As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 Changes in 0.6.2
    2 - fix for using zsync client on files >2GB on 32bit systems.
    3 - fix redirect handling.
    4 - improve some edge cases dealing with unusual seed data patterns.
    5 - optimise by stopping reading seed files if target file is complete.
    6 - fix infinite loop in zsyncmake when given a truncated (invalid) .gz
    7 - fix --disable-profile to configure.
    8 
    9 Changes in 0.6.1
   10 - recompression support for gzip files made with zlib:gzio.c or gzip -n
   11 - fix compilation on MacOS X
   12 - allow HTTP redirects on the target file; not sure whether this is a good idea
   13   or not...
   14 - fix unecessary transfer of whole file where file is smaller than the context
   15   size (1x or 2x blocksize)
   16 - use sequential_matches=1 when there is only one block; otherwise we're forced
   17   to transfer the whole file for files below 2kiB
   18 - fix librcksum handling of zsync streams with sequential_matches == 1; it was 
   19   giving false negatives when applying the rsync algorithm, resulting in poor
   20   use of local source data when sequential_matches == 1 (which didn't actually
   21   occur in any recent version of zsync)
   22 
   23 Changes in 0.6
   24 - fix out-of-bounds memory access when processing last block of non-compressed
   25   download (patch from Timothy Lee). Also fix an error handling fault for the
   26   same.
   27 - fix "try a smaller blocksize" failures when zsyncmakeing for huge compressed
   28   files on 32bit systems
   29 - preserve mtime on downloaded files
   30 - fix potential crash when re/deallocating checksum hash in librcksum (patch
   31   from Timothy Lee)
   32 - explain status code errors better
   33 - better URL handling
   34 - add -q as a substitute for -s, as -q is more conventional (re wget). -q also
   35   suppresses the 'no relevant local data' warning now.
   36 - fix some warnings
   37 - code tidy-up and better commenting of what it is doing
   38 - tidy up autoconf use
   39 
   40 Changes in 0.5
   41 - get large file support where possible
   42 - replacement getaddrinfo on systems that lack it
   43 - fix compilation on MacOS X
   44 
   45 Changes in 0.4.3
   46 - make -s suppress summary info too
   47 - add HTTP authentication support
   48 
   49 Changes in 0.4.2

   53 Changes in 0.4.1
   54 - security fix from zlib-1.2.2
   55 - generate RFC 1123 date strings in HTTP requests
   56 - include port numbers in Host headers
   57 - be slightly more accepting in proxy URL syntax
   58 - don't generate Accept-Ranges headers
   59 
   60 Changes in 0.4.0
   61 - now considered beta instead of alpha quality
   62 - fixed incorrect 100%/done display of progress bar when cleanly disconnected before end by server
   63 - updated autoconf/automake scripts
   64 
   65 Changes in 0.3.3
   66 - build in gzip in zsyncmake which produces .gz files optimised for zsync
   67 - quickly stop downloading from a URL producing bad data
   68 - -k option to keep the .zsync file, and redownload only when it changes
   69 - fixes some possible crashes that could occur with unexpected remote responses
   70 
   71 Changes in 0.3.2
   72 - automatically decompress local seed data when this is appropriate
   73 - progress bars with rate and ETA for all downloads
   74 - automatically recompress downloaded file if possible
   75 - deal better with local .zsyncs containing relative URLs
   76 
   77 Changes in 0.3.1
   78 - fix SEGV when downloading with no local data found
   79 - fix failure when incomplete final block of uncompressed stream is unknown
   80 - fix some memory leaks
   81 
   82 Changes in 0.3.0

   93 
   94 Changes in 0.2.1
   95 - fixed bug where zsync would loop if fed more than one local source file
   96 - enabled zsync to handle gzip files containing stored (uncompressed) blocks (so we should do slightly better on gzipped binaries now - but this is still incomplete and will not work for all files)
   97 
   98 Changes in 0.2.0
