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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.35, Package name: gtar-base-1.35, 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: updated to 1.35

version 1.35

* Fail when building GNU tar, if the platform supports 64-bit time_t
  but the build uses only 32-bit time_t.

* Leave the devmajor and devminor fields empty (rather than zero) for
  non-special files, as this is more compatible with traditional tar.

* Bug fixes

** Fix interaction of --update with --wildcards.

** When extracting archives into an empty directory, do not create
   hard links to files outside that directory.

** Handle partial reads from regular files.

** Warn "file changed as we read it" less often.
   Formerly, tar warned if the file's size or ctime changed.
   However, this generated a false positive if tar read a file
   while another process hard-linked to it, changing its ctime.
   Now, tar warns if the file's size, mtime, user ID, group ID,
   or mode changes.  Although neither heuristic is perfect,
   the new one should work better in practice.

** Fix --ignore-failed-read to ignore file-changed read errors
   as far as exit status is concerned.  You can now suppress file-changed
   issues entirely with --ignore-failed-read --warning=no-file-changed.

** Fix --remove-files to not remove a file that changed while we read it.

** Fix --atime-preserve=replace to not fail if there was no need to replace,
   either because we did not read the file, or the atime did not change.

** Fix race when creating a parent directory while another process is
   also doing so.

** Fix handling of prefix keywords not followed by "." in pax headers.

** Fix handling of out-of-range sparse entries in pax headers.

** Fix handling of --transform='s/s/@/2'.

** Fix treatment of options ending in / in files-from list.

** Fix crash on 'tar --checkpoint-action exec=\"'.

** Fix low-memory crash when reading incremental dumps.

** Fix --exclude-vcs-ignores memory allocation misuse.

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.
