Updated btrfs-progs packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The btrfs-progs packages provide user-space programs to create, check, modify, and correct any inconsistencies in a Btrfs file system.


The btrfs-progs packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.2, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version, including support for slashes in file system labels and new commands "btrfs-find-root", "btrfs-restore", and "btrfs-zero-log". This update also modifies the btrfs-progs utility, so that it is now built with the -fno-strict-aliasing method. (BZ#865600)
All users of btrfs-progs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
