Name        : ntfs-3g
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 2009.2.1
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 2009.2.1. Changelog from upstream follows:    STABLE Version 2009.2.1
(February 12, 2009)    * New: The 'recover' and 'norecover' mount options were
introduced. The former option will casue the driver to recover and repair a
corrupted or inconsistent NTFS volume if it's possible. The default behaviour is
'recover'.  * Fix: The driver may crashed when it tried to read a highly
fragmented file or directory which was either corrupted or it was unreadable due
to a hardware error. Upgrade is recommended.  * Fix: The driver incorrectly
returned 'Permission denied' error message if a requested extended attribute
namespace wasn't supported.  * Fix: The lack of file backup timestamp support
confused some applications on OS X.  * Change: The user extended attribute
namespace is supported by default on Linux.  * Change: A volume having unclean
journal file is recovered and mounted by default. The 'norecover' mount option
can be used to disable this behavior.
