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.
Release Notes: This release closes a development cycle of 5 years, with almost 6 months of intensive testing. There more than 50 new features and improvements, including the sequential reading mode that makes dar suitable for tapes, new ciphers, and compression algorithms, generation of an MD5/SHA-1 hashing file for each archive slice, sparse file handling, the ability to launch a user-defined command before and after saving some particular files or directories (to be able to back up a live database properly, for example) and many other features.
Release Notes: This is a maintenance release that fixes a few bugs. The code removing slices of an old archive was fixed. The libdar was improved to be more robust when reading a very corrupted archive, which would otherwise lead dar in an endless loop. Several occurrences of double memory release were fixed.
Release Notes: This release brings a few bugfixes (mainly a bug in displaying dates that lead dar to crash while listing an archive's contents) and some minor enhancements.
Release Notes: This release adds a quiet mode, several updates for optional scripts, and the ability to properly detect the future format of DAR files.
Release Notes: Fixes include corrupted archive generation in some rare and random cases when using Blowfish strong encryption (this type of corruption can be detected by testing your archive with dar). There is no security issue here. Some minor speed optimizations are also included.
Release Notes: This release brings 3 minor bugfixes (2 for dar_manager and 1 for dar) and few documentation corrections (fixes for spelling errors, and more detailed information about some points that were reported as not clear). The source code has also received some very minor modifications to cleanly compile with gcc 4.3.
Release Notes: This release brings five minor bugfixes concerning regex in masks, a Makefile fix, a dar_manager error report, archive finalization when the operation has been interrupted by the user, and an execvp problem when dar_manager calls dar.
Release Notes: This release brings a fix in the native language support, brings several speed optimizations, and provides backward access to the old blowfish encryption implementation weakened by frequent IV collision. The new blowfish implementation is kept unchanged.
Release Notes: This release fixes a weakness in the Blowfish implementation within dar that led to frequent IV collisions. This release also brings some enhancements of a few minor points.
