Summary

Release Highlights:

  • Fix inconsistent handling of duplicate directories in the shellscript.
  • Speed improvement: Do not even hash one file of a hardlink group if no -D is passed.
  • Switch default hashing algorithm to the newly implemented blake2b.
  • -o stats will print some internal statistics about a run.
  • The progressbar will display an time estimation on how long the run will take.
  • --equal is able to compare files or directories to each other.
  • -D learned to also honour the directory layout of two dirs with a special option (-j / --honour-dir-layout)
  • Many smaller bugfixes, upgrading to the latest version is advised.
Test Plan

Install update, run rmlint on directory with duplicates, and confirm that rmlint.sh runs correctly
