Change Logs

* Fri Jan 05 2018
- Update to version 1.16.2:
  * Make the test suite less chatty
  * Various build system improvements
  * Fixes to the systemd unit to make it work again with recent
  * Point to the nbd mailinglist, rather than to the maintainer's
    personal email address, for bug reports.
* Thu Nov 23 2017
- Replace references to /var/adm/fillup-templates with new
  %_fillupdir macro (boo#1069468)
* Fri Oct 13 2017
- Disable restart on update to keep existing client connections alive
* Thu Sep 07 2017
- Add nbd-client.service which will provide a nbd@.service to
  allow other units to require a nbd@nbd0.service if /etc/nbdtab
  is configured accordingly
* Thu Jun 08 2017
- Update to version 3.16.1:
  * Only change is a minor bugfix from 3.16, so that
  - -enable-syslog is unbroken.
- Changes for version 3.16.0:
  * Implement the NBD_OPT_GO and NBD_OPT_INFO negotiation options
    in both the client and the server, and use them in preference
    over NBD_OPT_EXPORT_NAME (but fall back to the latter in case
    the serverdoesn't support NBD_OPT_GO).
  * Make sure we still run the postrun command, even if the
    connection was  closed improperly.
  * Add a new "waitfile" parameter.
  * Make sure that nbd compiles on non-Linux platforms again, in
    the face of all variants of the GnuTLS options.
  * Various fixes for issues found by Coverity
* Fri Mar 24 2017
- Update to version 3.15.2:
  * Fix the copyonwrite situation with multiple threads. This has
    been broken since nbd 3.12, where multiple outstanding writes
    could corrupt the copyonwrite diff file.
  * Build system improvements so that things work again if
    nbd-client isn't buildable while GnuTLS is enabled
  * Documentation updates
  * Fixes to the GnuTLS usage, and the ability to configure the
    priority string for that library
- Changes for version 3.15.1:
  * minor but crucial fix in the handling of the WRITE_ZEROES
    command, which would otherwise not work in cooperation with
- Changes for version 3.15.0:
  * Implement NBD_CMD_WRITE_ZEROES, for efficiently writing large
    numbers of zeroes (server side implementation only)
  * (optional) support for NBD_OPT_STARTTLS, using GnuTLS.
  * Support for multiplexing commands over multiple connections,
    for improving performance (requires Linux 4.10 or above).
  * Support for using splice(), also for improving performance
  * Protocol errors during negotiation now are accompanied by a
    human-readable error string.
  * Fix the handling of maxconnections, so that it is not a global
    setting (over all exports) but rather a per-export setting.
  * Fix handling of unknown options sent to the server. Previously
    we would desync from the protocol, causing another error and a
  * Produce a log message when the address family of the client
    socket does not match the expected address family in the
    authfile handling. A proper fix would convert IPv4 sockets to
    v6-mapped v4 sockets, but that's much more complicated.
  * and various other minor fixes too small to mention here; see
    the changelog
- Changes for version 3.14.0:
  * Major review of doc/, with many clarifications.
  * Some bug fixes for nbd-server that were discovered during the
    extensive updates to
  * Some fixes for non-Linux platforms,
  * Some minor incremental improvements to the new nbdtab
  * Fix the way we tell the kernel about really small exports,
  * Removal of references to the no longer supported oldstyle from
    all documentation
  * Minor updates, clarifications, and syntax fixes for man pages
    and other documentation
  * Addition of a systemd unit file for nbd-client. This requires a
    kernel which issues change events upon disconnect
    (commit 37091fdd83), and a udev which correctly sets
- Drop init.nbd-server and support for non systemd distributions
- Drop patches:
  * nbd-2.9.25-close.diff (upstreamed)

- autoload nbd module
* Fri Feb 05 2016
- nbd-server.service: implement reload
* Sat Jan 23 2016
- Update to 3.13
  * This is mainly a bugfix release, containing fixes found in
    3.12.1 by compiling on different architectures, submitting the
    build to Coverity Scan, and some analysis of intermittent
    failures that found a race condition.
* Tue Dec 01 2015
- Update to version 3.12.1
  * ensures the source to the "nbdtab" man page is correctly shipped
    with the rest of the source.
- Changes from version 3.12
  * inetd mode should work again, now using the default export name
    in the newstyle protocol
  * when specifying an export on the server command line or not specifying
    a name on a client command line, the newstyle protocol is used with
    the default export name (but a warning will be produced stating
    that oldstyle is no longer supported)
  * All traces of oldstyle (except a few error messages) have been
  * We now listen on IPv4 and IPv6 by default, regardless of what
    the system's configuration is like, by explicitly listening both
    on and ::.
  * Some bugs in the handling of the TRIM command have been removed
  * nbd  *client now uses readit() in the negotiation, rather than
    plain non  *retrying read().
  * It is now possible to listen on multiple addresses; the
    "listenaddr" parameter has been changed into a comma  *separated
    list of addresses to listen on
  * nbd  *client now supports an nbdtab file, which allows connecting
    a device by just using the device name
  * nbd  *server now uses a GThreadPool to implement asynchronous handling
    of requests
  * Punching holes on files is now supported on cygwin, too.
- Remove no-return-nonvoid.patch; fixed on upstream release

  * nbd_signaling_CVE-2015-0847.patch
* Fri Apr 17 2015
- Update to 3.10
  * There really is only one change since 3.9: drop of the
    "oldstyle" support from nbd-server and nbd-client.
* Thu Mar 05 2015
- Cleanup spec-file with spec-cleaner
- Do not generate config.example from README
  * add config.example as source
- Add unit file (nbd-server.service)
- Add sysconfig template (nbd-server.sysconfig)
- Add no-return-nonvoid.patch
- Update requirements
- Update to 3.9
  * AF_UNIX support
  * Fixed test suite on non-GNU getopt() implementations
  * New "treefiles" mode, which exports a gazillion of page-sized
    files; useful for exporting things which are stored on an
    SSHFS or amazon AWS (trough FUSE) or similar, where every
    write causes an upload to the backend storage
  * New "cowdir" option, allowing to specify where copy-on-write
    files are written.
  * Minor changes so that nbd-client can now also be compiled for
    the Android platform. This required removal of the -swap
    command line option, which requires the mlockall() system
    call, unavailable on Android.
  * Protocol update: a reserved bit is used to avoid sending
    the 124 bytes of useless data at the beginning of the
    negotiation. The change is implemented so that things will
    still work with clients not supporting this option, however.
  * gznbd is now built by the same build system, rather than
    a separate one. Note however that gznbd is still
    unmaintained; it should be considered a "contrib" feature.
  * "nbd-server -V" will now output the nbd-server version number.
  * Various fixes found through Coverity and the clang static
    analyzer, and lots of other minor things too small to
    mention here.
