Release Notes: This release includes fixes to the file system and utilities. There is now a patch being provided that will make it easier to move from release 1.0.0 to 1.0.1. The patch file is call jfs-1_0_0-to-1_0_0.patch.gz. The jfsprogs.spec file was updated to make it work on more distributions. A "force" option was added to mkfs to avoid the confirmation message. fsck was fixed to handle the index table on the root directory. The built utilities are now placed in /sbin instead of /usr/sbin when using "make install". A hang during copying files on the 2.2.x series was fixed. A TxLock compile problem was fixed. The number of blocks for directories is now correctly updated. A fix was made to prevent old data from being written to disk from the page cache.

Release Notes: This release includes fixes to the file system. The rest of the utilities have been changed to use standard types. Both the file system and the utilities have been changed to use endian macros, so that JFS will now store the meta-data as little endian when running on all architectures. With this change, you must reformat all of the JFS partitions using the new mkfs.jfs included in this drop, if you are running on a big-endian system.
