Util-linux-ng 2.17.1 Release Notes
==================================

Release highlights
------------------

fdisk:
- supports new command line option "-c" to disable DOS-compatible mode from
command line.

The DOS-compatible mode is DEPRECATED and will be disabled by default
in the next major release. Currently, the DOS mode is enabled by default
for backward compatibility only.

The cylinders as display units are DEPRECATED. It's recommended to use
"-u" command line option or "u" fdisk command to use sectors as display
units.

Note that the new support for 4K-sector disks is useless in DOS-compatible
mode. The fdisk command prints warning(s) when startup in DOS mode.
