Name        : ntfs-3g
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 2009.1.1
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.ntfs-3g.org/
Summary     : Linux NTFS userspace driver
Description :
The ntfs-3g driver is an open source, GPL licensed, third generation
Linux NTFS driver. It provides full read-write access to NTFS, excluding
access to encrypted files, writing compressed files, changing file
ownership, access right.

Technically it’s based on and a major improvement to the third
generation Linux NTFS driver, ntfsmount. The improvements include
functionality, quality and performance enhancements.

ntfs-3g features are being merged to ntfsmount. In the meanwhile,
ntfs-3g is currently the only free, as in either speech or beer, NTFS
driver for Linux that supports unlimited file creation and deletion.

Update Information:

Update to stable release 2009.1.1:    STABLE Version 2009.1.1 (January 22, 2009)
-- Release Notes    * New: Built-in, transparent UTF-8 conversion support. This
solves many previous locale related problems and even more with hidden and
inaccessible filenames having national characters.  * New: Support
getting/setting the file creation timestamp on OS X.  * Fix: An extended
attribute got corrupted if the new attribute size was smaller than the original
size.  * Fix: Memory leaked if an extended attribute or alternate data stream
couldn't be opened.  * Fix: Report an error if a filename can not be listed
during reading a directory.  * Change: The 'locale=' mount option is not used
anymore for filename characterset conversion. Instead filenames are always
converted to UTF-8.
