Um, sorry, I forgot to push out the tag. I was going to send the
announcement to the list, but got caught up with other things.
One of those things is apparently we have a bug which is causing the
regression test suite to fail on big endian systems, including s390x
and powerpc (although not ppc64el, naturally). I'm working on
getting Harshad access to Debian's porter boxes, so he can debug it
directly. He spotted one bug already (where a le16_to_cpu should have
been le32_to_cpu in e2fsck/journal.c:822), but there is still an
incorrect block bitmap checksum after a fc replay which is causing
j_recover_fast_commit to fail.
In any case, yes, these releases are official, are up on kernel.org.
I've pushed out the tag for v1.46.0. When we fix the BE fast commit
bug, I'll release e2fsprogs v1.46.1. (There's also a configure script
bug which causes build failures on systems w/o FUSE which is already
fixed in the git tree that will be included in v1.46.1.)
