Yes, that is true...
However is the mfastboot tool published by Motorola? Google searching has only lead to forum postings such as this, where someone shares the version they have for others to download...
However is there an official motorola development site where they offer these utilities, either as binaries or as source?
Is there a single official location where developers can check for news and or updates on mfastboot, that offers source or binaries for the latest stable&test builds and possibly older versions?
Basically just trying to find where the program is actually officially released, rather then just passed along versions (or if that is even the case).... Most linux utilities will have an official kind of "homebase" .. For instance in the samsung world a lot of flashing is done with odin, who's linux counterpart is heimdall http://glassechidna.com.au/heimdall/
Edit: FOUND IT! ok maybe its well know, but for those like me who didn't... mfastboot is offered by motorola and bundled with the recovery images they offer here: https://motorola-global-portal.custh...ecovery-images
Looks like you have to have an account, and request the image, and fastboot will be bundled with it
After downloading the image for your device:
Unzip the image.
Put your device in fastboot mode.
NOTE: You must use the Motorola fastboot utility to flash (included in the Darwin/, Linux/ or Windows/ directory). Please do NOT use the Android fastboot utility
So that is the official source for the latest version, but I doubt they update too often... and I am sure its OK to use the mfastboot offered here. (I was just interested to know/note the official source, I think its at least semi important)
