I am pleased to announce the release of GNU mtools version 4.0.42

GNU mtools is available for download from
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mtools and the mirror sites worldwide (see
http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html for the list of those).

The sources can be obtained from ftp.gnu.org and its world-wide mirrors:

  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mtools/mtools-4.0.42.tar.gz    (533K)
  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mtools/mtools-4.0.42.tar.bz2   (432K)
  http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mtools/mtools-4.0.42.tar.lz    (374K)

The same directory also contains pre-compiled Debian packages.

Mtools is a collection of utilities to access MS-DOS disks from GNU
and Unix without mounting them, to change FAT-specific file attributes
(hidden, archive, system), and to format FAT media.

Mtools supports W32 style long file names, FAT32, OS/2 Xdf disks and
2m disks (store up to 1992k on a high density 3 1/2 disk). Mtools also
includes mpartition, a simple partitioning programing. It is also a
convenient tool to work with disk image files (thanks to the -i flag).

For more information on mtools, including links to file downloads,
please see the mtools web page: http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools

Please email bugs or suggestions to <info-mto...@gnu.org>.

Improvements since the 4.0.41 release are:
        - Added postcmd attribute in drive description to allow to
          execute "device release" code automatically at end of
          command in cases where this is needed
        - Code cleanup (unneeded functions, initializations, added
          comments to unobvious code, obsolete stuff in Makefile)
        - signedness cleanup about directory entries
