Item posted by Sergey Poznyakoff <gray> on Fri Sep 17 14:07:50 2004.

Cpio version 2.5.90 is available from ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/cpio. This is an alpha release. A list of user-visible changes since version 2.5 follows:

  • Added NLS support
  • Improved configure script
  • cpio --help output largely improved
  • Printing the warning about truncation of inode numbers is suppressed by default.
  • New option --warning (-W) allows to control verbosity of warning messages
  • New option --to-stdout extracts files to standard output.
  • Bugfixes:
    • If a file grew N bytes in copy-pass mode, these N bytes got prepended to the contents of all subsequent files
    • Padding the archive upon truncation of the file being archived was broken.
