Release Notes: Many bugs have been fixed. amrecover has improved handling of non-ASCII filenames in the index. This release works with tar 1.16 and exit status of 1. You can define a LASTSLOT in a chg-disk config file.
Release Notes: Many bugs were fixed, including a timeout waiting for ACK, an "illegal density" error with dump, a problem with parsing the configuration file for amrecover in IRIX, and a problem with compilation in Mac OS. contrib/sst was removed.
Release Notes: Defects found by Coverity scan and Klocwork K7 analysis tools have been fixed. This release works with GNU tar 1.15.91 and the gtar state file format. Open SSL encryption support Two new authentication methods: bsdtcp and bsdudp. An unlimited number of DLEs on a client with bsdtcp, RSH, and SSH authentication methods. The recovery process amrecover uses Secure API. The amoldrecover command is provided for compatibility with old Amanda releases.
Release Notes: OpenSSL encryption support was added. amrecover now uses a secure API. New authentication protocols were added. The name and location of the configuration file (amanda.conf) can be overridden with the -o option for Amanda commands. Binary path names (spaces in filenames) are now supported for file names in amanda.conf and disklist. Code The code is now clean of warnings detected by lint, and is 64-bit clean. Leaks found by using the valgrind tool were fixed.
Release Notes: Kerberos 4/5 and OpenSSH are now used for communication security and authentication. Symmetric/asymmetric encrytion algorithms (aespipe and gpg encryption) and custom encryption utilities can be used for data security. The ability to add custom compression tools was added. A user can use different compression algorithm for images, binaries, ASCII files, and so on. Dump images may now span multiple media volumes. Automatic tape labeling was implemented.
Release Notes: This release contains small bugfixes for Samba passwords. Amrecover has some fixes. Debugging files are timestamped for better debugging.
Release Notes: Dumptypes can be specialized in the disklist file. Amanda will never use more space than specified for a holding disk. A dump on a holding disk can spread multiple holding disks. Negative chunksizes are no longer supported. Chunksize is now 1 Gb by default. ufsdump -S is now supported on Solaris, and Samba 2.0.0 is now supported. A new `incronly' strategy was added, similar to skip-full, but allows manual scheduling of full backups. chg-scsi was ported to several platforms. See the changelog in the tarball for more details.
