* Sat Aug 07 2021 Andreas Stieger <>
  - mtools 4.0.35:
    * Fix cluster padding at end of file in batch mode

    * Fix support for partitions
    * Add support for image files on command line to mcat
  - includes changes from 4.0.32:
    * Simplify algorithm that choses filesystem parameters for
      format, and align it more closely with what Win7 does
    * Fix mformatting XDF when XDF not explicitly specified on
      mformat command line
    * easier way to enter sizes on mformat command line
      (mformat -C -T 1440K)
    * For small sizes, mformat assumes floppy geometries
      (heads 1 or 2, tracks 40 or 80)
    * Handle attempts to mformat too small filesystems more
    * Enable minfo to print out additional mformat command line
      parameters, if the present filesystem uses non-default
      values for these

      to unmapped sectors

  - patches unversioned; makes update and reviews easier
    * mtools-4.0.18-fat-bits.diff -> mtools-fat-bits.diff
    * mtools-4.0.18-conf.diff -> mtools-conf.diff
    * mtools-4.0.18-aliasing.diff -> mtools-aliasing.diff
    * mtools-4.0.18-prototypes.diff -> mtools-prototypes.diff
    * mtools-4.0.18-autoconf.diff -> mtools-autoconf.diff
* Sat Oct 27 2018
  - Update to 4.0.19:
    * Fix for short file names starting with character 0xE5
    * mpartition: Partition types closer to what Microsoft uses
    * mformat: figure out LBA geometry as last resort if geometry is unspecified

  - do not build in parallel as it fails
* Fri Apr 27 2018
  - Disable floppyd support. Floppyd is a daemon allowing remote X
    clients to access floppies attached to e.g. thin clients. As it
    uses X authentication, it pulls in X libraries.
* Tue Feb 13 2018
  - Do not BuildRequire metapackage xorg-x11-devel
