rsync friendly file encryption / News: Recent posts

Version 1.14 of rsyncrypto has been released

Version 1.14 of rsyncrypto has been released. Rsyncrypto is a rsync friendly file encryption, where localized modifications in the plain text file result in localized modifications in the cypher text file, to preserve rsync's efficiency over the wire.

Main change is a bug fix for a problem with passing both --filelist and --trim to rsyncrypto.

This version temporarily dropped Windows support. Windows support will resume as soon as we manage to port the project files to Visual Studio 2015. Help on that front would be greatly appreciated.

Rsyncrypto 1.08 released

Version 1.08 of rsyncrypto has been released. Rsyncrypto is a rsync friendly file encryption, where localized modifications in the plain text file result in localized modifications in the cypher text file, to preserve rsync's efficiency over the wire.

Do not use version 1.00

Due to an unforseen regression, rsyncrypto 1.00 is not recommended for production use. An updated version will be posted as soon as it's ready.

In the mean while, it is recommended that interested parties use version 0.19. It has a decryption only bug affecting only Windows, and only files larger than 4GB.
