I am pleased to announce the release of GNU mtools version 4.0.13.

GNU mtools is available for download from and the mirror sites worldwide (see for the list of those).

The signed sources can be obtained from and its world-wide
mirrors:    (477K)   (374K)

The same directory also contains pre-compiled Debian and RPM 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).

Since version 4.0.0 mtools now has full support for Unicode filenames.

For more information on mtools, including links to file downloads,
please see the mtools web page:

  - added missing byte-swap flag initialization in plain_io
  - manpages for lz, uz, tgz, mcomp and mxtar
