3Changes between versions 0.4b41 and 0.4b42 (released xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
4=====================================================================
5
61. Fix printout of the 'Connection to' message in dump/restore.
7 Thanks to Dale Wiles <dwiles@users.sourceforge.net> for the
8 bug report and its fix.
b630baf0 9
c43794b1
SP
102. Fix dump -w/-W output for filesystems having the last backup
11 level equal to 0. Thanks to Pascal Bouchareine
12 <kalou@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
13
7f7d329e
SP
143. Enable restore to handle restoring onto a different SELinux
15 policy from the dump. Thanks to Tony Nelson
16 <tony_nelson@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
17 (see http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=189845
18 for details)

db80efa5
SP
204. Fix EA set failures when restoring immutable files. Thanks
21 to Andrew Kroeger for the patch.
22
4a9a33ef
SP
235. Fix "mode file too large" errors when restoring huge backups.
24 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
25 report.
26
d2816d4c
SP
276. Add the ability to link against libtinfo library if present,
28 instead of libtermcap or libncurses libraries. Thanks to
29 Adam Tkac <atkac@redhat.com> for the patch.
30
370f48b6 31Changes between versions 0.4b40 and 0.4b41 (released January 2, 2006)
54ebfc01 32=====================================================================
b630baf0
SP
33
341. Fix restore of dumped Access Control Lists. The previous
35 code for EA works fine, but ACLs needed conversion from the
36 ext2/3 disk format to posix_acl format before restoring.
f30c53e5 37
cb6d3f79
SP
382. Fix some issues with restoration of EA on big endian
39 platforms.
40
26ce8fc8
SP
413. Fix restore when the symtab is over 2GB in size.
42
df3d2ef9
SP
434. Made the directory hash indexing an optional feature,
44 accessible by the '-H' option of restore, and disable it
45 by default.
46
0c78942b
SP
475. Fixed dump to not include extended attributes information
48 in the toc (archive) file which confused restore -t.
49
84182f10
SP
50Changes between versions 0.4b39 and 0.4b40 (released May 2, 2005)
51=================================================================
f30c53e5
SP
52
531. Changed restore to emit warnings (instead of emitting a fatal
54 error) if a file (or a directory) is unavailable for a
55 comparision (if the user doesn't have the necessary permissions
56 to access it for example). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
57 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
35ed8cf8 58
979da669
SP
592. Re-done the 'do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
60 (excluded from dump)' feature. The previous implementation
61 worked well for excluded directories but not for regular files.
62 Thanks to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug
63 report.
64
1ba0c4bb
SP
653. Fixed a bug in dump where the tape size was miscalculated when
66 the user used -d/-s to specify the tape characteristics. Thanks
67 to Philip Goisman <goisman@physics.arizona.edu> for reporting
68 the bug.
69
c21722b0
SP
704. Fixed another bug introduced in restore with the hashtree
71 implementation. This one caused restore to stop saying
72 "removenode: non-empty directory" in some cases.
73
cca7148b
SP
745. Added support for dumping and restoring ext2/3 extended
75 attributes (EA), like the access control lists (ACL) or
76 the security labels used by SELinux.
77
debbffbc
SP
78Changes between versions 0.4b38 and 0.4b39 (released January 21, 2005)
79======================================================================
35ed8cf8
SP
80
811. The newly added dump_on_cd_3 example was buggy, replace it
82 with an updated version from Andrew Basterfield
83 <bob@cemetery.homeunix.org>.
b79d20f1 84
30e8407d
SP
852. Made restore to chdir() back into the initial directory when
86 dumping core while aborting a comparision operation. The
87 previous behaviour was to write the corefile at the root of
88 the directory being compared, which could very well be
89 read only and preventing the corefile generation. Thanks
90 to Kenneth Porter <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for the bug report.
91
b43981b3
SP
923. Silenced the failure to call fgetflags() when comparing an
93 entry which has no ext2 attributes (as in lsattr()).
94
68415469
SP
954. Fix a brown paper bug in restore -C which broke restore and
96 caused modifications on the filesystem being compared
97 (directories containing a file with the same name as the
98 directory get renamed to RSTTMP...). Thanks to Kenneth Porter
99 <shiva@sewingwitch.com> for finding the bug and helping me
100 reproduce it.
101
18dc6e86
SP
1025. Made restore -C force the -N flag (no writing allowed on
103 the disk) in order to prevent more bugs like the above one.
104
cdd136ec
SP
105Changes between versions 0.4b37 and 0.4b38 (released January 7, 2005)
106=====================================================================
b79d20f1
SP
107
1081. Fix a couple of troff syntax bugs in the man pages.
109 Thanks to Eric Raymond <esr@thyrsus.com> for the patch.
d7783603 110
0556ca22
SP
1112. Made restore use either libncurses or libtermcap, depending
112 on which one is available at configure time.
113
7d422735
SP
1143. Fixed restore negative size display bug when comparing a
115 dump containing files over 2GB. Thanks to Steve Bonds
116 <sbonds@users.sourceforge.net> for the bug report.
117
585ca01a
SP
1184. Do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
119 (excluded from dump). This will eliminate the 'missing
120 file' warnings when doing 'restore -C'.
121
241ddca3
SP
1225. Fix dump crash when backuping a huge (2TB) filesystem,
123 due to a bogus calculation on the inode map size.
124 Thanks to Kevin B. Haines <K.B.Haines@rl.ac.uk> for
125 submitting the bug and testing the fix.
126
47acd076
SP
1276. Fix a problem in restore where the final \0 in the symbolic
128 link names could have been lost, generating corrupt filenames.
129 Thanks to Kyle Wilson <kyle.wilson@amd.com> for reporting the
130 bug.
131
741eb204
SP
1327. Implemented a hash list for the directory names in restore.
133 The linear list used before caused problems in interactive
134 restores when dealing with directories having thousands of
135 entries. Thanks to Brian Ristuccia <bristuccia@starentnetworks.com>
136 for reporting the bug.
137
a55ce914
SP
1388. Improved restore -C, this time including the directory
139 attributes into the comparision.
140
1419. Made restore understand tapes containing EA/ACLs (which will
142 be dumped by the next version of dump). In this version
143 extended attributes on the tape are ignored, for full EA/ACL
144 support wait for the next version or try the experimental EA
145 patch.
146
498a402f
SP
147Changes between versions 0.4b36 and 0.4b37 (released July 7, 2004)
148==================================================================
d7783603
SP
149
1501. Added the --enable-staticz configure option which enables
151 dump and restore to be linked with static versions of
152 libz and libbz2 (and dynamic versions of all other libraries).
153 This will make Debian users happy, because libz and libbz2
154 were the only needed libraries living in /usr, all the
155 others live in /lib. In case of system emergency, it is
156 better not to have to rely on an extra filesystem.
157 Thanks to Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com> for the suggestion.
e0267986 158
b3f55532
SP
1592. Fix compilation on (at least the Linux Debian port to) AMD64.
160 (<ext2fs/ext2_types.h> defines some types (__s64 and __u64)
161 that are also defined by <linux/types.h> (<asm/types.h>) and
162 they conflict).
163
1f2c193e
SP
1643. Make dump's reading of the dumpdates file a bit more robust,
165 preventing dump from crashing when the dumpdates file has
166 been modified by hand.
167
e1e4be20
SP
1684. Fixed some offset calculations in dump code which could
169 lead to "bread lseek errors" on large filesystems. Thanks
170 to Bruce Lowekamp <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for
171 reporting this bug and debugging the issue.
172
c9e4e868
SP
1735. Made dump use the blkid library when searching for devices
174 by label or uuid instead of dump's own routines.
175
97be3358
SP
1766. Corrected a bug in dump where a wrong LABEL=... line in
177 /etc/fstab could prevent dump from dumping unrelated
178 filesystems. Thanks to Bruce Lowekamp
179 <lowekamp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
180
ddf54486
SP
181Changes between versions 0.4b35 and 0.4b36 (released April 21, 2004)
182====================================================================
e0267986
SP
183
1841. Fixed dump compilation with old gcc versions. Thanks to
185 Mike Castle <dalgoda@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
8ad151aa 186
75654eee
SP
1872. Fixed some warnings (howmany, roundup, powerof2 redefined)
188 when compiling against a recent glibc version.
189
43e6ea49
SP
1903. Fixed a bug in restore preventing the read of a dump tape
191 written with Solaris 7 ufsdump. Thanks to Patrick Higgins
192 <phiggins@transzap.com> for reporting the bug and providing
193 the test case.
194
d435f57f
SP
1954. Changed dump to enable the creation of volumes of different
196 sizes in a single run (make -B accept a list of values).
197 Patch contributed by Florian Zumbiehl <florz@gmx.de>.
198
e1ba02ef
SP
1995. Use the glibc provided minor() and major() macros instead
200 of our own bitmask implementation. This should be safe for
201 when the major/minor namespace will migrate to 32 bits.
202 Thanks to Zhang Jun <zhangjun@nanjing-fnst.com> for reporting
203 the bug.
204
ae6919a7
SP
2056. Made explicit in the dump man page that dump will not create
206 a remote file, it will only write to an already existing one.
207
4acaf865
SP
2087. Another try at making size estimates better again.
209
956756f2
SP
2108. Put back the inconditional running of the end-of-tape
211 script which was changed in 0.434 to be run only when -M
212 or multiple -f were NOT specified. Some users rely on this
213 feature even when it is combined with -M/-f.
214
e4e31ce9
SP
2159. Fixed restore when restoring huge backups (where rstdir...
216 temporary files are over 2GB). Thanks to
217 Raphael Jaffey <rjaffey@artic.edu> for reporting this,
218 debugging the issue and making the patch.
219
cc7747eb
SP
22010. Made restore understand FreeBSD UFS2 tapes. Thanks to
221 David <vrtin@users.sourceforge.net> for submitting the bug
222 and providing a test case.
223
28ba5cae
SP
22411. Made dump work with an arbitrary integer level (no more 10
225 levels only limitation). Thanks to Matthew
226 <msvincen@midway.uchicago.edu> for the patch.
227
dcac75e9
SP
228Changes between versions 0.4b34 and 0.4b35 (released December 21, 2003)
229=======================================================================
8ad151aa
SP
230
2311. Added a note in the dump man page saying that the default
232 blocksize can be 32 if -d is used with a high density argument.
233 Thanks to Antonios Christofides <A.Christofides@itia.ntua.gr>
234 for the patch.
ed194aec 235
008af419
SP
2362. Fixed configure to correctly understand CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS,
237 LDFLAGS environment variables. Thanks to Arcady Genkin
238 <antipode@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.
239
0d4dfd07 2403. Made -e/-E options of dump accept an unlimited number of inodes
67793be0
SP
241 to be excluded, rather than a hardcoded maximum. Thanks to
242 Dietrich Rothe <d-rothe@users.sourceforge.net> for the patch.
243
0d4dfd07
SP
2444. Updated the autoconf system to 2.50. Forced the -D_BSD_SOURCE
245 and -D_USE_BSD_SIGNAL defines in configure in order to solve
246 64bit build problems because quad_t is redifined with a
247 different signature. Thanks to Mike Harris <mharris@redhat.com>
248 for reporting this bug.
249
5d8d264f 2505. Made restore build on Solaris, making possible to
d1925e0c
SP
251 restore Linux's "enhanced" tapes. Thanks to Uwe Gohlke
252 <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.
253
2546. Made an extension in the dump tape format capable of saving
255 MacOSX specific inode extensions. Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de>
256 wrote the extension and contributed the restore code back
257 into this codebase. The same extension mechanism will be
258 used in the future to save ACLs...
259
2607. Made rmt work correctly with regard to QFA and local/remote
261 files and tapes. The remote access will however work only
262 when the dump provided rmt version is used. If you want to
263 use another rmt server, please do not use the QFA feature.
5d8d264f 264 Thanks to Uwe Gohlke <uwe@ugsoft.de> for the patch.

266Changes between versions 0.4b33 and 0.4b34 (released April 18, 2003)
267====================================================================
ed194aec
SP
268
2691. Fixed the INSTALL file to reflect the actual install paths.
270 Thanks to David Ronis <ronis@ronispc.chem.mcgill.ca> for
271 reporting the bug.
4bb009da 272
d3e542e7
SP
2732. Fixed the configure script to only check for headers presence
274 instead of trying to compile them. This should fix issues
275 with old build environments. Thanks to Kari Lempiainen
276 <kari@funky.pp.fi> for reporting the bug.
277
1176b3c1
SP
2783. Fixed restore to correctly ignore sockets when comparing
279 a dump (as socket cannot be properly restored anyway). Thanks
2d32c89c
SP
280 to Gunther Reiszig <gunther@mit.edu> for reporting the bug.
281
2824. Fixed restore to correctly access the archive file (-A argument)
283 even when using a remote tape. Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
284 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
1176b3c1 285
900bffdb
SP
2865. Fixed (again) handling of long (largefile) seeks in rmt.
287 Thanks to Fabrice Bellet <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting
288 the bug.
289
6d834d25
SP
2906. Fixed restore corner case when dealing with large block sizes
291 dump is able to write now (-b 1024). Thanks to Fabrice Bellet
292 <fabrice@bellet.info> for reporting the bug.
293
cdef84ca
SP
2947. Fixed a bug preventing dump to access a filesystem having
295 a label exactly 16 bytes in length. Thanks to <minduni@ti-edu.ch>
296 for reporting the bug.
297
3458b64d
SP
2988. Made dump store dump dates using explicit timezones, fixing a
299 problem with incremental dumps if the timezone is modified
300 between the dumps. Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for
301 the bug report and the patch.
302
2be77799
SP
3039. Fixed a bug encountered when dumping individual files (not full
304 filesystems or directories) and dangling symbolic links happen
305 to be in the list of files. For as far as dump is concerned,
306 dangling symbolic links are allowed, and are dumped as is.
307 Thanks to Jin-su Ahn <jsahn@ee.snu.ac.kr> for reporting the
308 bug and providing the fix.
309
c3f69f06
SP
31010. Fixed open and creation modes and permissions for QFA and
311 table-of-contents files in dump and restore. Thanks to
312 Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
313
31411. Fixed the archive file descriptor handling enabling it to be 0.
315 This can happen in some cases when shell redirections are used.
316 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
317
31812. Delayed the opening of archive file until after suid had been
319 dropped (fixing a possible security issue if dump is suid).
320 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
321
32213. Fixed the 'S' command handling in the rmt client part.
323 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
324
32514. Modified the end-of-tape script handling to print out statistics
326 (and stop the timer) before launching the eot script. Also, the eot
327 script does not get run anymore when using -M (which makes sense) or
328 when multiple tapes are listed on the command line
329 (-f tape0,tape1,tapen) (which also makes sense).
330 Thanks to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for the patch.
331
e1abc9ce
SP
33215. Relicensed dump/restore under the 'revised' BSD license, as per
333 ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/ucb/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change.
334
206f768c
SP
33516. Added LZO compression to dump. This new compression method has
336 the advantage of being super fast, thus not killing tape streaming
337 on slow machines. Thanks to Helmut Jarausch
338 <jarausch@igpm.rwth-aachen.de> for the patch and to
339 Markus Oberhumer <markus@oberhumer.com> for giving special permission
340 to include his miniLZO project (GPL licensed) in dump/restore.
341
e2392789
SP
34217. Some small buffer overruns fixes in rmt. Thanks to Antonomasia
343 <ant@notatla.demon.co.uk> for reporting the bugs.
344
cdfe1392
SP
34518. Added a special rmt version which can do encryption when writing
346 to tape. Read examples/encrypted_rmt/README for details on
347 how to enable and configure it. Thanks to Ken Lalonde
348 <ken@globalremit.com> for the patch.
349
61e9d4ff
SP
35019. Made dump work with 2.5 kernel end of tape early warning semantics.
351 Thanks to Kai Makisara <Kai.Makisara@kolumbus.fi> for the patch.
352
8c95cc30
SP
35320. Fixed a bug which caused dump -w|-W not to work anymore, because
354 the fs_freq and fs_passno fields in /etc/mtab are always set
355 to 0 0. Thanks to Trent Piepho <xyzzy@speakeasy.org> for
356 reporting the bug.
357
cbdba727 358Changes between versions 0.4b32 and 0.4b33 (released February 10, 2003)
4bb009da
SP
359=======================================================================
360
3611. Added a note in the restore man page clarifying the question
362 'set the permissions on the current directory ?' asked by
363 restore at the end of treatment in -i and -x modes.
d86089d1 364
c898ca7a
SP
3652. Fixed the endianess issues when reading compressed tapes.
366 Thanks to Dark Force <daq4th@users.sourceforge.net> for
367 reporting this bug and providing test cases.
368
a028bdc8
SP
3693. Fixed the "ACL won't be dumped" warning message (which showed
370 an extra, unrelated error message). Thanks to Dragan Krnic
371 <dkrnic@lycos.com> for reporting this bug.
372
a8a6a503 3734. Made dump look first into /etc/mtab, then into /etc/fstab
1a886de8
SP
374 when searching for filesystem paths. Also fixed some problems
375 caused by binding mounts or multiple block device mounts.
376 Thanks to Matus Uhlar <uhlar@fantomas.sk>, Elliott Mitchell
a8a6a503
SP
377 <ehem@m5p.com>, Greg Edwards <gedwards@users.sourceforge.net>,
378 Brian Hoy <brian.hoy@opus.co.nz>. (fixes Debian bugs #147086
379 and #160305, Sourceforge bugs #618699 and #679832).
1a886de8 380
3211c85b
SP
3815. Made dump's -I option accept the value '0' meaning all the
382 read errors will be ignored. This can be useful when running
383 dump from unattended sessions (like cron jobs). Thanks to
384 John I Wang <jiwang@users.sourceforge.net> for the suggestion.
385
7fcd6df5
SP
3866. Fixed the output of dump to indicate 'blocks' instead of
387 'tape blocks' in the various messages (blocks are always
388 1 Kilobyte, tape blocks are 1 BK * '-b' argument), and
389 made it clearly print the current blocksize at the start of
390 a dump. Thanks to Michal Szymanski <msz@astrouw.edu.pl> for
391 the suggestions.
392
5bf65105
SP
3937. Made rmt understand long (largefiles) seeks.
394
dbb649e8
SP
3958. Fixed build with very old versions of libext2fs, where
396 EXT2_FT_* constants were undefined.
397
c92d83ae
SP
3989. Made dump accept the dumpdates path on the command line
399 (-D file option) instead of using only the hardcoded one.
400 Thanks to Piete Brooks <pb22@users.sourceforge.net> for the
401 suggestion.
402
1daf06b9
SP
40310. Enabled rmt, LFS, readline, QFA options by default in
404 ./configure. Updated the configure process (new versions
405 of config.guess, config.sub etc).
406
51c11d00
SP
407Changes between versions 0.4b31 and 0.4b32 (released November 15, 2002)
408=======================================================================
d86089d1
SP
409
4101. Changed dump to use fcntl(F_SETLK) style locking instead
411 of flock() when locking the dumpdates file. With the old
412 locking scheme, a local user having read rights on the
413 dumpdates file could be able to do a Denial of Service attack
414 on dump. In order to lock the dumpdates file with the new
415 scheme, the user would need to have write access on the file.
416 Thanks to Richard Johnson <Richard.Johnson3@ey.com> for
417 reporting the bug (originally a bugtraq post).
ba3af39e 418
2f562f4e
SP
4192. Fixed interactive 'ls' which caused spurious errors warnings
420 about 'undefined filetypes' detected. Thanks to Jorgen Ostling
421 <jorgen_ostling@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this
422 bug.

4264. Modified dump to allow setting a blocksize bigger than 32kB
427 (raised the limit to 1024kB), because newer hardware needs
428 this for proper operation. Thanks to Dirk Traenapp
429 <dtraenapp@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this.

4315. Fixed a bug causing Dump to stop and report an error if an
432 inode number in the exclude file was followed by some amount
433 of whitespace. Thanks to Jeffrey Sofferin
434 <sofferin@users.sourceforge.net> for reporting this bug.

4366. Fixed a bug which caused restore, in some particular cases,
437 to ask some 'scary' questions and leave a bunch of RSTTMP
438 directories behind when restoring incremental tapes. Thanks
439 to Philippe Troin <phil@fifi.org> for reporting this bug and
440 providing the test cases.

4427. Changed the wording when inodes are excluded from dump:
443 replaced 'Added inode 7 to exclude list' with
444 'Excluding inode 7 (resize inode) from dump', as suggested
445 by Elliott Mitchell <ehem@m5p.com> in a Debian bug report.

4501. Fixed rmt open flags transmission (GNU's symbolic syntax over
451 rmt) which I broke in 0.4b29. Thanks to Eros Albertazzi

4571. Made dump print out the ext2 logical block number in case of a read
458 error, which can be given as an argument to debugfs' ncheck command,
459 in order to find out the affected inode. Added note about this
460 usage in dump's man page.

4622. Fixed a problem in restore when reading tapes written on big
463 endian machines with very old versions of dump. The patch was
464 contributed by George Helffrich <george@geology.bristol.ac.uk>.

4663. Fixed the tape length calculation when using large tapes
467 and compression. Thanks to Georg Lippold
468 <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for reporting the bug.

4704. Added a new set of examples in dump_on_cd_2 directory, based
471 on dump_on_cd examples but somewhat enhanced, supporting DVD
472 media, and localized in english and german. Thanks to
473 Georg Lippold <g_lippold@sourceforge.net> for the new scripts.

4755. Made dump save 32 bit UID/GID. Internally, this was achieved
476 by switching from the old BSD inode format to the new BSD
477 inode format, which means that the tape format was changed.
478 However, since all restore versions out there should
479 transparently support both inode formats, the change should
480 have no side effects. Thanks to John Yu <jky@cs.bu.edu> for
481 reporting the bug.

4836. Fixed a lot of warnings in the code shown when compiling
484 with 'gcc -W'. Thanks to Matthias Andree

4918. Rewrote entirely the man pages using the tmac.an macro
492 package (Linux man page format) instead of the original BSD
493 format. They should be now cleaner and easier to modify.

4981. Fixed a problem in the rmt ioctl command, where ioctl's issued from
499 non Linux clients were misinterpreted. The description of the problem
500 (incompatible numbering in Linux mtio opcodes) is documented at
501 ftp://ftp.fokus.gmd.de/pub/unix/star/README.mtio . Thanks to
