Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A bug in partition detection for some SD/MMC card readers (those using the sdhci driver) was preventing correct detection by HAL, breaking automatic mounting/unmounting on card nsertion/removal. Another bug was preventing correct mounting of LUKS-encrypted removable media. This update fixes these bugs and also provides compatibility with D-Bus 1.0.
