Rsync 3.0.0pre7 released for OS/2 & eComStation

January 01, 2008 by Paul Smedley

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Paul Smedley

Hi All,

I've added an OS/2 build of rsync v3.0.0pre7 to my site at
http://os2ports.smedley.info

The most important new feature is that Unix xattr (aka OS/2 Extended Attributes) support has been included.

I've based this on the xattr implementation that is being used in Samba for OS/2. This support should be considered experimental purely due to lack of testing in rsync (the code is pretty well tested in Samba/2)

The preserve existing extended attributes when rsyncing from a remote server, use the --xattr switch on the client.

Enjoy!

Paul.

Subject: [rsync-announce] Rsync 3.0.0pre7 released
Date: Sun, 16 Dec 2007 16:17:15 -0800
From: rsync-announceDESPAM@DESPAMlists.samba.org

I've just released rsync 3.0.0pre7, the latest pre-release version of the upcoming 3.0.0 release.

This release contains fixed exclude checks for a "use chroot = no" daemon that has excludes listed in the config file. This is a partial fix for the 2nd advisory that was released recently. See the rsync security web page for the updated details and a patch for 2.6.9:

http://rsync.samba.org/security.html

Thanks for all the testing! We're making good progress to get this released in the weeks ahead. Please send email to the rsync mailing list with your questions, comments, bug reports, etc.

You can download the source tar file and its signature from here:

http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/rsync-3.0.0pre7.tar.gz
http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/rsync-3.0.0pre7.tar.gz.asc

The patches directory was released in a separate tar file for this release. I'm still considering if this is the best choice or not, so feel free to comment:

http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/rsync-patches-3.0.0pre7.tar.gz
http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/rsync-patches-3.0.0pre7.tar.gz.asc

The following changes were made since pre6 was released:

- The aforementioned daemon-exclude fixes.

- The release script now gets the timestamps on the generated autoconf files right so that make doesn't try to rebuild them.

- Fixed a bug in the --progress output where the to-check count would sometimes go negative.

- Fixed a glitch in an internal directory counter on the sending side that could cause rsync to crash.

- Avoid an assert problem if --hard-links was used in list-only mode.

- Check alternate-basis-dir options (--*-dest) and warn about problems.

- Fixed a potential (but unlikely) memory leak in make_file().

- Silenced some compiler warnings.
