Util-linux 2.26 Release Notes

 This version provides completely new sfdisk(8) command, the new version is
 based on libfdisk. If your use-cases depend on sfdisk(8) then it is strongly
 recommended to be careful and re-test your scripts. The new version supports
 MBR and GPT disk labels (SGI and SUN are also supported but no well tested).
 The new version does no more support some obscure MBR specific command line
 options and legacy CHS addressing.

 The library libblkid (and blkid(8) on command line) now uses the same UDF
 fields like Windows and another operations systems to get human readable
 UDF volume identifiers (LABEL= tag). This change maybe backwardly incompatible 
 for some UDF volumes.

 The command hwclock(8) uses the drift correction for all relevant operations
 and it is unnecessary to specify --adjuts on hwclock command line now.

 The command hwclock(8) does not automatically (re)calculate drift factor on
 --systohc to avoid several problem (ntpd with an '11 minute mode', etc.), but
 new command line option --update-drift has to be explicitly used to force
 hwclock(8) to update /etc/adjtime. 

 For more details see hwclock(8) man page.
