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
