes.

    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:


    1.4.0: Major fix in mkntfs, small update to ntfsfix, and other updates.

    - Update ntfsfix to support Windows XP NTFS volumes (NTFS 3.1).
    - Update layout.h with more information.
    - (Re)enable shared libraries.
    - Changes to mkntfs:
    - Correct handling of directories on volumes with cluster sizes
    above 4096 bytes.
    - Lower minimum size of NTFS partitions to 1MiB, scaling down the
    logfile size as necessary.
    - Support a wider range of input parameters. Now should have all
    valid combinations covered.
    - Update man page.
    - Implement better determination of device size.
    - Various bug fixes.

    1.2.2: Small fix in mkntfs and minor updates.
    - Small fix in mkntfs for small volumes with non-standard sector sizes,
    where the default values would result in a sector size smaller than the
    sector size and mkntfs would refuse to run because of this. The man page
    was updated accordingly.
    - Minor updates/clarifications to include/layout.h.

    1.2.1: Added ntfsfix man page and minor cleanup.
    - David Martínez Moreno <> donated a man page for
    ntfsfix as well as spelling mistake fixes all over the place.

    1.2.0: Important bug fixes to mkntfs.
    - Bug fixes for cluster sizes > 4kb 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.

    For older changes, see the ChangeLog file in the release or in CVS.

    Best regards,
