Release Notes: This release has an option that allows it to mount a pseudo-filesystem (like /proc) to control the behavior of the Chiron filesystem being mounted, allowing it to show and change the status of the replicas. Dynamically generated Nagios plugin scripts are also provided. The howto and man page were updated. A a bug that made ChironFS fail to determine the correct path to the program that manages its control filesystem has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release integrates patches porting ChironFS to FreeBSD and NetBSD, and changes the debug code on *BSD versions to get the same system information that the Linux version gets. It is needed because the next ChironFS release will need that info in order to resynchronize failed replicas.
Release Notes: A vulnerability where an unprivileged user was able to touch a file which it did not have the rights to write was fixed along with a readlink bug where the number of bytes of the linked filename was being incorrectly reported. An issue in function access where the ruid and rgid of the caller process was not checked, but rather that of the mounting user was fixed. A memory leak was fixed.
Release Notes: This release changed hash table functions and sizing and improved range checks. ulimit handling was improved. An incorrect error message was fixed and more detailed error messages were provided. A bug where a chunk of memory was being freed two times when, in mount time, the user supplied an inexistent replica path was fixed. The howto was updated.
Release Notes: A vulnerability has been fixed where files created a user other than the user that mounted ChironFS were owned by the mounting user and not the file creator. An experimental fix for a failure to exclude all files when doing massive delete ("rm -Rf" on directories with thousands of files). A bug that prevented using logfile-relative pathnames has been fixed. A prioritization system has been implemented, modifying the simple round-robin that made the load balance on read operations, and improving performance when some replicas are significantly slower than others. A memory leak has been fixed.
Release Notes: A bug with fsync that made PostgreSQL 8.2.4 panic on startup and prevented vim from saving files was fixed. It was a wrong return value of the function giving to the application a false negative. An installation issue of the man page when using the source tarball version was fixed.
Release Notes: A problem with mknod was fixed. A mismatch in the readdir function when testing if the replica is disabled was fixed. It was using a wrong index variable. Lock control and reopening of the log file were added, so when you logrotate there will be no need to restart (remount) ChironFS. ChironFS now automatically calls FUSE using the direct_io option to avoid redundant disk caching.
Release Notes: False positives in the failure log file when creating directories were fixed. Wrong permissions when creating directories were fixed.
Release Notes: Various memory leaks were fixed. A bug in the mount procedure was fixed, and this release can use relative paths. There are fixes for invalid symlinks in the 1.0RC3 tar file.
