I am pleased to announce the release of GNU mtools version 4.0.18

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:    (519K)   (411K)    (348K)

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).

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

Please email bugs or suggestions to <address@hidden>.

Improvements since the 4.0.17 release are:

        Fix for names of iconv encodings on AIX
        Fix mt_size_t on NetBSD
        Fixed compilation on Mingw
        Fixed doc (especially mformat)
        Fix mformat'ing of FAT12 filesystems with huge cluster sizes
        Minfo prints image file name in mformat command line if an image
        file name was given
        Always generate gzip-compressed RPMs, in order to remain
        compatible with older distributions
        Fixed buffer overflow with drive letter in mclasserase
