Release Notes: Since version 3.3.8, Autoconf was modified to detect libacl and libattr more reliably. Autoconf was also modified to be able to build even in quite strange environments by overriding system specifics.
Release Notes: This release contains bugfixes and major improvements.
Release Notes: This release includes OpenBSD support, a tape locations database, media changer support, new cart_ctl command, support for saving the mtime for restoring of last time attribute, a fix so contents of the progress text window in xrestore are always visible. The server can now send mail to current users (%U) on the clientside (%H), includes a write messages to syslog function, includes path replacements (%L, %B, %V), and exhibits less strange behaviour if no logging path is provided. Various fixes are also included regarding toplevel directories with a name consisting of only one character, a segfault whilst restoring a filesystem entry with ACLs and several hardlinks, a buggy function in libdes is now avoided when not explicitly called, and a better algorithm to select the tape files for emergency restore.
Release Notes: Bugfixes.
Release Notes: The following bugs were fixed: Files with special characters in their names were sometimes not found during restore with given filenames. __descrpt had a problem when reading a pipe. When restoring relative to a directory, symlinks pointing to absolute pathnames were not created correctly. The device access timeouts did not behave as documented. Files were sometimes truncated during restore. New features include fewer problems on SystemV-like OSes, a tape usage counter, a new serverside callback command called "Tape-Full-Command", and much more.
Release Notes: A full backup split into pieces does no longer modify the timestamp, builtin compression, faster (backward compatible) packing format, bug fixed requiring unnecessary workaround for afrestore -[eEf] on new installation, restore -[eEf] now works together with -[RC], option -G for (full|incr)_backup and afclient to request a new or reused cartridge, completely any-shit-in-filenames-safe, e.g. newlines or non-printable characters are allowed in filenames now, cartridge sets may consist of arbitrary cartridges, enhanced database saving capability through command output saving/command input restoring feature, client configuration file must be owned by root now (security fix).
Release Notes: Compilation was broken with glibc, FreeBSD, and maybe others operating systems. A bug where differential backups did not work correctly when configuring several backup parts has been fixed as well.
Release Notes: Multi stream server, continually updated server status, improved directory descent, safer tape error handling, -v option for verify, restore and copy_tape, faster verify, Filelist recovery also restores uid fields.
Release Notes: ACLs supported on Solaris2 and HPUX-10, filesizes > 2GB supported on Solaris >= 2.6, multi stream server, status file on server side, descending into directories is now done like find -depth, hopefully even safer tape error handling, service names allowed wherever port numbers were to be given, -v option for verify, restore and copy_tape, tapes can be set read-only, tapes are no longer overwritten, server keeps track, which tapes are needed for all the clients, admin must explicitely permit overwrite of needed tapes, verify is much faster now, and more.
Release Notes: Bug fixed: During save timestamps of filesystem entries were changed, that symlinks pointed to
