-E2fsprogs 1.41.13 (December 13, 2010)
-E2fsck now supports the extended option "-E journal_only", which
-causes it to only do a journal replay.  This is useful for scripts
-that want to first replay the journal and then check to see if it
-contains errors.
-E2fsck will now support UUID= and LABEL= specifiers for the -j option
-(which specifies where to find the external journal).  (Addresses
-Debian Bug #559315)
-E2fsck now has support for the problems/<problem code>/force_no
-configuration option in e2fsck.conf, which forces a problem to not be
-Dumpe2fs will now avoid printing large negative offsets for the bitmap
-blocks and instead print a message which is a bit more helpful for
-flex_bg file systems.
-Mke2fs will now check the file system type (specified with the -t
-option) to make sure it is defined in the mke2fs.conf file; if it is
-not, it will print an error and abort.  If the usage type (specified
-with the -T option) is not defined in mke2fs.conf, mke2fs will print a
-warning but will continue.  (Addresses Debian Bug #594609)
-Clarified error message from resize2fs clarifying that on-line
-shrinking is not supported at all.  (Addresses Debian Bug #599786)
-Fix an e2fsck bug that could cause a PROGRAMMING BUG error to be
-displayed.  (Addresses Debian Bug #555456)
-E2fsck will open the external journal in exclusive mode, to prevent
-the journal from getting truncated while it is in use due to a user
-accidentally trying to run e2fsck on a snapshotted file system volume.
-(Addresses Debian Bug #587531)
-Fix a bug in e2fsck so it has the correct test for the EOFBLOCKS_FL
-The tune2fs program can now set the uninit_bg feature without
-requiring an fsck.
-The tune2fs, dumpe2fs, and debugfs programs now support the new ext4
-default mount options settings which were added in 2.6.35.
-The e2fsck and dumpe2fs programs now support the new ext4 superblock
-fields which track where and when the first and most recent file
-system errors occurred.  These fields are displayed by dumpe2fs and
-cleared by e2fsck.  These new superblock fields were added in 2.6.36.
-Debugfs now uses a more concise format for listing extents in its
-stat command.  This format also includes the interior extent tree
-blocks, which previously was missing from stat's output for
-extent-based files.
-Debugfs has a new option, -D, which will request Direct I/O access of
-the file system.
-Mke2fs will skip initializing the inode table if a device supports
-discard and the discard operation will result in zero'ed blocks.
-Badblocks will now correctly backspace over UTF-8 characters when
-displaying its progress bar.  (Addresses Gentoo Bug #309909; Addresses
-Debian Bugs #583782 and #587834)
-E2freefrag will now display the total number of free extents.
-Resize2fs -P no longer requires a freshly checked filesystem before
-printing the minimum resize size.
-Fixed a floating point precision error in a binary tree search routine
-that can lead to seg fault in e2fsck and resize2fs.
-Fixed a bug in e2fsck where if both the original and backup superblock
-are invalid in some way, e2fsck will fail going back to the original
-superblock because it didn't close the backup superblock first, and
-the exclusive open prevented the file system from being reopened.
-Fixed a big in e2freefrag which caused getopt parsing to fail on
-architectures with unsigned chars.  (Addresses Gentoo Bug: #299386)
-Clarified an mke2fs error message so a missed common in an -E option
-(i.e., mke2fs -t ext4 -E stride=128 stripe-width=512 /dev/sda1")
-results in a more understandable explanation to the user.
-Mke2fs now displays the correct valid inode ratio range when
-complaining about an invalid inode ratio specified by the user.
-Mke2fs now understands the extended option "discard" and "nodiscard",
-and the older option -K is deprecated.  The default of whether
-discards are enabled by default can be controlled by the mke2fs.conf
-Mke2fs's handling of logical and physical sector sizes has been
-improved to reflect the fact that there will be some SSD's with 8k and
-16k physical sectors arriving soon.  Mke2fs will no longer force block
-size to be the physical sector size, since there will be devices where
-the physical sector size is larger than the system's page size, and
-hence larger than the maximal supported block size.  In addition, if
-the minimal and optimal io size are not exported by the device, and
-the physical sector size is larger than the block size, the physical
-sector size will be used to set the Raid I/O optimization hints in the
-E2fsck will now display a better, more specific error message when the
-user enters a typo'ed device name, instead of blathering on about
-alternate superblocks.
-Fixed various Debian Packaging Issues
-Updated/clarified man pages (Addresses Debian Bugs: #580236, #594004,
-#589345, #591083; Addresses Launchpad Bug: #505719)
-Update the Chinese, Chzech, Dutch, French, Germany, Indonesian,
-Polish, Swedish, and Vietnamese translations.
-Programmer's Notes
-Fix a dependency definition for the static and profiled blkid
-libraries which could cause compile failures in some configurations.
-(Addresses Debian Bug: #604629)
-Add support for Direct I/O in the Unix I/O access layer.
-Fixed a memory leak in the Unix I/O layer when changing block sizes.
-Fixed minor memory leaks in mke2fs.
-Added a new function to the ext2fs library, ext2fs_get_memalign().
-The tst_super_size test program will check to make sure the superblock
-fields are correctly aligned and will print them out so they can be
-manually checked for correctness.
-Fixed some makefile dependencies for test programs in lib/ext2fs.
-Reserved the feature flags and superblock fields needed for the Next3
-snapshot feature.
-Reserved the feature flags for EXT4_FEATURE_INCOMPAT_DIRDATA and

-E2fsprogs 1.41.14 (December 22, 2010)
-Fix spurious complaint in mke2fs where it would complain if the file
-system type "default" is not defined in mke2fs.conf.
-The resize2fs program will no longer clear the resize_inode feature
-when the number reserved group descriptor blocks reaches zero.  This
-allows for subsequent shrinks of the file system to work cleanly for
-flex_bg file systems.
-The resize2fs program now handles devices which are exactly 16T;

-E2fsck (and the libext2fs library) will not use the extended rec_len

-Programming notes
-E2fsprogs 1.41.13 would not compile on big-endian systems.  This has
-been fixed.  (Addresses Sourceforge Bug: #3138115)
-The ext2fs_block_iterator2() function passed an incorrect ref_offset
-to its callback function in the case of sparse files.  (Addresses
-Sourceforge Bug: #3081087)
-Fix some type-punning warnings generated by newer versions of gcc.
