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.
Release Notes: This version features ports to FreeBSD, NetBSD, and SunOS, API and libdar creation for external software, speed and memory optimizations, and a few bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release has bzip2 compression, nodump ext2/3 flag consideration, flat restoration (ignoring directories), not compressing files under a given size, reading configuration files (/etc/darrc or ~/.darrc) if present, and several bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds several patches (for RPMS, compression level, EA_SUPPORT, and stdint.h), and -I and -X options while listing archive contents (-l). Both statically and dynamically linked versions are now available.
Release Notes: Support for 64-bit Linux and Cygwin, a scrambling feature, selective compression based on filenames, a configuration file, the ability to run a user-specified command line between slices, and a new command for extracting a set of files from any number of differential and full backups. There were also some other minor features added and few bugfixes.
Release Notes: DAR can now save or restore hard links and Extended Attributes. Many new features have been added, including integrity testing, comparison with a filesystem, extraction of the "catalogue" to a small file, archiving to or extracting from a remote host using pipes, slice re-shaping of an existing archive, and a non-interactive mode.
Release Notes: A fix for stopping when calling zlib in some very rare cases due to an unexpected return code from inflate() and deflate() zlib calls.
Release Notes: This release has a portability fix that allows it to run on 64-bit Linux. It made full backups instead of differential backups on some files, in some cases, when excluding some directories (-P option) from the backup; this has been fixed.
Release Notes: Fixed some syntactic incoherences to allow compilation with more C++ compilers, and fixed a bug that lead files pointed to by symbolic links to get the wrong date at restoration time in some cases.
