* Sat Sep 13 2014
- Update to v0.3.2
  * The code changes are moderate. Mainly changes on metadata, buildsystem and manpage ....
  * Some problems with potential endless loops and segfaults been fixed.
  * New is support for matlab-V5 files in the magic-function and a interface for
    a private magic signature file.  The interface was necessary because the
    activity on the FILE project results in many chances and more and more
    support of new file signatures. This has a negative impact on speed,
    accuracy and result of the magic-function of ext4magic. This interface is
    provided for future use and is designed to support a only for ext4magic
    optimized magic pattern file.

    ext4magic is file recovery tool for the ext4 filesystem.

  up to 16TByte filesystem size. 64Bit file systems are not implemented.
  Not tested at the moment:
  - the new library releases form last 2 Weeks libmagic and libext2fs
  - file systems written with new Kernel (only testet written with 2.6 Kernel)
  - BigEndian CPUs not testet very extensively
