Release Notes: This release fixed a bug where all modified synchronized files were destroyed if the history directory was not writable.

  •  02 Feb 2006 13:45

Release Notes: This release fixes the case where the user modifies a file mode while NNFS is running and NNFS is configured in order that a file mode change does not imply file synchronization.

  •  31 Oct 2005 13:33

Release Notes: A new option in this release allows it to update the content of directories not writable by the owner. To do so, it temporarily changes the directory mode to make it writable; as this is dangerous, the option is not set by default. It is now possible to save the configuration if NNFS is compiled with GTK 2.6.

Release Notes: Some badly reported error messages have been fixed. There are fewer compilation warnings. The regression tests now pass on fast computers. The documentation warns the user about the 2Gb medium size limit. The default configuration file removes unnecessary files on the medium.

Release Notes: This release uses GTK 2 in place of GTK 1. The GUI displays files information in a sortable table. There is a new synchronization option for not copying files where only the mode has changed.

Do not compile NNFS version older than 2.1.1
In version older than 2.1.1 the "make clean" in directory "tst" will destroy your system if it is executed by "root".

If you have already compiled NNFS, you can safely use it, but remove immediatly the faulty sources.
