I have made yet another release of hfsutils, version 1.19b.

This package is a year in the making, and is apparently becoming quite
popular. It has proven to be a rather stable set of tools, and to that end I
plan to re-release version 1.19b as version 2.0 in the next few weeks if I
hear that all is well with this version. Note this means I will no longer
consider this beta software.

Significant changes from 1.18b to 1.19b include:

  * A problem which prevented large volumes from being properly formatted
    by hfs_format() has been fixed. This should also allow the library to
    correctly manipulate large volumes in certain other cases.

  * The code has been adapted to work with Tcl 7.6 and Tk 4.2.

  * The `hls' and `hdir' programs have been re-written, and now support
    most of the usual UNIX `ls' options.

  * The general documentation has been updated.

You can find the current release here:

Feedback is always appreciated. I have tried to include a few more portability
enhancements in this release as well, based on observations people have sent
me.

Cheers,
