Release Notes: This release fixes an fd leak to filters that often broke the parallelism of "-jN".
Release Notes: This release adds the -m capability to change the filters of a given btar file. Performance improvements (string manipulation). A -U option to filter only the index/deleted. The -H option has been fixed so that when extracting specific paths, it only attempts to delete files complying with the pattern.
Release Notes: Differential backups now account for deleted files. Small portability issues have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes two bugs in extraction: an fd leak on zero byte files and proper extraction of files bigger than 8.5GB.
Release Notes: This release fixes troubles with long file names when 'tar c | btar'. It avoids storing directories where no files changed in differential archives.
