    Release Notes: This version adds support for environment variables, such as $HOME, in definition files thus greatly expanding what definition files can cover. Also, a bug in the wildcard system that wouldn't allow you to restore files that had been originally found using a wildcard entry has been fixed. When restoring, 'v' now shows both files so you can compare before you restore. All module options have been moved to cs.conf as well, meaning that you no longer have to edit the module scripts. Finally, a few more configsets have been added to the default locations.def plus a few that others have submitted.

      Release Notes: This release contains mainly bugfixes for 0.5.2, which had some problems with the encryption. Mainly, 0.5.2 would not run at all unless you had Crypt::CipherSaber, even if you weren't using the encryption. Checking for the module now occurs earlier in program execution to prevent unencrypted archives being left around if you try and encrypt something without Crypt::CipherSaber.

        Release Notes: This version adds support for encryption, using the CipherSaber encryption system. The logging feature has also been extended quite a bit with a lot more information being logged including the definition file in use for scans, whether archives were mailed or FTPed anywhere, and details of restores.

          Release Notes: confstore now has a logging feature. It can log every backup you make in one log file. Each entry in the log file includes: the exact date of the scan/backup, a list of all files found or not found, the name of the resulting archive, and the MD5 checksum of the archive. This checksum is quite useful for ensuring the integrity of archives before restoring or using them in the future.

            Release Notes: This is a big rewrite of much of the older code. The processing of arguments is a lot more efficient (Getopt::Long is now used) The menu mode has been abolished (it was pretty useless, and just meant some annoying prompts sometimes got in your way). There is a new verbose option which can be controlled with the -v option or by setting the default verbose level in cs.conf. The confstore modules are now true modules and are loaded like any other Perl module.

              Release Notes: This release implements the master archive feature. This is an optional feature that chronologically stores all configuration you have ever backed up in a master archive. This version also has improved documentation, general code cleanup, and some additional error checking.

                Release Notes: This version includes email support so you can now mail your archives to an email account for safe storage. It also fixes a bug which made the "Upload to FTP?" prompt not respond to 'y'.

                  Release Notes: FTP support has been added, so you can now upload archives to an FTP server after creation. A "v" option has been added to the restore process so the user can view the file in question before restoring it. Certain prompts are now while loops, which prevents NULL values from being passed. A new flag, -cf, has been added so users can specify a configset when restoring from the command line.

                    Release Notes: This version finally adds the ability to restore configuration from archives previously created with confstore. Wildcards in definition files are now also supported.

                      Release Notes: This release has many added features and fixes. Support for date stamping archives, support for specifying folders in definition files, a new definition file specifically for OpenBSD, and support for a further comptype (none) which leaves the archive in .tar format with no further compression. Archives now extract to their archive name (e.g. Backup-2003-09-02 will extract to a folder of the same name) and full paths are now supported. There are many smaller changes. This release only checks the paths for the tools you are using.
