FEDORA-2017-d121ac795a created by hobbes1069 5 years ago for Fedora 25
  • Merged pull requests: #109, #114

  • Fixed editing of compound menu variables (eg: BackupFilesOnly).

  • Made tarPipe in lib/BackupPC/Xfer/ non-blocking to avoid a reported deadlock when BackupPC's select() returns ok for reading, but there are no bytes to read from the client tar's log/stdout output. Thanks to Matt Bedynek for running various tests and providing debugging insights to track this down.

  • Better error checking when using $f->read() on pool files. Thanks to Cody Jackson for tracking down this issue, related to reading corrupted compressed pool files. There's also an additional fix in backuppc-xs (version 0.54).

  • Cleans up any orphan temporary pool writing files.

  • Fixed utf-8 output in SCGI.

  • Fixed a reference counting bug in BackupPC_tarExtract.

  • Fixed rsync restore transfer byte total, reported by Alexander Moisseev

  • Replaced logo href with

  • On a v3->v4 upgrade, remove the new --one-file-system flag from the new RsyncArgs if it wasn't there before.

  • Added /usr/local/bin to search path in from Alexander Moisseev (#109).

  • Avoid missing or extra quotes when replacing misused undef or empty string values in from Alexander Moisseev (#114).

  • Chasing down a still unsolved bug with help from Lano and Dieter Fauth where newly added pool files in uncompressed backups get removed by BackupPC_refCountUpdate during a long-running backup, or if BackupPC_migrateV3toV4 is running. Two workarounds added in this release: BackupPC_migrateV3toV4 will now exit if BackupPC is running, and BackupPC_refCountUpdate only removes pool files that are more than a week old.
