We wrote about Grsync before, an open source rsync GUI (Graphical User Interface) which you can use for file and directory synchronization (for backups, etc.).
Grsync 1.1.0 was released 2 days ago and it adds some small new features as well as some bugs fixed:
- "Use tray icon" preferences option added.
- Autogen.sh script upgraded.
- Modified Makefile.am to exclude subversion directories from the tar distribution file, other small fixes.
- Added --protect-args option, on by default, solves the "remote filename with spaces" problem.
- Fixed bug: doesn't save "itemized changes list" option.
- French translation updated (Thanks François).
- Added mime type definition for grsync session files with icon.
- Updated desktop file to open session files with "grsync -i".
- Made some fixes which could make grsync more stable on some systems.
- Added "run as superuser" extra options switch, uses "pkexec" from policykit.
- Added rsync child watch function.
- Added rsync process exit status output.
- Fixed behaviour when rsync window is closed not by using the close button.
- Added "contribute" menu item.
- Added workaround for freebsd and mac os X glib child watch problem.
- Fixed scrolling to end on pause.
Because Grsync deserves more attention, I decided to package the latest 1.1.0 in a .deb file (for Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid) since both Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid have version 0.9.2 in the official repositories.
Download Grsync 1.1.0 .deb:
Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid):
64bit: grsync_1.1.1~webupd8~lucid_amd64.deb (131.0 KiB)
32bit: grsync_1.1.1~webupd8~lucid_i386.deb (126.9 KiB)
Karmic 9.10 (Karmic):
64bit: grsync_1.1.1~webupd8~karmic_amd64.deb (130.7 KiB)
32bit: grsync_1.1.1~webupd8~karmic_i386.deb (129.8 KiB)
If you're using the WebUpd8 PPA, all you have to do is:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install grsync
If you're not using Ubuntu, download Grsync 1.1.0 source packages from HERE.
Update: I updated the download links to Grsync 1.1.1.
