rsync 3.3.1

rsync is a replacement for rcp (and scp) that has many more features. It uses the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand.

3.3.110 Apr 2024 06:45 minor bugfix: ## Changes in this version: ### : The included popt to avoid a memory error on modern gcc versions. ### INTERNAL: - Updated included popt to version 1.19.
3.3.007 Apr 2024 00:57 minor bugfix: BUG FIXES: Fixed a bug with --sparse --inplace where a trailing gap in the source file would not clear out the trailing data in the destination file. Fixed an buffer overflow in the checksum2 code if SHA1 is being used for the checksum2 algorithm. Fixed an issue when rsync is compiled using _FORTIFY_SOURCE so that the extra tests don't complain about a strlcpy() limit value (which was too large, even though it wasn't possible for the larger value to cause an overflow). Add a backtick to the list of characters that the filename quoting needs to escape using backslashes. Fixed a string-comparison issue in the internal handling of --progress (a locale such as tr_TR.utf-8 needed the internal triggering of --info options to use upper-case flag names to ensure that they match). Make sure that a local transfer marks the sender side as trusted. Change the argv handling to work with a newer popt library - - one that likes to free more data than it used to. Rsync now calls OpenSSL_add_all_algorithms() when compiled against an older openssl library. Fixed a problem in the daemon auth for older protocols (29 and before) if the openssl library is being used to compute MD4 checksums. Fixed rsync -VV on Cygwin - - it needed a flush of stdout. Fixed an old stats bug that counted devices as symlinks. ENHANCEMENTS: Enhanced rrsync with the -no-overwrite option that allows you to ensure that existing files on your restricted but writable directory can't be modified. Enhanced the manpages to mark links with .UR .UE. If your nroff doesn't support these idioms, touch the file .md2man-force in the source directory so that md-convert gets called with the --force-link-text option, and that should ensure that your manpages are still readable even with the ignored markup. Some manpage improvements on the handling of global modules. Changed the mapfrom mapto perl scripts (in the support dir) into a single pytho
