[ANNOUNCE] FSVS 1.1.5 released

Message Hello everybody,

FSVS 1.1.5 is released.


Sorry for yelling, but I think that's important:
*** The WAA format has changed a bit. ***

- You can now safely remove your FSVS spool directory ($FSVS_WAA,
  "/var/spool/fsvs") to free a bit of space if needed.
- The important settings, like URLs and ignore patterns, can now be
  versioned like any other file too.

The second point is the most important here.
(Once upon a time I had planned to fold the ignore patterns into
"svn:ignore" properties - but they just don't match the syntax.
So I took that simpler way.

(Note: you can still override both defaults, using the environment
variables $FSVS_WAA and $FSVS_CONF.)

What other changes have been done since 1.1.4?
- Diff now knows "-v" for additional meta-data diff.
- Some cleanups and small bugfixes.
- A changed ctime is no longer seen as meta-data change - it's only an
  indicator for *possible* changes.
- For new, added and unversioned entries no other flags than those are
  printed on "fsvs status" - they're kind of irrelevant, as they're
  implied. (So you won't see "mtime changed" on a new entry).
- New parameter -f for filtering entries.
- If no path arguments are given, the current directory is taken as the
  implicit parameter.

And a more important change:
- Option for path display settings.
  You can now choose how you want the paths printed; see
  for details.

Downloads are available from http://freshmeat.net​/projects/fsvs;
support on users@ (or, for code-internal things, dev@) fsvs.tigris.org.
(If freshmeat is *still* not up-to-date when you read this, there's
http://fsvs.tigris.o​rg/servlets/ProjectD​ocumentList?folderID​=8182, too -
although I prefer to see the number of downloads on freshmeat :-)

For the next version I plan to do some kind of configuration file support
- so that settings like for path display can be set persistent.

Feedback is appreciated.



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
