Fedora Update Notification
2009-12-29 18:33:23

Name        : fsarchiver
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.6.3
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://www.fsarchiver.org
Summary     : Safe and flexible file-system backup/deployment tool
Description :
FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a
file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored
on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a
different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the
file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is
checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive
is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

Update Information:

New upstream version:        * Don't fail when e2fsck returns 1 in extfs_mkfs()
since it means the filesystem has been fixed      * Extended options (stride and
stripe_width), max_mount_count, check_interval are now preserved for ext{2,3,4}
* Display the percentage of the operation which has been completed when verbose
>= 1 (sort of progress bar)      * Display information about physical disks as
well as partitions in "fsarchiver probe <mode>"      * Fixed bug with archive
splitting: the split size was sometimes incorrect due to an integer overflow
* Added option "--exclude/-e <pattern>" to exclude files/dirs. It works for both
archiving and extracting.      * Added support for long options (--option) using
getopt_long      * Removed the dependency on "which" to find the path to a
program      * Accept all libgcrypt versions >= 1.2.4 at runtime in
gcry_check_version      * Using functions from libuuid instead of duplicating
code in uuid.[ch]
