Changelog attached, Thomas wanted to add a patch before moving to core.
Util-linux-ng 2.18 Release Notes
The util-linux-ng package does not contain rdev(8), ramsize(8),
vidmode(8) and rootflags(8) anymore.
The fdisk(8) command does not use DOS-compatible mode and cylinders as display
units by default. The old deprecated DOS behavior could be enabled by 'c' and
'u' fdisk commands or from command line by '-c=dos -u=cylinders' options.
- this NEW LIBRARY is designed to be used in low-level utils like
mount(8) and /sbin/mount.<type> helpers as well as in some other
- the library API is still officially unstable. The library provides
fstab, mtab and mountinfo parser, routines for work with parsed
data and mount options, mtab locking, etc. The high-level API for
mount(2) is planned for the next major release. For more details see:
- the utils like mount(8) or umount(8) are not linked with the library
yet. This change is planned for util-linux-ng-2.19.
- this NEW COMMAND is a command line interface to the libmount library
for work with mountinfo, fstab and mtab files
- this NEW COMMAND is very simple wrapper around FIFREEZE/FITHAW ioctls
- this NEW COMMAND allows to change swaparea UUID and label
- supports new command line option "-i" to print I/O Limits
- supports new command line option "-n" to restrict probing functions to
defined list of superblock types (names).
- returns details from partition table (type, flags, uuid, ...)
- supports new command line option "-R/--reset-on-fork" to enable
- supports new command line option "-c" to switch off DOS mode
- uses 1MiB offset for the first partition
(all these changes are already in the release 2.17.2)
- supports new command line option "--predict" to predict what the RTC will
read at time given by the --date option based on the adjtime file.
- supports new command line option "-i/--iflag" to sets the specified bits
in the c_iflag word of the serial line.
fallocate(1), losetup(8) and mount(8):
- the options --offset, --length or --sizelimit support suffixes
(MiB, GiB, ...) and hex numbers
- supports new command line option "--fake" to avoid umount(2) syscall
