FSVS 1.0.5 released

Message Hello everybody,

FSVS 1.0.5 is released.

----- Excerpt from http://fsvs.tigris.org

FSVS stands for “Fast System VerSioning”, “File System VerSioning” or
“Full System VerSioning”. It aims to become a complete backup/restore tool
for all files in a directory tree or whole filesystems, with a subversion
repository as the backend.
You may think of it as some kind of tar or rsync with versioned storage.

----- Excerpt ends

The new release got some bugs fixed; it's notable points are
- testing framework extended with new tests.
  You'll need rsync 2.6.7 to complete the tests successfull, though.
- update and commit now write MD5 checksums for blocks of variable size,
  to accelerate checking for changed files (note: only applies if
  size equal to expected value, but timestamp changed).
  In the future I'd hope to send only changed data into the repository,
  using that mechanism.
- export command added for easier recovery of files/directories.
- can optionally checksum *all* files, not only changed (virus checking)
- a small compatibility fix (subversion uses "link " for symlinks, fsvs
  used "link:")
- a few small performance updates.

I know that I'm missing a 1.0.4 release, but that was already taken for
another snapshot (which wasn't released); it doesn't cause me headaches.

Do not hesitate to contact me for questions and problems.
