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.

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 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 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.

Release Notes: In this version, new hosts now get displayed correctly in afd_ctrl dialog. The directory option "delete unknown files" now works correctly if the time was specified behind this option. A bug in the transfer log that sometimes did not show the number of files and bytes when an error occurred was fixed. The receive log now shows duplicated messages correctly. A new option, grib2wmo, was added to convert grib files to WMO container files. There were also new options, -m and -mr, added to show_stat.

Release Notes: This release adds a new option execd to delete the original file. Dialog dir_ctrl now shows the number of files and bytes in the directories and queue that are to be monitored. The assemble option now works correctly, as does specifying a group name together with a hostname. A problem where the remove_dir() function would call closedir() twice and crash was fixed, as was a bug in create_db() that cause some files to be deleted when reordering the hostnames.

  •  14 Dec 2001 09:06

  •  30 Oct 2001 11:28

Release Notes: It is now possible to configure AFD to send a STAT at certain intervals to keep the FTP control connection alive. It is now possible to resend files via the show_olog dialog even when the "age-limit" and/or "trans_rename" options are set. SCP1 support was improved so that it can rename files. The source code compiles under HP-UX 10.20 again. A bad rename bug was fixed. Compatibility with Lesstif was improved.

Release Notes: Fixed a memory leak in afd_ctrl dialog, the view_dc dialog now shows the directory options, and made appending of files with FTP safer, by checking the date of file as well, and not only the file name.
