|SUBJECT ||Subject: [Hangout - NYLXS] GNU mtools 4.0.37 released
I am pleased to announce the release of GNU mtools version 4.0.37
GNU mtools is available for download from
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mtools and the mirror sites worldwide (see
http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html for the list of those).
The sources can be obtained from ftp.gnu.org and its world-wide mirrors:
The same directory also contains pre-compiled Debian packages.
Mtools is a collection of utilities to access MS-DOS disks from GNU
and Unix without mounting them, to change FAT-specific file attributes
(hidden, archive, system), and to format FAT media.
Mtools supports W32 style long file names, FAT32, OS/2 Xdf disks and
2m disks (store up to 1992k on a high density 3 1/2 disk). Mtools also
includes mpartition, a simple partitioning programing. It is also a
convenient tool to work with disk image files (thanks to the -i flag).
For more information on mtools, including links to file downloads,
please see the mtools web page: http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools
Please email bugs or suggestions to .
Improvements since the 4.0.36 release are:
- Removed mclasserase commands, which doesn't fit the coding
structure of the rest of mtools
- Add support to -i option to mcd
- Document -i flag in mtools.1
- Fix a missing command error in floppyd_io.c
