Rsyncrypto 0.16-beta1 is now available for download from the sourceforge
site. This version sports filename encryption, after long long last.
At the moment, this support is fairly incomplete (hence the "beta"
status). It will encrypt file names when doing recursive
encryption/decryption, but not when doing filelist
encryption/decryption. It will also not encrypt file names when doing
single file encryption/decryption, but this is not considerd a bug at
Consideration as to what should be the right thing to do when using
"--meta-encrypt" and neither "-r" nor "--filelist" is still done. I
think that, for decryption, I'll assume that "src" is a name of a
directory to which encryption was done using one of "-r" or
"--filelist", diging out a single file from the archive. The exact
semantics for such a move are not clear, however. Your ideas welcome. In
any case, 0.16 will come out without support for that command line
Also note that compiling rsyncrypto on Windows does not currently work.
I've added a compatibility function to the compatibility layer, and have
not yet ported that new function to Windows. I'll only get around to
doing that after I finish getting filelist to work, so if anyone else is
interested in picking that task up, you're welcome to it. It should be
fairly easy. Just try to compile on Windows, see what function the
linker complains that is missing, and look at the Unix implementation of
a function with the same name to figure out what the function should do.
Most of all, however, I'm shipping this beta version to get your
feedback. Please let me know how it works out for you.
