AIR - Automated Image and Restore / News: Recent posts

air-1.2.8 released

AIR version 1.2.8 contains the following updates:

- support for newer versions of dcfldd (>1.2.2) that support SHA hashes as well as MD5.
- a "conv=" options field has been added.
- a key field for cryptcat sessions has been added allowing the user to specify a non-default encryption key.

Additionally, verification of compressed images appears to be fixed. During verification, earlier versions of AIR weren't decompressing the data stream before hashing, which meant it conflicted with the hash generated by the source (since it was generated pre-compression).

air-1.2.7 released

air-1.2.7 is a bugfix release for a bug introduced in 1.2.6.

In 1.2.6 I had a "use Tk::DirSelect;" that was a bit premature and I forgot to remove it. Commenting out this line in 1.2.6 will be functionally identical to this 1.2.7 release.

air-1.2.5 released

Smarter installer:
- checks the version of Perl/Tk installed on a system and if it is old, downloads the new version.
- checks for uudecode on the system before proceeding. Most installation errors are due to uudecode not being on the system.

New features:
- added image splitting.
- minor bugfixes and code clean-up
