A new month has come and that means new releases of libblockdev and UDisks2 have come too. We are trying to stick to the golden rule of successful open-source projects – “Release early, release often.” – and even if there are no major changes and no new major features, we do regular releases every month. Usually the target date is the end of the month which then in reality means a new release is done at the beginning of the month that follows. And that is exactly what happened this time too. libblockdev-2.15 was released on December 1st and UDisks-2.7.5 on December 4th.
A new upstream version of UDisks2 was released on Thursday (July 3rd) — version 2.7.2. This is only a minor release and contains mostly bug fixes, but it has some new features, mostly for working with filesystems and partitions.
A new upstream version of UDisks2 was released on Friday (June 2nd) — version 2.7.0. People following the recent development of UDisks2 and our recent blog posts   should know that this is a big version bump which can only mean one thing: the pull request changing UDisks to use libblockdev where possible was merged! Which is almost 100 commits with changes.
