The long awaited s3cmd 0.9.8.4 has finally been released with the
* Re-issue temporarily failed requests
- This should get rid of all those annoying "Connection resets",
"Server internal errors", etc, occasional temporary errors. Should a
request fail it will be re-issued up to 5x.
* Restored access to upper-case named buckets
- However Amazon doesn't allow upper-case buckets in EU datacentre.
* Improved handling of filenames with non-ascii characters.
- This is a long lasting story and every time there is someone who
complains that their national alphabet is not handled correctly
by s3cmd. Since 0.9.8.4 all filenames are (should be) internally
converted to Unicode. Hope that will sort most problems out. This
change should have no effect if you only use basic US alphabet.
* Doesn't run out of open files quota on sync with lots of files.
- When syncing lots of files from S3 to local directory some users
ran out of file handles. This shouldn't happen anymore.
* Sync skips over files that can't be open instead of
terminating the sync completely.
- Self explanatory.
* Avoid ZeroDivisionError on ultrafast links (for instance
on Amazon EC2)
- Also self explanatory I believe.
* A couple of small bug fixes
In other words s3cmd 0.9.8.4 should be *much* more stable and resilient
to temporary errors then any earlier version.
Thanks to all users who provided feedback, bug reports and patches.
I appreciate your effort to make s3cmd better!
Source package is available here:
If you're using openSUSE, SUSE Enterprise, Fedora, RedHat Enterprise or
CentOS the best way to keep your s3cmd up to date is to add s3cmd
repository to your 'yum' or 'yast' config.
