Tarsnap 1.0.33 is now available. This new version brings:
1. Metadata caching during --fsck, --fsck-prune, and multi-archive delete
operations. The impact of this will vary depending on how much (meta)data
archives share, but users testing this have typically reported a 5x - 10x
2. A reduction in the size of tarsnap's internal "chunks" directory structure.
On systems with a large amount of data stored, this is the largest contributor
to RAM usage; on 32-bit machines this reduces tarsnap's memory usage by about
10%, while on 64-bit machines it reduces tarsnap's memory usage by about 30%.
3. A bug fix to the --newer* options: They now correctly descend into old
directories (depending on normal directory-tree-traversal parameters) in order
to look for files which are new enough to be archived. (Note however that the
usual purpose of this option -- incremental backups -- is redundant given that
Tarsnap has built-in deduplication.)
4. Other minor bug fixes and improvements.
The new release is available from the usual location:
