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: 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 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: An important bug has been fixed that affected the saving of hard linked files when the backup was performed over several filesystems at the same time and when file filtering excluded some hard linked files. Unix users of any previous release of dar should review the detailed bug description (SourceForge #1667400) and either use this version to diff their old backups with the current filesystem or perform new full backups of their systems. Other less important fixes have also been made.
Release Notes: This minor release includes several bugfixes and some documentation updates. It tightens the directory permissions used during restoration.
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: 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.
