e2fsprogs 1.42.2-1 source package in Debian


e2fsprogs (1.42.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version
  * Fixed various man pages (Closes: #665427)
  * Speed up resize2fs for large file systems (Closes: #663237)
  * 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.
  * Fix mke2fs -S so it does not corrupt the first block group's
  * Add pointer for e2fsprogs-udeb to libcomerr2.shlibs (Closes: #665885)
