The UDisks project provides a daemon, tools and libraries to access and manipulate disks, storage devices and technologies.

This 2.9.0 release brings many changes to the daemon core, internal modularity and the libudisks2 library. No public API has been removed, there is a couple of deprecations however.

There's a major change in how and when D-Bus object properties are updated. As a general rule when a method call returns affected objects should now have their properties updated by that moment. This is an ongoing task and while majority of the daemon API has been covered, there are pending issues in some of the modules.

Configurable mount options is a new big feature for this release, allowing sysadmins to re-define default mount options for each filesystem type. Extensive documentation is available at http://storaged.org/doc/udisks2-api/latest/mount_options.html

Internal module API has been reworked, modules should now be enabled separately via the new EnableModule() call that also reports initialization failures. The old org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Manager.EnableModules() call has been deprecated.

Additional feature highlights:

  • building the daemon can now be disabled via configure switch, only libudisks2 will be built
  • removed the systemd mount cleanup service, mount state is now tracked separately for persistent and non-persistent mount points and cleanup of lingering persistent mount points is performed on daemon startup (e.g. on system boot)
  • new LVM-VDO integration, deprecated the standalone VDO module
  • added support for (un)locking BitLocker devices
  • libudisks2 now includes generated GDBus code for compiled-in modules, separate pkg-config files are provided as well

Full list of changes is available in the NEWS file.

The udisks project provides a daemon, tools and libraries to access and manipulate disks, storage devices and technologies.

This udisks-2.8.3 release brings many memory leak fixes with similar work done in libblockdev-2.22. While libblockdev version requirement remains unchanged, it's strongly recommended to use both releases together to get full coverage of the fixes.

Other notable changes include:

  • default and supported encryption types are now exposed on the org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Manager interface
  • minor org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Filesystem improvements related to updating properties upon method call return
  • various test fixes and improvements
  • translation updates
