This is just a maintenance release to catch up.

Ah, and Diversion 4.2.0 is still not available. I refuse to give an ETA ;)

@thelonelycoder , сan you add the ability to format the first drive partition to NTFS/FAT/EXFAT? I would like to have the first partition with the ability to r/w it in Windows/etc., and on the second section EXT4 for Entware. Of course, I can do it by third-party means, but I would like to do it without "unnecessary squats". Thank you.

Is that an OCD matter or do you have a particular reason for the order?

It was a Windows "feature", only being able to "see" the first partition of multi-partition removable storage. This is no longer the case for recent versions of Windows 10 but is still applicable to earlier versions and older versions of Windows (like Windows 7).

I see, I was wondering why as my fully up-to date Workhorse has no problems mounting a ext4/NTFS formatted device. It would ask to format the ext partition though which one can simply click away.

I don't remember @ColinTaylor why we (or I ;)) decided to only allow ext as the first partition. My guess is that I wanted to force users to use ext and then be able to install all the goodies instead of users just creating a NTFS or FAT partition and then get mad or confused that scripts will not install.

I don't remember either. I think the logic was "if you're only going to have one partition it must be ext* anyway". Trying to write conditional question/answer dialogues for multiple partitions they may be ext* formatted was awkward.

Thanks for the HD disk size update!
You were the one that triggered some things. Users will have to thank you for that.
I specifically bought an SSD closer than yours to the max size to test it.

I think you nailed it. Be that the specific reason or not, your logic convinces me to have done the right thing.
Windows users ought to be up to date with updates. That includes the consideration which version is used. Windows XP or 7 are long since an absolute no-no to use for security reasons.

I'm confused, the amtm update itself does not require a reboot.
for some reason, after I updated, my DNS lookups were taking quite a while longer (and in some cases failing). (It possibly might have been the entware update I did right after- there was an unbound component IIRC)

Indeed, I second that great job! And no ETA is required. It gets here when it gets here.

For the swap file is the maximum size still 2 gb?

Many (most?) scripts require a 2GB swap file.
