Release Notes: This release implements fetching files via SFTP. sendfile() support has been added for Linux only. A new email option 'file name is target' has been added.

Release Notes: This release adds support for sending files via SFTP. Duplicate checks can now be done on a per-host basis. Hosts can be put in a group to share one transfer rate limit value.

  •  15 Dec 2005 22:53

Release Notes: A problem where files that had dates in the future where deleted immediatly when age-limit option was set was fixed. When sending HTTP request, the header may not contain empty lines. The locking error which allowed jobs to be handled twice was corrected. When opening the job details window it will only resize this window and not afd_ctrl window. The speed was increased for initial visualizing of afd_ctrl and mon_ctrl dialog. An option to set the default SMTP server and From: line was added in AFD_CONFIG.

  •  19 Aug 2005 06:13

Release Notes: This release adds the ability to retrieve files via HTTP from a remote host, TLS/SSL support for FTP and HTTP, a transfer rate limit for all protocols, a new log file to show what AFD does with a file, support for multiple DIR_CONFIGs, and build support for GNU autoconfig and automake.

  •  25 Jul 2005 01:50

Release Notes: This release fixed an error in FIFO size calculation that prevented the program from running correctly on 64-bit systems. In FTP ASCII mode, the existence of carriage returns is now checked instead of blindly adding them.

  •  24 Mar 2005 08:04

Release Notes: In the previous version a directory name buffer was released too early, causing amg to always crash when there were any unfinished jobs after an unclean shutdown. When initializing variables for bursting, age_limit was sometimes reset incorrectly, causing files to be deleted due to age, even though those files actually had no age limit. The speed of the show_queue dialog was considerably improved.

  •  23 Nov 2004 05:40

Release Notes: When the age-limit option is set and the system is under high load, it can throw away files even though the age limit has not yet been reached. When edit_hc removes a host, it only compares the host name to its length but not the terminating character. Thus, deleting a host could lead to the removal of the wrong host if the hostname is longer but has the same beginning as the one to be deleted. These problems have been fixed.

  •  24 Jun 2004 07:54

Release Notes: Log files are shown correctly again. Files that are to be sent may not be deleted even if old file time is set to zero. A bug in afd.users that could lead to some processes hanging in a loop was fixed. The fd process released a lock too early, which could cause a failover to the secondary host and never go back to the main host. On 64-bit systems, the delete_log process could crash due to a missing cast. A port to Mac OS 10.3 was made. The dialogs can now be called with the -p option to load a certain profile.

  •  16 Dec 2003 02:53

Release Notes: This release fixes a locking bug. Permissions checking has been made more secure, and a bug that could cause garbage to be written to the internal database has been fixed.

  •  16 Oct 2003 06:53

Release Notes: If a host was removed, it was not shown correctly in the afd_ctrl dialog. A bug where AFD could end up in an endless loop was fixed. A small memory leak in the mon_ctrl dialog was fixed. afd_mon and afdd can no longer be started twice. Dir_check now checks if time goes backwards. If old_file_time is 0, incoming dot files are not deleted. Source and target directories may now also contain spaces. An option to send log output to a mail address was added. A mailing list for AFD users now exists.
