DiskTRIM / News: Recent posts

Version 0.09

Fixed an error which made the application read disk statistics using the wrong order. This made the application show the wrong amount of writes made.

Default block size should have been 512B instead of 4KiB. Block size has therefore been renamed to sector size which will enable saved targets to re-initiate this variable. This change will effect statistics for the amount of data read and the amount of data written.

The application should now save its data upon log out and shutdown signals.
The log output will now use the word 'finished' instead of 'stopped'.
The main application icon will now also switch to yellow when Time/Writes remaining reaches 90%.
The update button in setup tab will now only be activated if one of the settings has been changed.

Added a tool called count-zeroes

Added a tool to count the number of blocks containing zeroes on the disk or file. This tool might be useful for checking if TRIM is working. The source package also includes pre-built binaries for Jaunty/Karmic/Lucid. This is a command line tool only.

Version 0.07 ready for download

Added a script to the deb files which upon purge, will remove all the data and configuration files.

The application will now try to use a different user than root for the GUI. The part communicating with wiper.sh is placed in a separate thread still running as root. This change will improve the security of the application.
It's also possible to select which user the application should be run as by giving one of the following options, --UID=VALUE or --user_name=VALUE.
By default the application will use the environment variable HOME. System settings for this folder will then be used to determine the user ID. If --home=VALUE is set, then settings from this folder will be used.
