ntfsprogs 1.11.1 released

A quick followup to 1.11.0, this release fixes several bugs in ntfsmount. You only need to upgrade if you intend to use ntfsmount.

ntfsprogs 1.11.0 released

Following on the tail of the 1.10.0 release, this release fixes some important bugs so upgrade is strongly recommended. Also, a new utility is introduced (ntfsmount) which is a FUSE 2.3.0 module which allows mounting of ntfs volumes from userspace. The volumes are then accessed using functionality provided by the ntfs library (libntfs). For developers, there is also a new utility (ntfsdecrypt), built only with "make extra", which decrypts encrypted ntfs files. Note this only works on Windows/Cygwin at present
as it needs the Windows Crypto API to obtain the users private key. The goals of this project are: create a new Linux kernel driver for the NTFS file system (v1.2 and later 3.0), user space utilities (e.g. format, ntfs check, etc.) and a library to avoid code duplication and provide access to NTFS to other GPLed programs... read more

ntfsprogs 1.10.0 released

The goals of this project are: create a new Linux kernel driver for the NTFS file system (v1.2 and later 3.0), user space utilities (e.g. format, ntfs check, etc.) and a library to avoid code duplication and provide access to NTFS to other GPLed programs. With the 1.10.0 release: Lots of changes across the board. This release is really long overdue. Major features are that ntfsresize now moves data out of the way when needed and that ntfscp can resize files when writing to them. Also mkntfs now tries to create bootable ntfs volumes. For further information, please read the ChangeLog.

ntfsprogs 1.9.2 released

This release fixes three bugs in the decompression code and adds significant enhancements to ntfsinfo (dump by path/filename, much more detailed information). Also, many cleanups and improvements. Upgrade is strongly recommended if you are accessing compressed files.

ntfsprogs 1.9.1 released

The goals of this project are: create a new Linux kernel driver for the NTFS file system (v1.2 and later 3.0), user space utilities (e.g. format, ntfs check, etc.) and a library to avoid code duplication and provide access to NTFS to other GPLed programs. This release is a minor update featuring a mostly rewritten ntfsinfo, mkntfs now creates bootable volumes, some 64-bit architecture fixes and lots of cleanups. Update is recommended for people using 64-bit architectures.

ntfsprogs 1.9.0 released

ntfsresize now supports relocation which generally means you are able to resize to any size you like (see ChangeLog for details). Also numerous build and code cleanups and fixes are included with the result that, in addition to Linux, ntfsprogs should now build (at least "make libs") on FreeBSD, NetBSD, Windows (Cygwin), and DOS (DJGPP). Further, ntfsprogs should build on all architectures supported by SuSE and Debian Linux.

This is basically a spring cleaning of the build process with lots of cleanups and a few bug fixes thrown in for good measure. Upgrade is not essential. The goals of this project are: create a new Linux kernel driver for the NTFS file system (v1.2 and later 3.0), user space utilities (e.g. format, ntfs check, etc.) and a library to avoid code duplication and provide access to NTFS to other GPLed programs.
