    - Fixed checking permissions when Posix ACLs are compiled in but not enabled
    - Disabled option remove_hiberfile on read-only mounts
    - Implemented an extended attribute to get/set EAs
    - Avoid full runlist updating in more situations
    - Update ctime after setting an ACL
    - Use MFT record 15 for the first extent to MFT:DATA
    - Ignore the sloppy mount option (-s)
    - Implemented FITRIM (fstrim) ioctl
    - Reengineered the compression algorithm

Changes to ntfsprogs:

    - Return success from ntfsprogs utilities with options –version and the like
