  174. Jan 07, 2009: New archive_read_disk_entry_from_file() knows about ACLs,
  175. extended attributes, etc so that bsdtar and bsdcpio don't require
  176. such system-specific knowledge.
  177. Jan 03, 2009: Read filter system extensively refactored. In particular,
  178. read filter pipelines are now built out automatically and individual
  179. filters should be much easier to implement. Documentation on the
  180. Googlecode Wiki explains how to implement new filters.
  181. Dec 28, 2008: Many Windows/Visual Studio fixes from Michihiro NAKAJIMA.
  182. Dec 28, 2008: Main libarchive development moved from FreeBSD Perforce

  191. Nov 08, 2008: Start of pre-release testing for libarchive 2.6
  192. Nov 07, 2008: Read filter refactor: The decompression routines just
  193. consume and produce arbitrarily-sized blocks. The reblocking
  194. from read_support_compression_none() has been pulled into the
  195. read core. Also, the decompression bid now makes multiple
  196. passes and stacks read filters.
  197. Oct 21, 2008: bsdcpio: New command-line parser.
  198. Oct 19, 2008: Internal read_ahead change: short reads are now an error

  202. Sep 17, 2008: Pedro Giffuni: birthtime support
  203. Sep 17, 2008: Miklos Vajna: lzma reader and test. Note: I still have
  204. some concerns about the auto-detection (LZMA file format
  205. doesn't support auto-detection well), so this is not yet
  206. enabled under archive_read_support_compression_all(). For
  207. now, you must call archive_read_support_compression_lzma() if
  208. you want LZMA read support.
  209. Sep 11, 2008: Ivailo Petrov: Many fixes to Windows build, new solution files
  210. Jul 26, 2008: archive_entry now tracks which values have not been set.
  211. This helps zip extraction (file size is often "unknown") and
  212. time restores (tar usually doesn't know atime).
  213. Jul 26, 2008: Joerg Sonnenberger: Performance improvements to shar writer
  214. Jul 25, 2008: Joerg Sonnenberger: mtree write support

  224. for the Windows makefiles, thanks to Kees Zeelenberg for
  225. code contributions.
  226. May 21, 2008: Fix a number of non-exploitable integer and buffer overflows,
  227. thanks to David Remahl at Apple for pointing these out.
  228. May 21, 2008: Colin Percival: SIGINFO or SIGUSR1 to bsdtar prints progress info
  229. May 16, 2008: bsdtar's test harness no longer depends on file ordering.
  230. This was causing spurious test failures on a lot of systems.
  231. Thanks to Bernhard R. Link for the diagnosis.
  232. May 14, 2008: Joerg Sonnenberger: -s substitution support for bsdtar
  233. May 13, 2008: Joerg Sonnenberger: Many mtree improvements

  235. hardlinks have different permissions from original file
  236. April 30, 2008: Primary libarchive work has been moved into the FreeBSD
  237. project's Perforce repository: http://perforce.freebsd.org/
  238. The libarchive project can be browsed at
  239. //depot/user/kientzle/libarchive-portable
  240. Direct link: http://preview.tinyurl.com/46mdgr
  241. May 04, 2008: libarchive 2.5.3b released
  242. * libarchive: Several fixes to link resolver to address bsdcpio crashes
  243. * bsdcpio: -p hardlink handling fixes
  244. * tar/pax: Ensure ustar dirnames end in '/'; be more careful about
  245. measuring filenames when deciding what pathname fields to use
  246. * libarchive: Mark which entry strings are set; be accurate about
  247. distinguishing empty strings ("") from unset ones (NULL)
  248. * tar: Don't crash reading entries with empty filenames
  249. * libarchive_test, bsdtar_test, bsdcpio_test: Better defaults:
  250. run all tests, delete temp dirs, summarize repeated failures
  251. * -no-undefined to libtool for Cygwin
  252. * libarchive_test: Skip large file tests on systems with 32-bit off_t
  253. * iso9660: Don't bother trying to find the body of an empty file;
  254. this works around strange behavior from some ISO9660 writers
  255. * tar: allow -r -T to be used together
  256. * tar: allow --format with -r or -u
  257. * libarchive: Don't build archive.h
  258. May 04, 2008: Simplified building: archive.h is no longer constructed
  259. This may require additional #if conditionals on some platforms.
  260. Mar 30, 2008: libarchive 2.5.1b released
  261. Mar 15, 2008: libarchive 2.5.0b released
  262. Mar 15, 2008: bsdcpio now seems to correctly write hardlinks into newc,
  263. ustar, and old cpio archives. Just a little more testing before
  264. bsdcpio 1.0 becomes a reality.
  265. Mar 15, 2008: I think the new linkify() interface is finally handling
  266. all known hardlink strategies.

  270. now have built-in decoding logic that decodes the reference
  271. files as they are needed.
  272. Mar 14, 2008: libarchive 2.4.14 released; identical to 2.4.13 except for
  273. a point fix for gname/uname mixup in pax format that was introduced
  274. with the UTF-8 fixes.
  275. Feb 26, 2008: libarchive 2.4.13 released

  282. bsdcpio still needs to be converted to use this.
  283. Feb 02, 2008: Windows compatibility fixes from Ivailo Petrov, Kees Zeelenberg
  284. Jan 30, 2008: Ignore hardlink size for non-POSIX tar archives.

  288. bsdcpio_test complains about missing options (-y and -z), format
  289. of informational messages (--version, --help), and a minor formatting
  290. issue in odc format output. After this update, bsdcpio_test uncovered
  291. several more cosmetic issues in bsdcpio, all now fixed.
  292. Jan 22, 2008: Experimental support for self-extracting Zip archives.
  293. Jan 22, 2008: Extend hardlink restore strategy to work correctly with
  294. hardlinks extracted from newc cpio files. (Which store the body
  295. only with the last occurrence of a link.)
  296. Dec 30, 2007: libarchive 2.4.11 released
  297. Dec 30, 2007: Fixed a compile error in bsdcpio on some systems.

  308. Dec 10, 2007: libarchive 2.4.6 released
  309. Dec 09, 2007: tar/test/test_copy.c verifies "tar -c | tar -x" copy pipeline
  310. Dec 07, 2007: Fix a couple of minor memory leaks.
  311. Dec 04, 2007: libarchive 2.4.5 released
  312. Dec 04, 2007: Fix cpio/test/test_write_odc by setting the umask first.
  313. Dec 03, 2007: libarchive 2.4.4 released
  314. Dec 03, 2007: New configure options --disable-xattr and --disable-acl,
  315. thanks to Samuli Suominen.
  316. Dec 03, 2007: libarchive 2.4.3 released
  317. Dec 03, 2007: Thanks to Lapo Luchini for sending me a ZIP file that
  318. libarchive couldn't handle. Fixed a bug in handling of
  319. "length at end" flags in ZIP files.
  320. Dec 03, 2007: Fixed bsdcpio -help, bsdtar -help tests.
  321. Dec 02, 2007: First cut at real bsdtar test harness.
  322. Dec 02, 2007: libarchive 2.4.2 released
  323. Dec 02, 2007: libarchive 2.4.1 released
  324. Dec 02, 2007: Minor fixes, rough cut of mdoc-to-man conversion for
  325. man pages.
  326. Oct 30, 2007: libarchive 2.4.0 released
  327. Oct 30, 2007: Minor compile fix thanks to Joerg Schilling.
  328. Oct 30, 2007: Only run the format auction once at the beginning of the
  329. archive. This is simpler and supports better error recovery.
  330. Oct 29, 2007: Test support for very large entries in tar archives:
  331. libarchive_test now exercises entries from 2GB up to 1TB.
  332. Oct 27, 2007: libarchive 2.3.5 released
  333. Oct 27, 2007: Correct some unnecessary internal data copying in the
  334. "compression none" reader and writer; this reduces user time
  335. by up to 2/3 in some tests. (Thanks to Jan Psota for
  336. publishing his performance test results to GNU tar's bug-tar
  337. mailing list; those results pointed me towards this problem.)
  338. Oct 27, 2007: Fix for skipping archive entries that are exactly
  339. a multiple of 4G on 32-bit platforms.
  340. Oct 25, 2007: Fix for reading very large (>8G) tar archives; this was
  341. broken when I put in support for new GNU tar sparse formats.
  342. Oct 20, 2007: Initial work on new pattern-matching code for cpio; I
  343. hope this eventually replaces the code currently in bsdtar.
  344. Oct 08, 2007: libarchive 2.3.4 released
  345. Oct 05, 2007: Continuing work on bsdcpio test suite.
  346. Oct 05, 2007: New cpio.5 manpage, updates to "History" of bsdcpio.1 and
  347. bsdtar.1 manpages.
  348. Oct 05, 2007: Fix zip reader to immediately return EOF if you try
  349. to read body of non-regular file. In particular, this fixes
  350. bsdtar extraction of zip archives.
  351. Sep 30, 2007: libarchive 2.3.3 released
  352. Sep 26, 2007: Rework Makefile.am so that the enable/disable options
  353. actually do the right things.
  354. Sep 26, 2007: cpio-odc and cpio-newc archives no longer write bodies
  355. for non-regular files.
  356. Sep 26, 2007: Test harness for bsdcpio is in place, needs more tests written.
  357. This is much nicer than the ragtag collection of test scripts
  358. that bsdtar has.
  359. Sep 20, 2007: libarchive 2.3.2 released
  360. Sep 20, 2007: libarchive 2.3.1 broke bsdtar because the archive_write_data()
  361. fix was implemented incorrectly.
  362. Sep 16, 2007: libarchive 2.3.1 released
  363. Sep 16, 2007: Many fixes to bsdcpio 0.3: handle hardlinks with -p, recognize
  364. block size on writing, fix a couple of segfaults.
  365. Sep 16, 2007: Fixed return value from archive_write_data() when used
  366. with archive_write_disk() to match the documentation and other
  367. instances of this same function.
  368. Sep 15, 2007: Add archive_entry_link_resolver, archive_entry_strmode
  369. Sep 11, 2007: libarchive 2.2.8 released
  370. Sep 09, 2007: bsdcpio 0.2 supports most (not yet all) of the old POSIX spec.
  371. Sep 01, 2007: libarchive 2.2.7 released
  372. Aug 31, 2007: Support for reading mtree files, including an mtree.5 manpage
  373. (A little experimental still.)
  374. Aug 18, 2007: Read gtar 1.17 --posix --sparse entries.
  375. Aug 13, 2007: Refined suid/sgid restore handling; it is no longer
  376. an error if suid/sgid bits are dropped when you request
  377. perm restore but don't request owner restore.
  378. Aug 06, 2007: Use --enable-bsdcpio if you want to try bsdcpio
  379. Aug 05, 2007: libarchive 2.2.6 released
  380. Aug 05, 2007: New configure option --disable-bsdtar, thanks to Joerg
  381. Sonnenberger.
  382. Aug 05, 2007: Several bug fixes from FreeBSD CVS repo.
  383. Jul 13, 2007: libarchive 2.2.5 released
  384. Jul 12, 2007: libarchive 2.2.4 released
  385. Jul 12, 2007: Thanks to Colin Percival's help in diagnosing and
  386. fixing several critical security bugs. Details available at
  387. http://security.freebsd.org/advisories/FreeBSD-SA-07:05.libarchive.asc
  388. May 26, 2007: libarchive 2.2.3 released
  389. May 26, 2007: Fix memory leaks in ZIP reader and shar writer, add some
  390. missing system headers to archive_entry.h, dead code cleanup
  391. from Colin Percival, more tests for gzip/bzip2, fix an
  392. EOF anomaly in bzip2 decompression.
  393. May 12, 2007: libarchive 2.2.2 released
  394. May 12, 2007: Fix archive_write_disk permission restore by cloning
  395. entry passed into write_header so that permission info is
  396. still available at finish_entry time. (archive_read_extract()
  397. worked okay because it held onto the passed-in entry, but
  398. direct consumers of archive_write_disk would break). This
  399. required fixing archive_entry_clone(), which now works and has
  400. a reasonably complete test case.
  401. May 10, 2007: Skeletal cpio implementation.
  402. May 06, 2007: libarchive 2.2.1 released
  403. May 06, 2007: Flesh out a lot more of test_entry.c so as to catch
  404. problems such as the device node breakage before releasing <sigh>.
  405. May 05, 2007: Fix a bad bug introduced in 2.1.9 that broke device
  406. node entries in tar archives.
  407. May 03, 2007: Move 'struct stat' out of archive_entry core as well.
  408. This removes some portability headaches and fixes a bunch
  409. of corner cases that arise when manipulating archives on
  410. dissimilar systems.
  411. Apr 30, 2007: libarchive 2.1.10 released
  412. Apr 31, 2007: Minor code cleanup.
  413. Apr 24, 2007: libarchive 2.1.9 released
  414. Apr 24, 2007: Fix some recently-introduced problems with libraries
  415. (Just let automake handle it and it all works much better.)
  416. Finish isolating major()/minor()/makedev() in archive_entry.c.
  417. Apr 23, 2007: libarchive 2.1.8 released
  418. Apr 23, 2007: Minor fixes found from building on MacOS X
  419. Apr 22, 2007: libarchive 2.1.7 released
  420. Apr 22, 2007: Eliminated all uses of 'struct stat' from the
  421. format readers/writers. This should improve portability;
  422. 'struct stat' is now only used in archive_entry and in
  423. code that actually touches the disk.
  424. Apr 17, 2007: libarchive 2.1.6 released
  425. Libarchive now compiles and passes all tests on Interix.
  426. Apr 16, 2007: libarchive 2.1.5 released
  427. Apr 15, 2007: libarchive 2.1b2 released
  428. Apr 15, 2007: New libarchive_internals.3 documentation of internal APIs.
  429. Not complete, but should prove helpful.
  430. Apr 15, 2007: Experimental "read_compress_program" and "write_compress_program"
  431. for using libarchive with external compression. Not yet
  432. well tested, and likely has portability issues. Feedback
  433. appreciated.
  434. Apr 14, 2007: libarchive 2.0.31 released
  435. Apr 14, 2007: More fixes for Interix, more 'ar' work
  436. Apr 14, 2007: libarchive 2.0.30 released
  437. Apr 13, 2007: libarchive now enforces trailing '/' on dirs
  438. written to tar archives
  439. Apr 11, 2007: libarchive 2.0.29 released
  440. Apr 11, 2007: Make it easier to statically configure for different platforms.
  441. Apr 11, 2007: Updated config.guess, config.sub, libtool
  442. Apr 06, 2007: libarchive 2.0.28 released
  443. Apr 06, 2007: 'ar' format read/write support thanks to Kai Wang.
  444. Apr 01, 2007: libarchive 2.0.27 released
  445. Mar 31, 2007: Several minor fixes from Colin Percival and Joerg Sonnenberger.
  446. Mar 12, 2007: libarchive 2.0.25 released
  447. Mar 12, 2007: Fix broken --unlink flag.
  448. Mar 11, 2007: libarchive 2.0.24 released
  449. Mar 10, 2007: Correct an ACL blunder that causes any ACL with an entry
  450. that refers to a non-existent user or group to not be restored correctly.
  451. The fix both makes the parser more tolerant (so that archives created
  452. with the buggy ACLs can be read now) and corrects the ACL formatter.
  453. Mar 10, 2007: More work on test portability to Linux.
  454. Mar 10, 2007: libarchive 2.0.22 released
  455. Mar 10, 2007: Header cleanups; added linux/fs.h, removed
  456. some unnecessary headers, added #include guards in bsdtar.
  457. If you see any obvious compile failures from this, let me know.
  458. Mar 10, 2007: Work on bsdtar test scripts: not yet robust enough
  459. to enable as part of "make check", but getting better.
  460. Mar 10, 2007: libarchive now returns ARCHIVE_FAILED when
  461. a header write fails in a way that only affects this item.
  462. Less bad than ARCHIVE_FATAL, but worse than ARCHIVE_WARN.
  463. Mar 07, 2007: libarchive 2.0.21 released
  464. Mar 07, 2007: Add some ACL tests (only for the system-independent
  465. portion of the ACL support for now).
  466. Mar 07, 2007: tar's ability to read ACLs off disk got
  467. turned off for FreeBSD; re-enable it. (ACL restores and
  468. libarchive support for storing/reading ACLs from pax
  469. archives was unaffected.)
  470. Mar 02, 2007: libarchive 2.0.20 released
  471. Mar 2, 2007: It's not perfect, but it's pretty good.
  472. Libarchive 2.0 is officially out of beta.
  473. Feb 28, 2007: libarchive 2.0b17 released
  474. Feb 27, 2007: Make the GID restore checks more robust by checking
  475. whether the current user has too few or too many privileges.
  476. Feb 26, 2007: libarchive 2.0b15 released
  477. Feb 26, 2007: Don't lose symlinks when extracting from ISOs.
  478. Thanks to Diego "Flameeyes" Pettenò for telling me about the
  479. broken testcase on Gentoo that (finally!) led me to the cause
  480. of this long-standing bug.
  481. Feb 26, 2007: libarchive 2.0b14 released
  482. Feb 26, 2007: Fix a broken test on platforms that lack lchmod().
  483. Feb 25, 2007: libarchive 2.0b13 released
  484. Feb 25, 2007: Empty archives were being written as empty files,
  485. without a proper end-of-archive marker. Fixed.
  486. Feb 23, 2007: libarchive 2.0b12 released
  487. Feb 22, 2007: Basic security checks added: _EXTRACT_SECURE_NODOTDOT
  488. and _EXTRACT_SECURE_SYMLINK. These checks used to be in bsdtar,
  489. but they belong down in libarchive where they can be used by
  490. other tools and where they can be better optimized.
  491. Feb 11, 2007: libarchive 2.0b11 released
  492. Feb 10, 2007: Fixed a bunch of errors in libarchive's handling
  493. of EXTRACT_PERM and EXTRACT_OWNER, especially relating
  494. to SUID and SGID bits.
  495. Jan 31, 2007: libarchive 2.0b9 released
  496. Jan 31, 2007: Added read support for "empty" archives as a
  497. distinct archive format. Bsdtar uses this to handle, e.g.,
  498. "touch foo.tar; tar -rf foo.tar"
  499. Jan 22, 2007: libarchive 2.0b6 released
  500. Jan 22, 2007: archive_write_disk API is now in place. It provides
  501. a finer-grained interface than archive_read_extract. In particular,
  502. you can use it to create objects on disk without having an archive
  503. around (just feed it archive_entry objects describing what you
  504. want to create), you can override the uname/gname-to-uid/gid lookups
  505. (minitar uses this to avoid getpwXXX() and getgrXXX() bloat).
  506. Jan 09, 2007: libarchive 2.0a3 released
  507. Jan 9, 2007: archive_extract is now much better; it handles the
  508. most common cases with a minimal number of system calls.
  509. Some features still need a lot of testing, especially corner
  510. cases involving objects that already exist on disk. I expect
  511. the next round of API overhaul will simplify building test cases.
  512. Jan 9, 2007: a number of fixes thanks to Colin Percival, especially
  513. corrections to the skip() framework and handling of large files.
  514. Jan 9, 2007: Fixes for large ISOs. The code should correctly handle
  515. very large ISOs with entries up to 4G. Thanks to Robert Sciuk
  516. for pointing out these issues.
  517. Sep 05, 2006: libarchive 1.3.1 released
  518. Sep 5, 2006: Bump version to 1.3 for new I/O wrappers.
  519. Sep 4, 2006: New memory and FILE read/write wrappers.
  520. Sep 4, 2006: libarchive test harness is now minimally functional;
  521. it's located a few minor bugs in error-handling logic
  522. Aug 17, 2006: libarchive 1.2.54 released
  523. Aug 17, 2006: Outline ABI changes for libarchive 2.0; these
  524. are protected behind #ifdef's until I think I've found everything
  525. that needs to change.
  526. Aug 17, 2006: Fix error-handling in archive_read/write_close()
  527. They weren't returning any errors before.
  528. Aug 17, 2006: Fix recursive-add logic to not trigger if it's not set
  529. Fixes a bug adding files when writing archive to pipe or when
  530. using archive_write_open() directly.
  531. Jul 2006: New "skip" handling improves performance extracting
  532. single files from large uncompressed archives.
  533. Mar 21, 2006: 1.2.52 released
  534. Mar 21, 2006: Fix -p on platforms that don't have platform-specific
  535. extended attribute code.
  536. Mar 20, 2006: Add NEWS file; fill in some older history from other
  537. files. I'll try to keep this file up-to-date from now on.
  538. OLDER NEWS SUMMARIES
  539. Mar 19, 2006: libarchive 1.2.51 released
  540. Mar 18, 2006: Many fixes to extended attribute support, including a redesign
  541. of the storage format to simplify debugging.
  542. Mar 12, 2006: Remove 'tp' support; it was a fun idea, but not worth
  543. spending much time on.
  544. Mar 11, 2006: Incorporated Jaakko Heinonen's still-experimental support
  545. for extended attributes (Currently Linux-only.).
  546. Mar 11, 2006: Reorganized distribution package: There is now one tar.gz
  547. file that builds both libarchive and bsdtar.
  548. Feb 13, 2006: Minor bug fixes: correctly read cpio device entries, write
  549. Pax attribute entry names.
  550. Nov 7, 2005: Experimental 'tp' format support in libarchive. Feedback
  551. appreciated; this is not enabled by archive_read_support_format_all()
  552. yet as I'm not quite content with the format detection heuristics.
  553. Nov 7, 2005: Some more portability improvements thanks to Darin Broady,
  554. minor bugfixes.
  555. Oct 12, 2005: Use GNU libtool to build shared libraries on many systems.
  556. Aug 9, 2005: Correctly detect that MacOS X does not have POSIX ACLs.
  557. Apr 17, 2005: Kees Zeelenberg has ported libarchive and bsdtar to Windows:
  558. http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/
  559. Apr 11, 2005: Extended Zip/Zip64 support thanks to Dan Nelson. -L/-h
  560. fix from Jaakko Heinonen.
  561. Mar 12, 2005: archive_read_extract can now handle very long
  562. pathnames (I've tested with pathnames up to 1MB).
  563. Mar 12, 2005: Marcus Geiger has written an article about libarchive
  564. http://xsnil.antbear.org/2005/02/05/archive-mit-libarchive-verarbeiten/
  565. including examples of using it from Objective-C. His MoinX
  566. http://moinx.antbear.org/ desktop Wiki uses
  567. libarchive for archiving and restoring Wiki pages.
  568. Jan 22, 2005: Preliminary ZIP extraction support,
  569. new directory-walking code for bsdtar.
  570. Jan 16, 2005: ISO9660 extraction code added; manpage corrections.
  571. May 22, 2004: Many gtar-compatible long options have been added; almost
  572. all FreeBSD ports extract correctly with bsdtar.
  573. May 18, 2004: bsdtar can read Solaris, HP-UX, Unixware, star, gtar,
  574. and pdtar archives.
