Wydawca NEWS -- history of user-visible changes. 2013-03-12
Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Sergey Poznyakoff
See the end of file for copying conditions.

Please send Wydawca bug reports to <bug-wydawca@gnu.org.ua>.


Version 2.99.90

Version 2.2 "HGY", 2013-01-01

* Implements upload protocol version 1.2

* Input file locations include start and end columns.

* When available, uses inotify(7) to watch the input spools.

The use of inotify allows wydawca to act immediately upon finished
uploads without the need of external notifications.  This makes the
TCP-based notification unnecessary on GNU/Linux systems.


Version 2.1 "KMB", 2010-01-06

* Incompatible changes

The following meta-variables are renamed:

   Old name              New name
   ---------------+---------------------
   triplet:full          triplet:ls:full         
   triplet:upload        triplet:ls:upload
   triplet:dist          triplet:ls:dist  
   triplet:sig           triplet:ls:sig   
   triplet:dir           triplet:ls:dir

The expansions of {triplet:ls:full} and {triplet:ls:upload} include
trailing newline. This means that if your config contains one of these
variables on a line by itself, you will need to add $- at the end of
that line, to suppress an extra newline. See "listings" in subsection
4.14.4 "Event Notification", for an example.
   
To update your configuration, use the following (extended) sed expression:

   s/\{(triplet):(full|upload)\}/{\1:ls:\2}$-/g
   s/\{(triplet):(dist|sig|dir)\}/{\1:ls:\2}/g
   
* Distribution verification.

The new keyword `check-script' defines a shell script to
verify the submitted tarball. See the documentation, section
4.12 "Distribution Verification", for details.

* New configuration statements

sql default {
  config-file "file";
  config-group "grp";
}

The `config-file' statement specifies the SQL configuration file
to use. The `config-group' statement indicates the group in that
file to read. The defaults for both statements depend on the
underlying database implementation. Currently only MySQL is supported,
so the defaults are "/etc/my.cnf" for "file", and "client" for
"group".

These options can be used to store security-sensitive information
in another file, and thus to relax permission requirements for
wydawca.rc.

* New meta-variables

   email:admin   Full email address of the systems administrator.
   email:owner   Full email address of the project administrator.
   email:user    Full email address of the user who did the upload.

Note: `email:user' is not to be confused with `user:email'. The latter
is expanded to email address only, while the former yields full email
address, i.e. an address with a personal part, e.g.:

    "Ty Coon" <ty@coon.org>

* New meta-construct

The special construct $-, when used in message texts, causes removal
of the character following it. Its intended use is primarily to
remove the following newline character (like dnl in m4).


Version 2.0, 2009-12-22

* Configuration file support rewritten from scratch.

New configuration file is well structured.

* Message templates can include timers.

A timer is a special variable that is replaced by the
actual amount of time (real or CPU), spent while performing
a certain task.

* New `daemon' mode

The daemon mode allows to update submission target directories
in real time.

In this mode, Wydawca can receive upload notifications from
GNU Rush.

* TCP wrapper support.

Access to the wydawca socket can be controlled using TCP wrappers.

* Wydawca runs as a non-privileged user.
* Spool locking.
* Support for GPG signing of outgoing messages.
* Submissions can be uploaded via anonymous FTP.
* Uploaders are not required to have an account on wydawca server.
* Per-spool notifications.

Mail notifications can be configured on a per-spool basis.

* Mail notifications can be sent to arbitrary email addresses.

* Testsuite.


Version 1.2, 2009-01-22

* Implicit signature archivation.

When archivation of `file' is requested by `archive: file' statement
in the directive file, the file `file.sig' will also be archived.

This behavior can be disabled by setting `archive-signatures no' in
the wydawca configuration file.

* Symlink removal

When handling `symlink: src dst' statement, existing `dst' is silently
removed, if it is a symbolic link. If it exists, but is not a symlink
an error is signalled and operation is aborted.

* Bugfixes

Fixed handling of standalone directives.


Version 1.1, 2009-01-17

* Log detailed statistics only if at least one counter is not zero.

* Handling of the `symlink' directive.

If the symlink target exists, it is silently removed and the new link
is created. This behavior is compatible with that of ftp.gnu.org.


Version 1.0, 2008-08-23

	First release.
