    2 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3 28/6  2020 2.7.0    Compressing man-page with gzip --no-name for
    4                     reproducibility.
    5                     Added support to run on macOS/OS X
    6                     Added NT6.0 FAT32 boot record (Win7/8/10)
    7                     Added NT6.0 EXFAT boot record (Win8/10)
    8                     Updated partition information feature for EXFAT and
    9                     NTFS and also enabled missing FAT16 support.
   10                     Added X/Open7 POSIX.1-2008 definition to prevent
   11                     compile warnings in identify.c and exfat.c source
   12                     code caused by the fileno function.
   13                     Removed support to alter OEM ID of NTFS boot records
   14                     since this makes for an unmountable partition.
   15                     Fixed error in Makefile where debug build didn't work.
   16                     Changed Makefile to support install on Mac/BSD/Linux.
   17                     Updated french, german and swedish man pages.
   18                     Updated french, german and swedish po files.
   19                     Improved partition device and start sector detection on
   20                     FreeBSD. Implemented full support for OpenBSD by adding
   21                     missing code for disk and partition information detection
   22                     and enabled smart select which wasn't functional.
   23 
   24 
   25 17/3  2019 2.6.0    No changes, only marked as stable version.
   26 
   27 27/2  2016 2.5.3    Added french man page and translation.
   28 
   29 16/1  2016 2.5.2    Added german man page,
   30                     added support for Grub2 and Grub4Dos MBR,
   31                     added support for KolibriOS MBR and FAT32 boot record,
   32                     added support for ReactOS MBR, FAT32 and FAT16 BR,
   33                     added support for Rufus MBR,
   34                     added experimental support for large sectors ( > 512),
   35                     now possible to alter OEM ID of FAT and NTFS boot records.
   36                     now possible to alter Windows Disk Signature in MBR.
   37 
   38 26/9  2015 2.5.1    Added support to run on OpenBSD,
   39                     added german translation.
   40 
   41  5/1  2015 2.5.0    Added support to run on FreeBSD.
   42 
   43  1/1  2015 2.4.1    Added support for FAT32 PE boot record.
   44 
   45 24/5  2014 2.4.0    Added support for syslinux GPT MBR.
   46                     Updated syslinux mbr to version 6.02.
   47 
   48  1/4  2012 2.3.0    Added experimental support for NTFS boot record. This
   49                     functionality is mostly useful to identify Windows 7 NTFS
   50                     boot records. Writing an NTFS Windows 7 boot record will
   51                     most likely not be of much use.
   52 
   53 22/1  2011 2.2.1    Modified Makefile to recreate directories lost by CVS
   54                     Now also doing a sanity check before only writing BPB
   55 
   56 13/5  2010 2.2.0    Added support for large disk image files. This version
   57                     is now considered stable as the BPB problem has had a
   58                     workaround since version 2.1.5.
   59 
   60 14/3  2010 2.1.5    Added support for manually setting the number of heads
   61                     in BPB
   62 
   63 3/10  2009 2.1.4    Win 7 and Vista MBR added
   64                     Added copyright notice to source files
   65 
   66 30/12 2007 2.1.3    Makefile now supports DESTDIR
   67 
   68 20/11 2005 2.1.2    Corrected spelling of Gürkan Sengün in man-page and
   69                     CONTRIBUTORS file.
   70                     Added a FAQ.
   71                     Renamed sv_SE.po to sv.po to fix bug described at
   72                     http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=336813
   73                     FreeDOS FAT16 and FAT32 boot records added.
   74 
   75 3/8  2005  2.1.1    Now the -p switch also writes the number of heads in BPB.
   76                     Modified Makefile to work with newer version of gcc.
   77                     Unfortunately it no longer works with older versions of 
   78                     gcc as the output from the switch -MM has changed.
   79 
   80 26/6 2005  2.1.0    Now ms-sys is able to identify an ms-dos MBR with the
   81                     undocumented F2 instruction.
   82                     Fixed bug in Makefile which make Makefile fail to install
   83                     files unless target directories already exists.
   84 
   85 5/6  2004  2.0.0    Now ms-sys should compile cleanly also with a 2.6 Linux
   86                     kernel based distribution.
   87 
   88 21/3 2004  1.1.3    Added switch -p to write needed partition information
   89                     which might be missing when some format programs are
   90                     used. The program now supports command line switch
   91                     concatenation, i e "ms-sys -f2 file" instead of
   92                     "ms-sys -f -2 file".
   93 
   94 16/2 2004  1.1.2    Unofficial contributed version with support for new
   95                     MBRs and better MBR recognition. Instead of completing
   96                     the work to make this an official release I choose to
   97                     merge it into my ongoing work.
   98 
   99 4/1  2004  1.1.1    Now compiles even if libintl.h is missing
  100                     Replaced the -k switch with -l (--wipelabel) with the
  101                     inverted functionality. This functionality was also
  102                     implemented for FAT12 and FAT16.
  103 
  104 20/9 2003  1.1.0    DOS FAT16 boot record added
  105                     NT FAT32 boot record added
  106 
  107 23/2 2003  1.0.2    Documentation update, man-page added
  108 
  109 9/8 2002   1.0.1    Fixed problem compiling sv_SE.po with newer versions of
  110                     msgfmt
  111 
  112 4/8 2002   1.0      First public release. Documentation updated with
  113                     SourceForge addresses for web and email contact.
