Release Notes: This is a milestone release that implements writing of MFT records. This makes it possible to overwrite resident (i.e., very small) files. All the necessary housekeeping of the NTFS system files is now done to ensure data integrity, so ntfsfix no longer needs to be run after unmounting. The NFS-caused deadlock has been fixed. The driver has been included in the Linux kernel since 2.6.7.
Release Notes: A rarely-occurring bug has been fixed in the decompression code. Minor write-related enhancements have been introduced. The driver has been included in the Linux kernel since 2.6.7-rc3.
Release Notes: Two bugs were fixed in the decompression engine in handling of corner cases. The compilation problem on x86_64 was also fixed. Read-only (re)mounting of volumes with unsupported flags is now forced. The driver has been included in the Linux kernel since 2.6.7-rc1.
Release Notes: During read-write mounting, the driver performs stricter consistency checks and resets the NTFS journal file to prevent potential false rollbacks. The new nano-second kernel time precision was used to improve on the NTFS vs Linux time conversion functions. The driver has been included in the Linux kernel since 2.6.6.
Release Notes: This release implemented NFS exporting of NTFS volumes. Some minor updates and fixes were also made. The driver has been included in the Linux kernel since 2.6.6-rc3.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in handling compressed directories where "du" and "stat" would return incorrect values for the directory size. This driver is included in the Linux kernel since kernel release 2.6.2.
Release Notes: This release fixes the I/O errors on "ls" of certain fragmented files found by at least two people running Windows XP. This driver is included in the Linux kernel since kernel release 2.6.0-test10.
Release Notes: Major feature enhancements and a lot of bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: This release adds small bugfixes, cleanups, and performance improvements. Updating is recommended.
Release Notes: This is a small update to incorporate kernel 2.5.9. The default fmask was changed to 0177, which means that files do not get the executable bit by default. Minor miscellaneous bugs were fixed. Updating is recommended, and it is necessary if you want to use Linux 2.5.9. Note the patch will also work with 2.5.7, but it may not apply cleanly.
