Version 1.9.4 of Linux NTFS Tools and Library is out. In reading the "changes" on the Freshmeat site, this is turning into a very powerful toolset. Hopefully it'll make it into new distro's and the various forensics toolkits (if it already hasn't).
Please note that the programmers (all three of them) are looking for help, mostly in the form of secondary documentation and web site support. See the SourceForge site for more information.
