I have released the Bacula 2.2.8 tar source files and the Win32 binaries to
the bacula and Win32 to the Bacula Source Forge release areas. The Win32
binaries have not been tested.
Version 2.2.8 is a bug fix to version 2.2.7:
- It fixes bugs: 1036, 1033(doc), 1028, 1040, 1045(doc), 1030,
1042(partially), and possibly bugs 1018 and 1032.
Bugs 1018 and 1032 involve problems with multiple-drive autochangers,
and are difficult to reproduce.
See the ChangeLog for more details.
Note, version 2.2.8 has a few additional bugs fixed after the BETA 2.2.8
Release Version 2.2.8
kes Apply patch from Martin to correct bug #1040, bscan sets existing
ClientId to zero.
kes Fixed important spelling error in doc -- bug #1045.
kes Move initialization of read/write res lock earlier in the code.
This fixes the crash with a null conf file. This fixes bug
kes Redefine CURES in lib/parse_conf to be URES and move it all
into lib/parse_conf.c -- this responds to bug #1042, but does
not fix it. The fix is not to compile with FORTIFY_SOURCE.
kes Backport fix de-referencing a NULL pointer in the scanner from
the trunk SVN. I don't think this was reported as a bug.
Beta release Version 2.2.8
kes Re-enable the new job code editing (%f).
kes Fix bsnprintf for float point numbers. I broke recently when
parameterizing some variables.
kes Move Heartbeat documentation from Job to Director resource.
This fixes bug #1033.
kes Fix existing switch drive SD code to call autochanger to release
any old volume. This must be done to keep the autochanger from
releasing subsequently newly reserved volumes in doing a close().
This should possibly fix bugs #1032 and #1018.
kes Apply big backport of current SVN SD code that corrects a number
of race conditions. This is a first step in fixing bug #1018.
ebl Fixes bug #1028 where "Selection Type" option was not usable
