Unison 2.5.31 binaries available for Windows and Linux
- Those who were waiting for precompiled Windows or Linux binaries before
trying out the new beta-release of Unison can go ahead now and download
them from the usual place:
No serious bugs have been discovered so far in this release, but it
should still be considered experimental.
By the way, one correction to the documentation of the new features: the
original release message said that modtimes would not necessarily be kept
in sync, but just propagated when things changed. We decided this was
ugly, and changed it so that Unison now synchronizes modtimes (when the
=times preference is set) just like permission bits.
(There is one caveat: if you're synchronizing between a Windows and a
Unix machine, you may see a one-second difference between the modtimes
after synchronization. This is because times are actually represented
differently by the two sorts of filesystems: Windows cannot represent
modtimes with an odd number of seconds.)
