Release Notes: A bug has been fixed that was triggered when backing up hard linked files that had not read permission to be saved. The code syntax has been fixed to compile with gcc-3.4.x.
Release Notes: Since version 2.1.0, dar did not restore system Extended Attributes. This has been fixed. There is a minor bugfix concerning the -H option, and a small improvement in "limitint" overflow detection.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in the parsing engine for configuration files and another concerning archives larger than 1E16 Terabytes. The dar_cp command is now faster and more verbose.
Release Notes: There is a bugfix for Windows users (upgrading is recommended for Windows). There is better support for systems like FreeBSD that do not have GNU getopt.
Release Notes: This version no longer generates a parse error when an empty file is given as an argument to -B option.
Release Notes: Among a few new features like "dry-run" execution, the new API to libdar lets KDAR, a KDE front-end to DAR, enter its first official release.
Release Notes: This release fixes a detection problem with large file support with some compilers (like gcc-3).
Release Notes: dar_manager did not completely remove the archive from databases, leaving garbage that was not used but overwritten by the next added archive. This just made the database a bit bigger, but had no impact on dar_manager's behavior. No binary packages are proposed for this very minor release.
Release Notes: The warning that the archive is about to save itself was displayed in some incorrect cases. An error in the parsing of comments inside configuration files led to strange behavior. The program hung when using the --nodump option on a named pipe. Detailed documentation has been added about the file filtering mechanism.
Release Notes: A warning to the user is issued when the backup contains the archive itself.
