e2fsprogs (1.42.12-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version
  * Fix various e2fsck bugs when trying to repair bigalloc file systems.
  * E2fsck can now repair a file system with an overly large
    s_first_meta_bg field, which had previously caused all e2fsprogs
    programs to crash when trying to open such a file system.
  * Fix e2fsck so that it can correctly fix a number of rare file system
    corruptions that were discovered when using a file system fuzzer.
  * Fix e2fsck so it does not try to write back block group descriptors
    if they have not been modified.
  * The mke2fs program will now place metadata blocks in the last
    flex_bg so they are contiguous.  This reduces free space
    fragmentation in a freshly created file system, as well as allowing
    mke2fs commands which request extremely large flex_bg size to succeed.
  * Mke2fs now creates hugefiles more efficiently (with fewer extent
    tree blocks).
  * Fix a 32/64-bit overflow bug that could cause resize2fs to loop
  * Reduce the memory consumption of resize2fs for very large file
  * Fix a bug that could cause resize2fs to create a corrupted file
    system when shrinking a very large file system (typically > 16TB)
    that had been previously grown using resize2fs.  (Closes: #756922)
  * Fix tune2fs updating UUID's when manipulating file systems with
    external journals (both the file system and journal UUID).
  * Fix tune2fs so it can remove an external journal for file systems
    with a 1k block size.
  * Add a new debugfs command, "inode_dump", which prints the inode in
    hex and ASCII format.
  * The debugfs command "set_inode_field" will now automatically
    allocate blocks for indirect blocks and extent tree blocks.
  * Fix debugfs's "set_inode_field" so can properly handle
  * The debugfs "rdump" command will now take multiple source arguments.
  * Fix debugfs's argument parsing for the freefrag command.
  * Fixed a double close(2) bug in "rdump" and "rdump -p".
  * Fix filefrag to properly handle using the FIBMAP ioctl (with -B).
  * e4defrag will now defrag backwards-allocated files
  * Clarified messages that were confusing users in debugfs, e2fsck,
    mke2fs, and resize2fs (Closes: #758029, #757543, #757544)
  * Dumpe2fs will now complain if extra arguments are given to it.
    (Closes: #758074)
  * Update/clarify various man pages (Closes: #726760)
  * Update Czech, Dutch, French, Polish, Spanish, Sweedish, Ukrainian,
    and Vietnamese translations

e2fsprogs (1.42.11-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Don't try to build lib/ext2fs/tst_ext2fs unless running "make
    check"; this fixes a MIPS FTBFS problem because mips has a special
    no-pics build needed for bootloaders where we only build libext2fs
    but not libss or other libraries (Closes: #754605)
  * Update French translation

e2fsprogs (1.42.11-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version
  * NMU acknowledge (Closes: #752107)
  * mke2fs can now create hugefiles which are aligned to the beginning
    of the disk (instead of relative to the beginning of the partition),
    controlled via a mke2fs.conf configuration parameter.
  * Fix a bug which caused e2fsck to abort a journal replay on a file
    system with bigalloc enabled.  (Closes: #744953)
  * Fix mke2fs so it more correctly handles large flex_bg counts
  * Mke2fs will check the kernel version number and not just the sysfs
    feature flag to determine whether it is safe to enable lazy
    inode table initialization, so it won't get faked out if the ext4 is
    compiled as a mdoule which hasn't happened to be loaded yet.
  * E2fsck will now automatically fix a last mount time or last write time
    which is in the future in preen mode.
  * Mke2fs will now check the file system revision number requested by the
    command line, and reject it if it is too large.
  * If filefrag runs into an error, it will continue processing the rest
    of the files specified on thec ommand line, but then exit with an
    error code.
  * Filefrag now prints some additional new flags (such as
    FIEMAP_EXTENT_ENCODED), and print unknown flags as hex values.
  * Fixed support in filefrag for files with > 2**32 blocks on 32-bit
  * Fixed a file descriptor leak in debugfs when copying files.
  * Add Esparanto and Ukrainian translations, and update Czech, Dutch,
    French, German, Italian, Polish, Sweedish, and Vietnamese translations.
  * Fixed cross-compilation support.  (Closes: #753375)
  * Update/fix various man pages

e2fsprogs (1.42.10-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version
  * The mke2fs program no longer requires a force (-F) option when
    when creating a file system in a regular file, since this is a very
    common use case when managing virtual machine images
  * The mke2fs program will now ask for confirmation before wiping out a
    pre-existing file system, partition label, or physical volume
  * Fix e2fsck so that it properly handles an inconsistent quota inode.
    Previously the quota inode could be completely corrupted, and
    missing quota records could be not noticed
  * Fix mke2fs so if packed metadata blocks are enabled that the block
    group checksum are set correctly
  * Debugfs has new commands to allow the quota inode to be queried directly
  * Tune2fs will allow removal of dirty journal with two "-f" options
    (Closes: #559301)
  * Fixed some off-line resize2fs bugs when relocating metadata blocks
    when growing or shrinking bigalloc file systems
  * Fixed resize2fs's calculation of the minimum required file system
    size.  This allows resize2fs -M to shrink the file system more
  * Fixed resize2fs to properly handle shrinking a very large and empty
    file system to a very very small size
  * Fixed e4defrag to work with 64-bit and bigalloc file systems
  * Fixed e2fsck to not issue a large number of very scary (but
    harmless) corruption messages when checking very large file systems
    when the file system has more inodes than the number of seconds
    since January 1, 1970.
  * E2fsck will now check the whole file system if file system problems
    are detected durings its initial "pass 0" sanity check
  * Filefrag now prints the "shared extent" flag which is used by some
    file systems such as btrfs
  * The mke2fs program would previously correctly omit the resize_inode
    feature when creating a file system > 16TB when the fs size was
    determined automatically.  It will now also do the right thing when
    the user explicitly specifies the file system size.
  * The message printed by logsave is now much less scary (Closes: #468821)
  * Fix spelling typo in the package descriptions
  * Update Czech, Dutch, French, German, Polish, Spanish, Sweedish, and
    Vietnamese translations (Closes: #703048)
  * Update/fix various man pages
  * Fix debian/rules compatibility problem with GNU make 4.0

  * Fix lintian warning: debian-changelog-has-wrong-weekday
  * Fix lintian warning: non-standard-dir-perm by using dh_strip's
    --dbg-package option instead of manually managing the debug files
  * Fix printf type format mismatch in e2image
  * Improved debugfs's error reporting when parsing block numbers
  * Use consistent configure options across the multiple e2fsprogs
    builds; this means that e2fsck.static will now use the blkid library
    shipped with util-linux, instead of the internal one shipped with
    the e2fsprogs sources.

  * mke2fs will detect an attempt to create a file system on a
    loop-mounted image file
  * Fixed a large number of bugs in resize2fs, e2fsck, debugfs, to
    handle bigalloc and 64-bit file systems.
  * Tune2fs will no longer allow changing the uuid on a mounted file
    system with the uninit_bg feature enabled.
  * E2fsck will properly allocate a new extent tree block in the rare
    case where one is needed when rehashing an extent-mapped directory.
  * Mke2fs wil now properly set the LARGE_FILE feature when creating a
    journal > 2GB.
  * Debugfs will now correctly handle free a range of inodes using the
    freei command.
  * E2fsck will no longer complain if an external journal was exactly
    2**32 blocks.
  * E2fsck will not longer try to add a missing lost+found directory
    when run in read-only mode.
  * Fixed some buffer overrun bugs when creating standard e2image files
  * Mke2fs will not try to set both the meta_bg and resize_inode feature
    when the extended option "-E resize=NNN" is specified by the user.
  * Dumpe2fs will no longer abort when trying to print the journal
    information from an e2image-created image file.
  * Debugfs's "write" command can now create a sparse files
  * Debugfs can now support a command line which is up to 8k long
  * E2image will refuse to create a raw or qcomw image using a mounted
    file system unless the -f option is given.
  * E2image has been made more useful for efficiently copying file
    systems using the -ra options.  New options to help with this use
    case that were added: -o, -O, -p, and -c.
  * Fixed a regression introduced in 1.42.8 which would cause e2fsck to
    erroneously report uninitialized extents past i_size to be invalid.
  * Fixed cases where resize2fs could corrupt a file system, especially
    when shrinking a file system.  (Closes: #660793)
  * Fixed resize2fs and e2fsck to not crash when operating on a file
    system with the MMP feature enabled.
  * Fixed debugfs's write command to properly create a zero-length file
    (instead of creating an invalid inode).
  * Fixed e2fsck to not crash when trying to delete an invalid
    extent-mapped symlink.
  * Improved debugfs's help texts
  * Fixed a potential integer overflow problem in e2freefrag
    (Closes: #718205)
  * The config.guess and config.sub files have been updated to the
    latest to help with the ppcle port.  (Closes: #732076)
  * Updated/fixed various man pages.  (Closes: #586218, #669730,

e2fsprogs (1.42.8-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version
  * Work around Debian Bug #712530 (Closes: #708307)
  * Fix e2fsck so it can check a read-only root file system with an
    external journal.  (Closes: #707030)
  * Fix off-line resizing of file systems with flex_bg && !resize_inode
    (Closes: #696746)
  * Change mke2fs so that it does not set the root directory to the real
    uid/gid of the mke2fs process.  Add the extended option root_owner to
    override this behavior.
  * If an invalid journal size is given to mke2fs, it will now complain
    and exit sooner.
  * Fix resize2fs when shrinking file systems to make sure that bitmap
    blocks aren't left outside the bounds of the shrunken file system.
    This could happen with flex_bg file systems that were grown using
    the old online resizing algorithm.
  * E2fsck will now detect and repair corrupted extent trees which contain
    invalid extents at the end of the extent tree leaf block.
  * E2fsck will now longer complain about zero length extended attribute values.
  * Fix a regression introduced in e2fsprogs v1.42 which caused e2image -s
    to crash.
  * Add safety check so tune2fs will not attempt to set the inode size to
    be larger than the block size.
  * Enhance chattr to allow clearing the extent flag if the kernel allows it
  * Fix e2image with large (> 32-bit) file systems (Closes: #703067)
  * Mke2fs will not give warnings about the bigalloc and quota options in
    quiet mode.
  * Debugfs was erroneously giving spurious error messages for certain
    extent_inode subcommands which take arguments (split_node,
    replace_node, and insert_node).  This has been fixed.
  * Fix the parsing of the 's' (sectors) in parse_num_blocks2, which among
    other programs is used by mke2fs.
  * Fix texinfo incompatibilities (Closes: #712365)
  * Updated/fixed various man pages  (Closes: #712429, #712430, #707609)
  * Update German translation

e2fsprogs (1.42.7~WIP-2013-01-01-1) experimental; urgency=low

  * New upstream version (pre-release for testing)
  * Added new options to filefrag to be consistent with the version from
  * Fixed a bug in resize2fs which could cause severe file system
    corruption when growing an ext4 file system which was formatted with
    fewer-than-normal reserved gdt blocks
  * Fixed resize2fs to be able to handle off-line resizes of file
    systems with the flex_bg feature and without any reserved gdt
    blocks or if the file system did not have the resize_inode feature
  * Fix a crash while mke2fs is parsing "-E resize=NNN" with the 64bit
    file system feature enabled
  * Added the "zap_block", "block_dump", and "extent_open" commands to
  * Fixed e2fsck so it detects and fixes inconsistencies in the interior
    nodes of an inode's extent tree
  * Fixed mke2fs's handling of the mmp_update_interval option
  * Optimized e2fsck's CPU utilization
  * Fixed debugfs's htree command so that all its messages are sent
    through the pager.
  * Fixed debugfs's dump_file and cat functions so they work correctly
    on file systems with a block size greater than 8k.
  * Fixed e2freefrag so it works on 64-bit file systems, and so it uses
    much less memory.

e2fsprogs (1.42.5-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version
  * Mark the e2fsprogs package as Multi-Arch: foreign, so if a package
    foo:i386 depends on e2fsprogs and is installed on an amd64 system,
    the native e2fsprogs will satisfy the dependency.  (Closes: #678395)
  * Fix a fd leak which could cause logsave (and hence a boot-time rc
    init script) to hang (Closes: #682592)
  * Fix a problem if e2fsck where if the root file system is mounted
    read-only, e2fsck would not clear an error indication in the journal
    superblock.  Combined with a kernel bug, this would cause the e2fsck
    to check the file system after every single boot
  * Fixed filefrag so it would not seg fault on virtual filesystems such
    as /proc: e.g., "filefrag /proc/partitions"
  * Fix filefrag so that it correctly reports the number of extents
  * Fixed a bug which caused "mke2fs -N 256 -t ext4 /tmp/foo.img 256m"
    to write blocks out until /tmp filled
  * Fixed a bug in how e2fsck would uniquify directory entry names
  * Change e2fsck so it will allow file systems mounted read-only to be
    checked with the -f option.
  * Fix e2fsck so that the file system is marked as containing an
    error if the user chooses not to fix the quota usage information.
  * Fix tune2fs so that it correctly removes the quota feature when
    the last quota inode is removed.
  * Fix tune2fs so that after removing a quota inode, the block bitmap
    is updated; otherwise, e2fsck would complain after running 'tune2fs
    -O ^quota <dev>'.
  * Fix tune2fs so that when converting a file system from using legacy
    quota files to the new quota file system feature with hidden quota
    files, the accounting for these files is handled correctly so that
    e2fsck doesn't complain.
  * The e4defrag program now allows device symlinks, such as
    /dev/mapper/testvg-testlv, instead of insisting on less
    human-friendly names such as /dev/dm-2
  * Updated/fixed various man pages  (Closes: #680114)

  * Be less strict about the EXT4_EOFBLOCKS_FL flag (which will
    eventually be going away in the ext4 file system format)
  * Teach mke2fs to use direct I/O if the -D option is given
  * Print errors returned by ext2fs_open2() and ext2fs_check_desc() so
    we can more easily diagnose memory allocation failures caused by
    insufficient memory and abort on memory allocation failures
  * E2fsck can now write log files containing the details of the
    problems that were found and fixed directly.
  * E2fsck can now limit the number of messages issued and printed on
    the console
  * The dumpe2fs, debugfs, and tune2fs now use rbtree bitmaps, which
    cause them to use much less memory for large file systems.
  * E2fsck will now check for zero-length extents, since older kernels will
    OOPS if they comes across one
  * Fix e2fsck's discard behaviour so it does not discard too many
    blocks, and it will not use discard if the device advertises
    that discard does not persistently zero data.  Also, if e2fsck is
    run in read-only mode, do not try to discard data.

  * mke2fs and e2fsck now use much less memory for large file systems
  * Fixed mke2fs -S so it can be usefully used as a last ditch recovery
    command when for ext4 filesystems that have the uninit_bg feature enabled.
  * The mke4fs argv[0] is now recognized by mke2fs.
  * Fixed usage and help messages for mke2fs.
  * Eliminated spurious bad block group checksum warnings when e2fsck
    falls back to using the backup group descriptors.
  * Debugfs's ncheck command is now much more useful when used to
    diagnose badly corrupted file system.  Added a new -c option.
  * Fixed bug in e2image which could cause it to fail to set i_size
    correctly if the last hole in the file is an exact multiple of a
  * Fixed a bug with resize2fs where for 1k and 2k file systems, the
    minimum file size used for resize2fs -M could be a block too small.
  * Fixed the badblocks program to honor the -s flag when in read-only -t

  * e2fsck -n will now always open the file system read-only.   We now
    disallow certain combination of options which previously were manual

  * Fix e2fsck to handle moving inode tables in FLEX_BG filesystems more

e2fsprogs (1.41.4-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix a number of filesystem corruption bugs in resize2fs when growing
    or shrinking ext4 filesystems off-line (i.e., when the ext4
    filesystem is not mounted).
  * Clarify tune2fs man page  (Closes: #515693)
  * Add homepage field to the debian control file (Closes: #506279)
  * Fix Hurd compilation problem (Closes: #521602)
  * Debugfs can now set i_file_acl_high via the set_inodes_field command
  * Debugfs will now display a 64-bit file acl block
  * Fix various gcc compilation warnings and other programming cleanups
  * Make sure libuuid closes all file descriptors before starting the
    uuidd daemon.
  * Avoid running e2fsck unnecessarily after doing an online resize
  * Mke2fs -S will now avoid trying to create the journal
  * Update the Czech translation from the translation project.
  * Fix support for external journals (which was broken in e2fsprogs 1.41.4)
  * Fix a compatibility issue with libext2fs info page and makeinfo 4.12
  * Fix a segfault in debugfs when running stat without an open filesystem
  * Teach the blkid library that starting in 2.6.29, ext4 can support
    filesystems without journals.
  * Add error check preventing the reserved_ratio argument to mke2fs and
    tune2fs from being negative.  (Closes: #517015)
  * Add support for tracking the number kilobytes written to the
    filesystem via the superblock field s_kbytes_written
  * New upstream release (1.41.4 -- released to Ubuntu has 1.41.4-1)
  * Fix bug which could sometimes cause blkid to return an exit value of
    zero for a non-existent device (Closes: #502541)
  * Fix spelling mistake in Debian changelog (Closes: #502323)
  * Fix blkid to deal with an ext3 filesystem with the test_fs flag
  * Fix debugfs's ncheck output to suppress extra characters at the end
    of the file name
  * Tune2fs now updates the block group checksums after changing the
    filesystem's UUID
  * Speed up tune2fs's inode resizing code so it is no longer vastly
    inefficient for moderate to large filesystems
  * Fix dumpe2fs so it doesn't attempt to print the inline journal
    information on filesystems with an external journal
  * Update the Catalan translation
  * Filter out lines when determining the library
    dependencies while building the initial ramdisk (Closes: #503057)
  * Fix e2fsck so an errant INODE_UNINIT flag set in a block group
    doesn't cause e2fsck to abort.
  * E2fsck now distinguishes between fragmented directories and
    fragmented files in verbose mode statistics and in the fragcheck
  * Avoid double-counting non-contiguous extent-based inodes in the
    verbose mode statistics.
  * E2fsck now leaves slack space when repacking directories so that a
    few new directory entries won't cause leaf nodes to become split
    right away.
  * E2fsck was previously not handling the case of a corrupted interior
    node in the extent tree, and would crash in that case.  It now will
    handle this and related failures robustly.
  * E2fsck problem descriptions involving the journal are no longer
    referred to as "ext3" problems, since ext4 filesystems also have
  * Fix a long-standing bug in e2fsck which would cause it to crash when
    replying journals for filesystems with block sizes greater than 8k.
  * Fix a regression in debugfs's logdump command so it works for
    filesystems with 32-bit block numbers.  This was accidentally broken
    when the header files were changed to support the 64-bit block numbers.
  * Fix resize2fs for ext4 filesystems.  Some blocks that that need moving
    when shrinking filesystems with uninit_bg feature would not be
    moved.  In addition, blocks and inode table blocks were not being
    correctly freed when shrinking filesystems with the flex_bg feable,
    which caused resize2fs -M to fail.  Finally, when blocks are moved,
    make sure the uninitialized flag in extents is preserved.
  * Add mkfs.ext4 symlink to the e2fsprogs-udeb package (Closes: #511207)
  * Resize2fs now reserves some extra block when calculating the minimum
    size to shrink the filesystem in case some extent allocation trees
  * Add a "set -e" to uuid-runtime's prerm script to make Lintian happy
  * The blkid library will now recognize btrfs filesystems and swap
    devices currently used by user-level software suspend.
  * tune2fs will not allow changing the inode size for filesystems that
    have the flex_bg feature enabled, since the code currently assumes
    the each block group's portion inode table is located in its own
    block group.
  * Fix tune2fs -I so it won't corrupt ext3/ext4 filesystem configured
    for RAID storage devices.
  * Mke2fs now understands a -U option which allows the UUID to be
    specified for the new filesystem.
  * Mke2fs will now treat devices with exactly 16TB as if they have 16TB
    minus one block, since many users expect ext4 to support 16TB
    devices, and the true maximum size is 16TB-1.
  * E2fsck will now flag filesystems that have an insane s_first_ino
    field in their superblock.

e2fsprogs (1.41.3-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
  * Fix e2fsck so it prints the correct inode number for uinit_bg
    related problems.
  * E2fsck will offer to clear the test_fs flag if the ext4 filesystem
    is available.
  * Fix a file descriptor leak in libblkid
  * Avoid a poteintial infinite loop in e2fsck when there are disk I/O
    errors while trying to close a filesystem.
  * Fix a potential infinite loop in resize2fs when a bogus new size of
    0 blocks is specified on the command line.
  * Add an early check to see if a device is read-only to avoid lots of
    confusing error messages.
  * Fix debugfs's ncheck command so it prints all of the names of
    hardlinks in the same directories.
  * Fix a bug in libblkid so it correctly detects whether the ext4 and
    ext4dev filesystems are available, so that the ext4dev->ext4
    fallback code works correctly.

e2fsprogs (1.41.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
  * Fix e2fsck's automatic blocksize detection.  This fixes a regression
      added in e2fsprogs 1.40.7 where e2fsck's -b option would not
      work if a blocksize wasn't also specified via the -B option.
  * Fix a potential file descriptor leak in libcom_err if the
      application exec's another program.
  * Fixed badblocks output for "badblocks -sw"
  * debugfs: Fix ncheck to print all pathnames for all of the specified inodes
  * Use dietlibc when possible for building e2fsck.static, to reduce the
      size of the static binary.
  * debugfs: Add the ability to specify the hash seed and to specify the
      hash algorithm by name to the "hash" command.
  * Add documentation for the file I/O functions to libext2fs.texinfo.
      (Closes: #484877)
  * Fix a bug in e2fsck where if a translation file is being used and
      e2fsck needs to print problem report with a custom question (such as
      "Run journal anyway?"), the PO file's header would get spewed onto
      the terminal.
  * Update Swedish, Vietnamese, Dutch, Indonesian, German, Czech translations
  * Fixed spelling mistakes in man pages  (Closes: #498100, #498101,
      #498102, #498103)
