I've released rsync 2.6.4pre4.  I believe that this version will be what
gets released as 2.6.4, hopefully on Wednesday.  Please try this out
and let me know if anything is amiss.

All the changes since 2.6.3 are mentioned here:


You'll also find a preview of the man pages in the same dir (as usual):


The changes since 2.6.4pre3 are as follows:

    - Fixed the listing of files on an rsync daemon that is version
      2.6.3 or before.

    - Fixed the saving of the state of the --dirs option in a
      protocol-29 batch file. Also added the saving of --compress.

    - Got rid of the customized death message when talking to pre1/pre2
      version of 2.6.4 (since everyone should have upgraded to pre3 by

    - Don't reject --dry-run with --read-batch or --write-batch.
      Instead, output what changes would be made without --dry-run (but
      do nothing).

    - Limit the maximum fuzzy-name distance the --fuzzy option will
      accept when looking for an alternate basis file. Also fixed a bug
      in the parsing of each file's suffix.

    - Tweaked the generator to do any --delete-after processing and any
      directory tweaking after any --delay-updates processing has

    - Reversed the meaning of the '<' or '>' prefix that is output by
      the log-format's "%i" escape when files are transferred.

    - Documented the --protocol=NUM option (which can be useful for
      creating batch files with an older protocol version).
