Hi all,

I've uploaded 1.6.0-pre1, which means it will be labelled "stable" soon.


Anyway: I've written a testing howto, in debug/tests/HOWTO.  Please
read/follow it!

* libparted/filesys.c (ped_file_system_open): now calls fs_type->ops->open
  on the probed geometry returned by fs_type->ops->probe.  If this doesn't
  lie within the geometry passed to ped_file_system_open, then we complain
  loudly.  Also, this means that:
  ped_geometry_test_inside (geom,
                            ped_file_system_probe_specific (fs->type, geom))
  is always true.
* doc/parted.texi doc/USER/Makefile.am doc/fdl.texi doc/COPYING.doc:
  replaced plaintext docs with texinfo versions.  This conversions was
  done by Richard M. Kreuter (thanks!)
* libparted/disk_gpt.c (gpt_probe, _is_pmbr_valid): needed a few
  PED_CPU_TO_LEXX conversions to be safe
* (swap_uuid_and_efi_guid, gpt_alloc, gpt_partition_new): Due to Intel
  madness, RFC-defined UUIDs and GUIDs and Intel's specification
  of efi_guid_t aren't quite the same.  Close, but no cigar...
  So, uuid_generate(uuid) gives a perfectly valid big-endian uuid, but needs
  to have some fields byte-swapped to be considered an efi_guid_t.  Likewise,
  an efi_guid_t needs to be byte-swapped back to a big-endian uuid prior to
  calling uuid_unparse() on it.
* libparted/linux.c (linux_refresh_close): only flush caches if there have
  been writes.
* updated po/nn.po (thanks Kjetil)
* debug/test/HOWTO: wrote/added
