  * documentation updates
  * test updates

btrfs-progs-4.4 (2016-01-18)
  User visible changes:
    * mkfs.btrfs --data dup

  People asked about duplicating data on a single device for a long time. There
  are no technical obstacles preventing that, so it got enabled with a warning
  about potential dangers when the device will not do the duplicated copies. See
  mkfs.btrfs section DUP PROFILES ON A SINGLE DEVICE.

    * support balance filters added/enhanced in linux 4.4
      * usage=min..max -- enhanced to take range
      * stripes=min..max -- new, filter by stripes for raid0/10/5/6
      * limit=min..max -- enhanced to take range
  Note: due to backward compatibility, the range maximum for 'usage' is not
  inclusive as for the others, to keep the same behaviour as usage=N .

    * manual pages enhanced (btrfs, mkfs, mount, filesystem, balance)
    * error messages updates, rewordings -- some fstests may break due to that
    * added support for free-space-tree implementation of space cache -- this
      requires kernel 4.5 and is not recommended for non-developers yet
    * btrfs filesystem usage works with mixed blockgroups

  Other:
    * installation to /usr/local -- this has unintentionally changed during
      conversion to autotools in 3.19
    * check: fix a false alert where extent record has wrong metadata flag
    * improved stability on fuzzed/crafted images when reading sys array in
      superblock
    * build: the 'ar' tool is properly detected during cross-compilation
    * debug-tree: option -t understands ids for tree root and chunk tree
    * preparatory work for btrfs-convert rewrite
    * sparse, gcc warning fixes
    * more memory allocation failure handling
    * cleanups
    * more tests

btrfs-progs-4.2.1 (2015-09-20)
  * fix an off-by-one error in cross-stripe boundary check
    * if nodesize was 64k, any metadata block was reported as crossing,
      this leads to mkfs failure for example due to "no free blocks
      found"
    * for other nodesizes, if the end of the metadata block was 64k
      aligned, it was incorrectly reported by fsck
  * convert: don't write uninitialized data to image
  * image:
    * don't loop with option -t0
