Release Notes: This release adds support to use the splice(2) function where it is available, and will now display IEEE1541 units.
Release Notes: An average rate display option was added to better show progress with bursty traffic. A consistent exit status is set to help script writers. Various minor cleanups and bug fixes were made.
Release Notes: SIGINT, SIGHUP, and SIGTERM are trapped so that IPCs are cleaned up on exit. The program is aborted if a numeric option, such as -L, has a non-numeric value. Compilation fixes were made for Darwin 9 and Mac OS X.
Release Notes: A new option "-B" was added to set the buffer size, and a workaround has been added for problems piping to dd(1).
Release Notes: The terminal locking code was ported to FreeBSD.
Release Notes: Rate and size parameters can now take suffixes such as "k" and "m".
Release Notes: Improvements in the display behaviour when put in the background with "bg" and then brought back into the foreground with "fg" have been made such that the progress meter reappears as expected.
Release Notes: A Polish translation has been added, and there are minor cleanups for building under Solaris.
Release Notes: Translations for French and German have been added.
Release Notes: A Portuguese (Brazilian) translation has been added.
