    Release Notes: The management of filesystem features for ext2/ext3/ext4 has been rewritten so that it works in all cases (such as with old e2fsprogs versions or when doing a filesystem conversion). Also, compilation errors were fixed on rhel-5.x and fedora-11-alpha. Filesystem detection was improved.

      Release Notes: This version is able to archive and extract NTFS filesystems. It can be used to flexibly clone NTFS partitions. This means you can restore the backup of an NTFS filesystem to a partition which is smaller than the original or somewhere else on the disk. It has been tested on the XP version of Windows only. This requires the advanced release of ntfs-3g (systemrescuecd-1.1.5-beta15 is a live CD that comes with fsarchiver-0.4.1 and all its requirements). This version also adds a command that shows all the filesystems of the computer: "fsarchiver probe simple".

        Release Notes: More flexibility was introduced in the compression levels to allow more choices: there are now 9 compression levels. Support was added for encryption using openssl and blowfish to encrypt the archive with a password. The way an archive is read when we don't want to restore all of its file systems was optimized. The help screen now shows which optional features have been enabled at compilation time. Other internal changes were made, which are not visible to users.

          Release Notes: A buffer overflow that caused a crash was fixed. A problem that truncated the external commands executed was fixed. Checks were added for header files in ./configure to make sure the program won't fail to compile when xattr.h is not installed. A workaround was added for a bug in tune2fs on ext4, which is used by fsarchiver. Support was added for lzo compression (a very fast algorithm).

            Release Notes: Major bugs were fixed, such as deadlocks in the queue and corruption of a checksum during savefs, which makes the restoration of the archive impossible. Management of the error and normal messages was improved. Support was added for the btrfs filesystem attributes, since its format should not change in the future.

              Release Notes: This new version supports multiple filesystems per archive. The syntax of "restfs" has been changed to allow extracting archives with several filesystems. It also adds a new command "archinfo" to display information about an existing image. The threads management has been optimized. It's now possible to compress using lzma, as well as gzip and bzip2.

                Release Notes: This release adds the ability to restore archives with corrupt headers as well as corrupt data blocks, ports the sources to autoconf and automake, and adds internal changes invisible to users.

                    Release Notes: Support for multi-threading compression (option -j on the command line) and the ability to restore a corrupt archive.

                      Release Notes: This release fixes two bugs: it was not possible to restore an ext{2,3.4} partition if it was mounted read/write during the savefs, and opening an archive may fail in restfs for no reason.
