    Release Notes: Improvements were made to macro handling, including support for environment variable replacement in configuration files and rule attributes where such changes were previously not allowed. Implicit directory creation for archive mode is now supported, allowing easier management of larger directory structures. A "prune" option is now supported to avoid snapshot or other virtual directories on storage arrays.

      Release Notes: Minor fixes to the implementation of the "impacted users" email messages are included. Changes and stability improvements for handling complex pattern matching are also present.

        Release Notes: This release adds minor revisions to improve email impacted support, performance of ignore files, and handling of multi-line pattern matching.

          Release Notes: This release adds the ability for key rules to specify a new argument: "email_impacted". This then delivers targeted emails to users whose files are impacted by the rule in question. This one extra facility allows Skulker to move from standard log file management to a more generic user-file facility, especially when "reportonly" rule types provide users with advance notice of files being reduced, removed, compressed, rotated, or organized in other ways.

            Release Notes: This release adds support for the "group_by_directory" directive to alter the handling for recursive directory matching to limit lists of files to process on a per-directory basis, rather than the default of the complete matched list.

              Release Notes: This release implements many enhancements on the outstanding list found on the Google Code page, including support for LINES and BLOCKS attributes for better attribute handling for files, implementation of "reportonly" functionality for the "rotate" and "organize" file management functions, capture of filesystem scanning information and display of per-rule information (files/directories scanned for a rule and the time taken to scan), and implementation of new functions to capture and check matching file checksums (this allows use of the Skulker pattern matching functionality to perform file integrity checking).

                Release Notes: This release adds more functionality to allow skulker to perform some security functionality too. This includes is_true_world_readable and is_true_world_writeable functions to match files, a "list" function just to list matches (rather than manipulate them), and improved "setperms" function to change any matched files. It also adds has_no_owner and has_no_group functions, implements functionality to record the filesystem scanning time for each rule.

                  Release Notes: This release adds --start and --end to allow the totals summary output to cover the period in question rather than all known runs (which is still the default). Variables can be upper or mixed case rather than just lower case. A new built in variable CMPEXT provides a pattern match to match files that have a known compression type. The manual page has been updated.

                    Release Notes: Improvements to the "setperms" function (used to set permissions on files rather than save disk space). Improvements to the "htmlreport" functionality to optionally include a summary table of rule statistics for the period covered. Documentation has been reviewed and updated. A "match_filter_limit" option for rules has been added.

                      Release Notes: This release adds support for the "setperms" function to allow rules for setting and changing permissions, adds a "match" function to the match_by clause functionality to allow more flexible filtering, fixes the handling of rule history statistics, improves handling of the "older than boot" generators, adds further self-tests, and improves the "date from file" functionality.
