FEDORA-2017-ccf0f61508 created by mooninite 4 years ago for Fedora 26

5.2.3 (2016-12-30)

  • xz:

    - Always close a file before trying to delete it to avoid
      problems on some operating system and file system combinations.
    - Fixed copying of file timestamps on Windows.
    - Added experimental (disabled by default) sandbox support using
      Capsicum (FreeBSD >= 10). See --enable-sandbox in INSTALL.
  • C99/C11 conformance fixes to liblzma. The issues affected at least some builds using link-time optimizations.

  • Fixed bugs in the rarely-used function lzma_index_dup().

  • Use of external SHA-256 code is now disabled by default. It can still be enabled by passing --enable-external-sha256 to configure. The reasons to disable it by default (see INSTALL for more details):

    - Some OS-specific SHA-256 implementations conflict with
      OpenSSL and cause problems in programs that link against both
      liblzma and libcrypto. At least FreeBSD 10 and MINIX 3.3.0
      are affected.
    - The internal SHA-256 is faster than the SHA-256 code in
      some operating systems.
  • Changed CPU core count detection to use sched_getaffinity() on GNU/Linux and GNU/kFreeBSD.

  • Fixes to the build-system and xz to make xz buildable even when encoders, decoders, or threading have been disabled from libilzma using configure options. These fixes added two new #defines to config.h: HAVE_ENCODERS and HAVE_DECODERS.
