      Release Notes: This release added support for xdelta compression, support for libcdio for reading the contents of CD/DVD/BD devices/images without mounting them, support for the no-dump file attribute, and an --ignore-no-dump option (see lsattr, chattr). A --datbase-index-keep-time command line/config option was added. An optional time range was implemented for the max-band-width and index-database-max-band-width options to support different limits depending on the date/time.

        Release Notes: This release re-adds the option --volume-size and fixes setting CD/DVD/BD volume size. It does not print passwords that may be included in the FTP specifier when creating/list/restore entries. barcontrol asks for the crypt password when restoring single archive entries. The URI parser will clear the port number if not set. A bug in ftplib has been fixed: listing a directory did not close the temporary file.

          Release Notes: Sub-directories are now created when storing to a file. Problems with creating parent directories, a possible infinite loop when executing external commands, the log-post-command, permissions for job files, the string parser, a null pointer exception in BARControl, and CD/DVD/BD write command were fixed. FTP transmission was improved. Usability of BARControl was improved, and it now asks for the crypt password. The stdout/stderr of external commands is now output in verbose mode. BARControl now displays warnings when the selection of part size/medium size/error correction codes may not fit.

            Release Notes: The jobs directory is created if it does not exist. File name editor drag and drop was fixed for barcontrol. barcontrol now asks for a password on restore. Reading file names that contain "\" or LF/CR was fixed. Discarding of the first character for archive target cd: or bd: was fixed for barcontrol. Error handling when calling an external tool for CD/DVD/BD was fixed. The documentation was improved: archive file name macros were added, more entries were added to the FAQ, and small fixes were made.

                Release Notes: The content of directories and sub-directories is no longer stored when a .nobackup or .NOBACKUP file exists. Hard links are now supported, along with new chunk types, HLN0, HENT, HNAM, and HDAT. A --dry-runthat performs all operations but does not compress, encrypt and store files, write incremental data lists, or write on CD/DVD/BD devices was added. A --compress-exclude option was added to disable compression for files, images, and hard links that match the specified pattern. A --differential option was added for differential storage. It is like --incremental, but incremental data is not updated.

                    Release Notes: An exception when running barcontrol under Windows and connecting to a Linux server was fixed.

Wrong bar binary and config paths were fixed in the SuSE, Redhat, Mandrake, and Fedora start scripts.
