- Update to version 2.5.0:
* Document the LockFile option in the GeoIP.conf man page.
* Remove unused base64 library.
* Add the new configuration option PreserveFileTimes. If set, the
downloaded files will get the same modification times as their
original on the server. Default is 0 (unset).
* Use the correct types when calling curl_easy_setopt().
* In GeoIP.conf, the UserId option was renamed to AccountID and
the ProductIds option was renamed to EditionIDs. The old
options will continue to work, but upgrading to the new names
is recommended for forward compatibility.
- Cleanup previous changelog entry
- Run tests during build
2017-10-16 -
- Update to version 2.4.0:
* geoipupdate now checks that the database directory is writable.
If it is not, it reports the problem and aborts.
* geoipupdate now acquires a lock when starting up to ensure only
one instance may run at a time. A new option, LockFile, exists
to set the file to use as a lock. By default, LockFile is the
file .geoipupdate.lock in the database directory.
* geoipupdate now prints out additional information from the
server when a download request results in something other than
HTTP status 2xx. This provides more information when the API
does not respond with a database file. In conjunction with
changes to the download service itself, errors such as lacking
a subscription no longer show up with the message "not a valid
gzip file".
* ${datarootdir}/GeoIP is now created on make install.
2017-01-05 -
- Update to version 2.3.1:
* geoipupdate now uses TCP keep-alive when compiled with cURL
7.25 or greater.
* Previously, on an invalid gzip file, geoipupdate would output
binary data to stderr. It now displays an appropriate error
* Install README, ChangeLog, GeoIP.conf.default etc into docdir.
* $(sysconfdir) is now created if it doesn't exist.
* The sample config file is now usable.
2016-07-01 -
- Fix Group tag.
2016-02-04 -
- Update to version 2.2.2
* geoipupdate now calls fsync on the database directory after a
rename to make it durable in the event of a crash.
2015-11-08 -
- Update to version 2.2.1
* Version bump to fix PPA issue
- Changes from version 2.2.0
* geoipupdate now verifies the MD5 of the new database before
deploying it. If the database MD5 does not match the expected MD5,
geoipupdate will exit with an error.
* The copy of base64.c and base64.h was switched to a version under
GPL 2+ to prevent a license conflict.
* The LICENSE file was added to the distribution.
* Several issues in the documentation were fixed.
