	see file bin/_ATTENTION_ for detailed information

	storeBackupls.pl
	added option -v for verbose information

	storeBackup.pl
	- correction of minor errors
	- added list parameter(s) otherBackupDirs
	  allows you to hard link to older trees from the same backup
	  allows you to hard link to backup trees of another backup series
	  This gives you the possiblity to share data via hard link between
	  independent backups. See README file for more information (search
	  for 'otherBackupDirs').

	storeBackupVersion.pl + storeBackupRecover.pl
	- compatible with new file format

----------------------------
version 1.8.1    2002.08.19
	Error fixing:
	storeBackup.pl
	- didn't build dbm(filename) correctly when first backup with
	  otherBackupDirs
	- pattern for recognizing of relative part of backup path did not
	  work with some strange path names, pattern replaced with substr
	  and length
	- if the directory to backup was empty, then no .md5CheckSum.bz2
	  was created

----------------------------
version 1.9      2002.08.26
	storeBackup.pl
	- new option --chmodMD5File
	- total internal replacement for handling --onlyMD5Check
	  is now handled in ::buildDBMs -> nearly as fast as without
	  --onlyMD5Check
	- new option --printDepth
	- options --onlyMD5Check and --onlyMD5CheckOn are now only needed
	  if hard linking with other backups (see otherBackupDirs)

----------------------------
version 1.9.1    2002.08.31
	storeBackup.pl
	- performance improvement when copying small files (< 100KB)
	- error fix: --onlyMD5Check was not as fast as described in v1.9
	  du to an error when making the package (but fortunately the
	  correct version was in my backup)

	versions are now (overall checksum):
	storeBackup.pl -V              => 1.3138
	storeBackupls.pl -V            => 1.2626
	storeBackupVersions.pl -V      => 1.4091
	storeBackupRecover.pl -V       => 1.3454
	storeBackupConvertBackup.pl -V => 2.0844

----------------------------
version 1.10	 2002.10.20
	storeBackup.pl
	- options --onlyMD5Check and --onlyMD5CheckOn are now obsolete
	  storeBackup decides itself, if the functionality is needed
	- you do not have to worry when using 'otherBackupDirs' if it's not
	  yet ready. this is recognized automatically
	- added options --withUserGroupStat --userGroupStatFile

	versions are now (overall checksum):
	storeBackup.pl -V              => 1.3325
	storeBackupls.pl -V            => 1.2966
	storeBackupVersions.pl -V      => 1.4295
	storeBackupRecover.pl -V       => 1.3709
	storeBackupConvertBackup.pl -V => 2.0844

----------------------------
version 1.10.1	 2002.10.27
	storeBackup.pl + storeBackupRecover.pl
	- replaced syscall lchown with fork-exec chown
	  because of error messages with perl 5.8 (SuSE 8.1)

	versions are now (overall checksum):
	storeBackup.pl -V              => 1.3334
	storeBackupls.pl -V            => 1.2966
	storeBackupVersions.pl -V      => 1.4295
	storeBackupRecover.pl -V       => 1.3722
	storeBackupConvertBackup.pl -V => 2.0844

----------------------------
version 1.11	 2003.03.05
	storeBackup.pl
	- --exceptSuffix: removed '.bmp', added '.pgp'
	- changed default of parameter --logFile

	  restore the original version. This is because of the missing
	  option '-d' in file .md5CheckSums.info. Wrong version:
	     uncompress=bzip2
	  but must be
	     uncompress=bzip2 -d
	  Change this line with an editor or use the script correct.sh

----------------------------
version 1.19.2  2005.11.13

	- exceptPattern has gone, now there is exceptRule (different syntax)
	- includePattern has gone, now there is includeRule (different syntax)
	- new option writeExcludeLog
	- setting time on (absolute) symbolic link resulted in setting time
	  in the original file -> corrected
	storeBackupUpdateBackup.pl
	- new program
	- sets links asynchronously after running storeBackup with lateLinks
	storeBackupSearch.pl
	- new program
	- allows searching in backups with a free definition depending on
	  filename, size, uid, gid, ctime, mtime and file type

----------------------------
version 2.0.1  2008.12.14
	storeBackupDel.pl:
	- option keepLastOfWeek wasn't recognized when set in

version 3.0  2009.03.15
	- support of ';' as comment sign in configuration files
	  (additionally to '#' for better readability)
	storeBackupCheckBackup.pl
	- new program, checks consistency of a backup
	storeBackupDel.pl:
	- option keepLastOfWeek wasn't recognized when set in
	  configuration file
	storeBackup.pl:
	- new options for saving files blocked:
	  checkBlocksSuffix
	  checkBlocksSuffixMinSize
	  checkBlocksSuffixBS
	  checkBlocksCompr
	- new options for saving files blocked:
	  checkBlocksRule (0-4)
	  checkBlocksBS (0-4)
	  checkBlocksCompr (0-4)
	  checkBlocksRead (0-4)
	- new options for saving devices blocked:
	  checkDevices (0-4)
	  checkDevicesDir (0-4)
	  checkDevicesBS (0-4)
	  checkDevicesCompr (0-4)
	- new option to hard link symbolic links:
	  linkSymlinks
	- new option for defining which files to compress:
	  comprRule

----------------------------
version 3.1  2009.05.24
	storeBackup.pl
	- storeBackup did not backup sockets, now it does
	- for new files, the md5 sum is now calculated before *and*
	  after copying / compressing for safety reasons. The file could
	  have been changed during that time. So the md5 sum would not
	  match the real one. A file with the firstly calculated
	  md5 sum later could be hard linked to the changed file which
	  means there is no backup of its content.
	  If both md5 sums do not match, an warning is generated and
	  the md5 sum is set to ggggg... which is a not possible value.
	  This problem does not exist for blocked files in v3.0.
	- improved statistic at the end of a run (sum of warnings
	  and errors)
	- added options checkBlocksParallel and checkDevicesParallel
	- added option linkToRecent
	- name clashes because of compressing files (eg. add .bz2)
	  were not handeld corretly - bug was introduced in 3.0
	  corrected
	- when making a backup with source=/ while not using
	  includeDir then the md5 sums of all files were calculated
	  also after the first backup
	- corrected some issues with the statistical output
	- option copyBWLimit is now deprecated because
	  - of internal performance optimization
	  - it is useless
	- new option suppressWarning
	storeBackupUpdateBackup.pl
	- if sourceDir=/, for the very first backup with option
	  lateLinks an empty 'linkFrom' file was generated which lead
	  to (useless) error messages. corrected.
	storeBackupCheckBackup.pl
	- now also checks if files in the backup are not listed
	  in .md5CheckSum
	storeBackupRecover.pl
	- the directories in the path to the restored files / directories
	  were not set the original permissions, corrected
	llt
	- added option --epoch to calculate human readable dates from
	  epoch based dates
	man
	- man pages for all programs (Thanks to Ryan Niebur)
	all programs
	- solved issues with single quotes in path and filenames

----------------------------
version 3.2  2009.07.18
	storeBackup.pl
	- new option --highLatency, useful on high latency lines
	- corrected some typos in print statements to log files
	- now also checks for size of files if files with two equal
	  md5 sums are detected
	- fixed a bug when using *block* options. storeBackup.pl stopped
	  with an error message when blocked file was existing with same
	  path, filename, contents and times in another series but did
	  not exist in the own series of that backup.
	- plus some very minor enhancements
	all programs:
	- if an option in a configuration file is set to nothing, the
	  default value (if exists) is used
