Fedora Update Notification

Name        : ntfs-3g
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 2010.1.16
Release     : 1.fc12
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:

* Fix: Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 couldn’t access a volume, file
or directory if it had a non-resident TXF_DATA attribute despite being allowed
by the NTFS $AttrDef attribute specification file. Solution is also available
from Microsoft, please see KB974729. Upgrade is recommended!  * Fix: NTFS-3G may
crashed if a junction point referred to a non-ASCII file.
