BH Format is intended to be a compatible replacement for Format
version 40 with important additions:

* It can perform low-level formats (or fake formats, as they usually are)
  on drives larger than 4 GB.

* It will warn you if the device to be formatted is misconfigured or if
  your file-system or if your disk is too large for your current device
  driver or file-system to handle.

* It allows you to specify file-system type (DosType) and device flags
  directly.  This will be particularly useful in conjunction with firth-
  coming improvements to Francis Swift's XFS package.

* It can create a default disk icon, following the same rules as the
  DefIcons program from NewIcons does.

It currently lacks localisation, some error reporting code, and good
documentation.  However, full source code is included and licensed
under the GNU GPL, so perhaps I can get some help with this...

Version 43.4 fixes 6 bugs, none of which would cause data loss.  The
archive also includes the file design.txt, which was missing from the
last version.

Please send bug reports, success reports, fixes and improvements to
me.
