    1 
    2 version 1.0.1
    3 fix bug:
    4 - On interactive mode, checking if the two passphrases are the same fails something when stdin buffer isnt emptied before reading the first password.
    5 
    6 ","(comma) is not a valid mount point path. the cli prevents this but the GUI just fails without informing a user why. Added a dialog to inform a user
    7 when they select comma as a mount point.
    8 
    9 comma as a mount point is disallowed because it sits right next to "dot" button and most people(ie. me) usually press "."(dot) key to mean "present working directory"
   10 but will miss the key and press comma key and start wondering why things arent they way they are supposed to be.
   11 The comma key should have been on the other side of the keyboard!!!
   12

   32 version 4.1.0
   33 -- minor update, fix bugs comming from mishandling of files and paths with empty spaces in them.
   34

   43 -- The password dialog had a bug and did not reset properly when the previous operation involved opening a keyfile.
   44 -- Add an option to close all opened volumes with a single click.
   45 -- Created volumes with extX file systems now use 1% reserved space instead of the default 5%.

   58 version 4.3.2
   59 -- ext3/ext4 can not be mounted with user specified permissions and they use the permissions set when the volume was last mounted.
   60     This creates a problem on freshly created volumes because they always end up owned by root. This update fix the problem by setting
   61     permissions everytime a volume is opened in read/write mode. If a volume open with root as owner, then reopen the volume in read/write

   77 -- major cli interface change, run zulucrypt-cli --help for more info.
   78 -- normal users can not create volumes in system partitions but root user now can. system partition is defined as a partition
   79    with active entry(not commented out) in /etc/fstab and /etc/crypttab.

  241 -- try to silently solve problems caused by other tools mounting zuluCrypt's encryption mapper.
  242 -- add support for creating a "plain dm-crypt" volume at a "none zero offset".This type of volume is useful as a
  243    "poor man's version of a hidden volume feature in TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt".Best thing about this type of hidden
  244    volume is that the outer volume can be anything including an "exposed file system".Currently,only zuluMount-gui can
