hfs_fs is a kernel loadable module implementing the Macintosh HFS
filesystem for Linux kernel versions 2.0.1 and newer.  The current
version is fully read-write.

I am pleased to announce that version 0.8.3 of hfs_fs is now available
for immediate download from the HFS for Linux Page at
<http://www-sccm.Stanford.EDU/~hargrove/HFS/>.

It is also available (or soon will be) from Sunsite (and its many
mirrors) in <ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/ALPHA/hfs/>.

This version has the following user-visible changes from 0.8.2:
	+ Can now mount Apple's bootable CDROMs.
	+ More robust when dealing with corrupted filesystems.
	+ Will now compile without MODVERSIONS configured into the kernel.

VERSIONS 0.8 AND 0.8.1 CONTAINED A BUG THAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THE LOSS
OF BLOCKS WHEN FRAGMENTED FILES WERE DELETED.  IF YOU USED THESE
VERSIONS TO DELETE FILES THEN YOU SHOULD RUN EITHER Norton Utilities
OR Disk First Aid UNDER MacOS TO RECOVER ANY LOST BLOCKS.  USERS OF
PREVIOUS VERSIONS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO UPGRADE IMMEDIATELY.

For those of you running AppleShare servers on your Linux machine
(Netatalk or CAP), this software is a perfect way to mount Macintosh
CDROMs on your Linux machine for export to your Macs.
