Release Notes: The key themes of this release are documentation and accessibility. A more comprehensive release includes a working example of a personal cloud storage installation (section 14 of the manual). Also included are a detailed listing of rsync switches used for 'heavy lifting' and general improvements to links. Core documentation has been added, including a White Paper and other elements updated. The spec file is further refined for use in Fedora, or for your own packaging requirements. Special developer tools provide e.g. Perl to extract, list all subroutine names and line number, print line num ranges, etc.

Release Notes: The main focus of this release is the documented appliance design of a pre-configured 3 node DIASER image pack, now available for download. The pack has been created to assist rapid cross-platform testing and evaluation, significantly lowering entry barriers. Code re-factoring evaluation using force field analysis was completed, and a discussion was written and resulting tasks noted. Further improvements to the spec file were made in accordance with Fedora package maintainer guidelines. CREDITS has been updated and recently completed business targets noted.

Release Notes: An important TLA (AGM) description has been updated throughout the documentation for a more granular meaning, based on changes in IETF-ID LTASP.

Release Notes: The manual and other documentation, including images and diagrams, have been updated. The retrieve function now reads zero or more hyphens when used in a volume naming policy.

Release Notes: This release features updated documentation including a man page, manual, and quick-start guide. SELinux warnings have been removed after further installation and operation tests. sudo --lock option functionality has now been implemented. Template files for a Web GUI tool, which will be released separately, have been added to SVN.

Release Notes: New features include the ability to stop, pause, and resume operations, and a log parser to condense-display a selectable amount of logs from each node. Statistics reporting was improved for disk usage, average diff size, archive storage, and list of volumes archived. An extra storage structure was added to the time-extend operation. Bandwidth calcs can retrieve and build a utility for assisting storage calculations. A Makefile, RPM spec, and Debian packaging structure were added, allowing you to produce an rpm, deb, or dist-tarball. Significant documentation updates were done, including a man page and flash configure demo. More bugs have been resolved regarding time-zone compensation and other minor issues.

Release Notes: The primary focus for this release is the implementation of an operational UTC time zone compensation mechanism. This allows the user to specify in which time zone each node resides, and therefore data transfer between the nodes will be synchronized across different international time zones. Daylight saving adjustments are automatic. The documentation has been updated. A bugfix that corrects node C collection phase has been applied.
