Tar 1.24

Item posted by Sergey Poznyakoff <gray> on Sun 24 Oct 2010 10:56:57 PM UTC.

GNU tar 1.24 is available for download. Main changes in this release:

  • The --full-time option.
  • More reliable directory traversal when creating archives
  • --dereference consistency.
  • Extracts symlink attributes, such as last-modified time and link permissions, if the operating system supports this.
  • Fixed spurious error diagnostics on broken pipe.
  • Fixed --remove-files bug (previous version would fail to remove a directory which contained symlinks to another files within that directory).
  • Allows to use --label together with --update.
  • The options --record-size and --tape-length (-L) accept size suffixes.
  • Fixed dead loop on extracting existing symlinks with the -k option.

See the NEWS file for a detailed list of changes.
