    Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in the cache layer, used to reduce context switches when using Dar over SSH. This cache layer could grow continuously, leading dar/libdar using up half of the RAM depending on the operating system. Some minor typos and display bugs have also been fixed, and the configure script was adapted to better integrate with FreeBSD systems.

      Release Notes: This release fixes compilation issues under Mac OS X and other FreeBSD systems using clang as a C++ compiler, brings some new libdar API calls, adds support for backslashes in DCF files, and fixes several minor bugs in the code and documentation.

        Release Notes: This release adds several minor bugfixes, including one for a bug met under a very rare condition leading dar to wrongly report a file as corrupted at reading time, another for a bug in the sparse file detection mechanism which could lead dar to miss detecting small holes in files, several code updates to support compilation in g++11 mode, and other fixes relative to dar compilation within a BSD system like Mac OS X.

          Release Notes: dar now takes care of umask when creating a slice when dar is used with the --hash option. This release also improves performance when used over ssh using dar_slave and provides fixes for several minor bugs and corrects spelling in documentation.

            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.
