Release Notes: This release mainly contains two fixes. The first bug was located in the sparse file detection mechanism, leading a file containing a very specific string just before a hole to fail being backed up, with dar reporting "CRC error" at testing time. This same bug also caused "CRC error" to be reported at archive merging time. The second was located in the dar_manager database code, which led to database corruption. The fix avoids further corruption and also cleans up existing databases which have been corrupted by that bug.
Release Notes: Release 2.4.9 brings several minor fixes. It fixes a bug in dar 2.4.x releases which led dar, in certain circumstances, to save hard-linked inodes even when files had not changed since the archive of reference was done (differential backup). The "security warning" has been restricted to only show for plain files. This release fixes a Segfault met when adding to a dar_manger database an archive having an empty string as a basename. It modifies dar_manager to consider ctime in addition to mtime for data timestamps, resulting in fewer warnings about mis-ordered archives in a database.
Release Notes: This release brings several bugfixes concerning: memory management, a backward compatibility problem with dar_xform and old archives (older than 2.4.0) and a crash met while creating an archive with on-fly isolation. It also brings some acceleration while listing the contents of a database, and improves dar behavior when reading a corrupted encrypted archive.
Release Notes: This release fixes an application crash, a compilation problem under Solaris, and several minor bugs.
Release Notes: This release brings a fix on SPARC systems that lead the application to crash due to an alignment problem in CRC calculation routine (a problem only seen on Solaris). For all systems, it also brings a fix to the bug that let an interrupted archive be usable for further differential backup only in "sequential reading mode". Other fixes concern documentation or typos in the program messages.
Release Notes: This release brings several fixes that lead dar to display error messages at end of execution under certain environments. If fixes a segmentation fault that could be met while comparing an archive with the filesystem. It also lets dar link with libexecinfo under systems that provide it, and lets dar restore from differential backups directories that have been recorded as unchanged since the archive of reference was done. It updates all provided sample scripts to be compatible with dar's --min-digit new option.
Release Notes: This release fixes an important bug which avoided dar_manager to read databases generated by the previous release. These database can now be read normally with this new version, and there's no need to rebuild them.
Release Notes: This release brings some minor enhancements concerning memory usage and execution speed. It also contains a bugfix for dar_manager.
Release Notes: This release brings minor bugfixes and documentation update.
Release Notes: This release brings some minor bugfixes, documentation updates, and a single new feature for the dar_manager program necessary to keep available a behavior similar to older versions.
