Release Notes: This release fixes a number of bugs present in the previous release. The comma-separated list of nodes and groups on the command line was not being parsed correctly in certain cases. Whenever output was being printed to stderr, the node name would not be printed in front of the message. An alternative way of uniquely identifying a node within the cluster was added. dsh-ping now also supports fping and Solaris ping.
Release Notes: The synctool software itself is now being kept up to date automatically on client nodes. This makes upgrading synctool a breeze. Making some typos on the command line, like with "-diff" and using multiple slashes in filenames, could lead to undesired effects. This is no longer a problem in the new version. synctool no longer prints a Python stack trace when hitting Ctrl-C. The backwards compatibility with older versions of Python has been improved. Two very useful contributions have been added to the package: a .bash_completion file and a graphical synctool-diff tool.
Release Notes: In certain conditions, a .post script for a directory would not be executed. This bug has been fixed. The "--single" option now accepts trailing slashes to its argument for specifying directories. Control files for making Debian packages have been contributed and are now included in the tardist.
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: 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.
