Release Notes: The groups 'all' and 'none' are now built-in groups. Compound groups are new and may now be defined in the config file. The command-line parser now checks for excessive arguments. This catches mistakes that could previously lead to undesired results. A (harmless but annoying) bug in filtering ignored nodes in synctool-config was fixed. The upload feature was improved; it now works a lot better when the target is in a subdirectory that has been given a group extension.
Release Notes: The ability to check for newer versions and download the .tar.gz dist file has been added. An option has been added to check what file from the repository will be used when a file is about to be updated. Live files from a node into the repository from the directory. A bug in which an update for a single directory would not work has been fixed. A bug dealing with buffered output in setups where the master node is also under control of synctool has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release contains a bugfix for setups where the master node is being managed by synctool as well.
Release Notes: Versions prior to this release would not run update scripts when a directory was changed. This problem has been resolved. The dsh command has gained the -a option, which helps in formatting the output in a more readable way. Central logging of changes applied by synctool to a logfile on the master node is now easily configured in the configuration file.
Release Notes: A new command has been added: synctool-scp, or just "dcp". With this command you can copy files to all nodes in the cluster. This is a nice complement to the existing synctool-ssh / dsh command.
Release Notes: Two minor problems have been fixed. One has to do with having to do two update runs when a file changes both ownership and mode. The other one has to do with the order of the output when an external command is being run.
Release Notes: The internals have been greatly rewritten. There are also many new features. It can be run on a subset of nodes or even an individual node. ".post" scripts can contain actions to be performed after a file update. ".post" scripts can have group-specific extensions making it possible to perform group-specific actions. There is a separate synctool-ssh or dsh command provided to run commands on all nodes that are managed by synctool. A synctool-config command conveniently extracts any information from the config file to ease scripting around synctool.
Release Notes: Due to a bug, backup files were not created. This problem has been fixed.
