NTFS-3G 1.2129

Time for a new release. Information on what's new in ntfs-3g can be found at the NTFS-3G release page.

There are a few changes specific to the OS X package:

  • More reliable probing due to the new ntfs-3g.probe utility, included in the main ntfs-3g source tree.

  • Graphical user feedback when a mount operation does not succeed through a Finder dialog box.

  • Ability to turn off the UBLIO caching layer for individual drives. This is done by creating a file called ".ntfs-noublio" in the directory ".NTFS-3G" at the root of the NTFS drive.

  • Errors are always logged to the log file (/var/log/ntfs-3g.log). Debug logging can be turned on as an additional option.

  • All "control files" (.ntfs-readonly, .ntfs-locale and .ntfs-noublio) have been consolidated to a new ".NTFS-3G" subdirectory under the root of the drive. If you depend on these control files, please move them manually to it's new location before installing this version of the package.
