./archivers/gtar-base, The GNU tape archiver with remote magnetic tape support

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.34, Package name: gtar-base-1.34, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GNU tar, originally shipped as NetBSD's "tar" up to version 1.3, is a
full-featured tar command that can access remote and local magnetic tapes,
tar files (ustar, POSIX, and V7), and even compressed or gzipped versions
of these. Note that as of the current version of GNU tar (1.12), gtar
does not create "correct" ustar archives.

Log message:
gtar: Update to 1.33

version 1.33 - Sergey Poznyakoff, 2021-01-07

* POSIX extended format headers do not include PID by default

The intent is to make binary-equivalent PAX archives easy to create.  If
POSIXLY_CORRECT is set, the POSIX standard default is used, which embeds
the pid.

* --delay-directory-restore works for archives with reversed member ordering

* Fix extraction of a symbolic link hardlinked to another symbolic link

* Wildcards in exclude-vcs-ignore mode don't match slash

* Fix the --no-overwrite-dir option

Given this option, previous versions of tar failed to preserve
permissions of empty directories and to create files under directories
owned by the current user that did not have the S_IWUSR bit set.

* Fix handling of chained renames in incremental backups

* Link counting works for file names supplied with -T

* Accept only position-sensitive (file-selection) options in file list files.

Using such options as -f, -z, etc. is senseless in a file list file and
bypasses option consistency checks in decode_options.  Therefore,
only options related to file selection (a.k.a position-sensitive options)
are allowed in file list files.

Log message:
Update to 1.31

version 1.31 - Sergey Poznyakoff, 2019-01-02

* Fix heap-buffer-overrun with --one-top-level.
Bug introduced with the addition of that option in 1.28.

* Support for zstd compression

New option '--zstd' instructs tar to use zstd as compression program.
When listing, extractng and comparing, zstd compressed archives are
recognized automatically.
When '-a' option is in effect, zstd compression is selected if the
destination archive name ends in '.zst' or '.tzst'.

* The -K option interacts properly with member names given in the command line

Names of members to extract can be specified along with the "-K NAME"
option. In this case, tar will extract NAME and those of named members
that appear in the archive after it, which is consistent with the
semantics of the option.

Previous versions of tar extracted NAME, those of named members that
appeared before it, and everything after it.

* Fix CVE-2018-20482

When creating archives with the --sparse option, previous versions of
tar would loop endlessly if a sparse file had been truncated while
being archived.
