Fedora Update Notification

Name        : fsarchiver
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.5.6
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.fsarchiver.org
Summary     : Safe and flexible file-system backup/deployment tool
Description :
FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a
file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored
on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a
different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the
file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is
checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive
is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

Update Information:

New Upstream Version:        * Fixed execution of command having an argument
with spaces (restfs was broken when the fs label had spaces)      * Better error
message when attempting to save an ntfs filesystem which is already mounted with
ntfs-3g       * Fixed segfault when the decompression function fails      *
Fixed decompression problems with lzma due to memory limit to low       * Fixed
problems in the management of SIGINT when the Ctrl+C is pressed to abort      *
Fixed warning about xattr attributes being too large when the size returned is
-1      * Bug fix: fuse filesystems were not unmounted correctly after a fatal
error       * Support for extended attributes up to 64k (the size was limited to
1024 bytes)      * The file header is only copied if open64() is successful
(prevents header with no data)      * Management of files which are truncated
during a live-backup (padding with zeros)      * Test to make sure it cannot
archive the archive itself during a live-backup      * Improved error management
when there are problems on files or attributes in create.c
