+E2fsprogs 1.40.5 (January 27, 2008)
+===================================
+
+Fix a potential overflow big in e2image if the device name is too
+long.
+
+Mke2fs will now create new filesystems with 256 byte inodes and the
+ext_attr feature flag by default. This allows for much better future
+compatibity with ext4 and speeds up extended attributes even on ext3
+filesystems.
+
+Teach e2fsck to ignore certain "safe" filesystem features which are
+set automatically by the kernel. Having the kernel set features
+automagically behind the user's back is a bad idea, and we should try
+to break the kernel of this habit, especially for the newer ext4
+feature flags. But for now, we will try to avoid needless full checks
+which can annoy users who are doing fresh installs.
+
+Add support in tune2fs and mke2fs for making a filesystem as being "ok
+to be used with test kernel code". This will be needed for using test
+filesystems with the latest ext4 kernel code.
+
+Change e2fsck -fD so that it sorts non-htree directories by inode
+numbers instead of by name, since that optimizes performances much
+more significantly. (Addresses-Sourceforge-Feature-Request: #532439)
+
+If e2image fills the disk, fix it so it exits right away instead of
+spewing large numbers of error messages.
+(Addresses-Sourceforge-Feature-Request: #606508)
+
+If ftruncate64() is not available for resize2fs, let it use ftrucate()
+instead, but have it check to see if the size would get truncated, and
+skip calling ftruncate in that case.
+
+Add support for detecting HFS+ filesystems in the blkid library.
+
+Add supprt in the blkid library for ext4/ext4dev filesystems.
+
+Fix a bug in blkid where it could die on a floating point exception
+when presented with a corrupt reiserfs image.
+
+Fix blkid's handling of ntfs UUID's so that leading zeros are printed
+such that UUID string is a fixed length.
+
+Add sample python bindings for the uuid library to the contrib
+directory. (Addresses-Sourceforge-Patches: #778817)
+
+Fix debugfs's 'lsdel' command so it uses ext2fs_block_iterate2 so it
+will work with large files. (Addresses Sourceforge Feature Request:
+#1257500 and Sourceforge Support Request: #1253511)
+
+Allow the debugfs 'undel' command to undelete an inode without linking
+it to a specific destination directory, since this might require
+allocating blocks that could overwrite some yet-to-be-recovered
+deleted files. (Addresses-Sourceforge-Feature-Request: #967141)
+
+Update Swedish translations from the Translation Project.
+
+Programmer's Notes:
+-------------------
+
+Fix configure handling of --sbindir (which should rarely be used, but
+someone did complain, so let's fix it). (Addresses Sourceforge Bug:
+#498381)
+
+Updated e2fsprogs.spec file to include a new uuidd package
+
+Use pkg-config to determine where to find the devmapper library so we
+can find out where it is located on different distributions.
+
+Fix Makefile race so that "make -j3 distclean" works correctly
+
+Fix portability problems on non-Linux/non-Hurd/non-Masix systems,
+especially on MacOS X systems. (Addresses Sourceforge Bugs: #1861633,
+#1819034, #1863819)
+
+Fixed spelling mistakes, typos, and otherwise clarified man pages.
+
+Fixed various Debian packaging issues --- see debian/changelog for
+details. (Addresses Debian Bugs: #459403, #459475, #459614)
+
+Remove the --enable-dynamic-static configure option, and build e2fsck
+dynamically by default. If the user wants e2fsck.static, he/she will
+need to build it via "make -C e2fsck e2fsck.static"
+
+Fix various build warnings due to missing prototypes.
