Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Its features include splitting archives over several files, DVD, CD, ZIP, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links, extended attributes, file forks, Door inodes, and sparse files, remote backup using pipes and external commands (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the "slices" of an existing archive. It can run commands between slices, before and after saving some defined files or directories (for a proper database backup, for example), and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Several external GUIs exist as alternatives to its CLI interface, like kdar, DarGUI, SaraB, etc.

Release 2.4.9 brings several minor fixes.

It fixes a bug in dar 2.4.x releases which led dar,
in certain circumstances,
to save hard-linked inodes even when files had not changed since the archive of reference was done
(differential backup).

The "security warning" has been restricted to only show for plain files.

This release fixes a Segfault met when adding to a dar_manger database an archive having an empty string as
a basename.

It modifies dar_manager to consider ctime in addition to mtime for data
timestamps, resulting in
fewer warnings about mis-ordered archives in a database.
