osync v1.00.pre Release Notes

    • ๐Ÿ”จ Improved and refactored the soft deletion routine by merging conflict backup and soft deletion
      • Reworked soft deletion code to handle a case where a top level directory gets deleted even if the files contained in it are not old enough (this obviously shouldn't happen on most FS)
      • Added more logging
    • ๐Ÿ”€ Merged various fixes from onovy (http://github.com/onovy) Thanks!
      • Lowered sleep time between commands
      • Check if master and slave directories are the same
      • Check script parameters in osync.sh and osync-batch.sh
      • Run sync after timeout in --on-changes mode when no changes are detected (helps propagate slave changes)
      • Fix for locking in --on-changes mode (child should lock/unlock, master process shouldn't unlock)
      • Remote user is now optional in quicksync mode
    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Replaced default script execution storage from /dev/shm to /tmp because some rootkit detection software doesn't like this
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed bogus error in DEBUG for quicksync mode where no max execution time is set
    • Prevent debug mode to send alert emails
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed an infamous bug introduced with exclude pattern globbing preventing multiple exludes to be processed
    • Fixed an issue with empty RSYNC_EXCLUDE_FILES
    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Lowered default compression level for email alerts (for low end systems)
    • Prevent exclude pattern globbing before the pattern reaches the rsync cmd
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed some missing child pids for time control to work
    • ๐Ÿ”€ Prevent creation of a sync-id less log file when DEBUG is set
    • Added a sequential run batch script that can rerun failed batches
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed an issue where a failed task never gets resumed after a successfull file replication phase
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Added experimental partial downloads support for rsync so big files can be resumed on slow links
