- update to 0.7 (bsc#966695):
Bug fixes
* Separate locking files are no longer used which avoids deadlock in
cases where the system is stopped in the small window where these
files exist.
* Files are now synced after writing for better Durability.
* crudini no longer removes a blank line from the start of a file
which has no sections, or options outside a section. [bug
introduced in version 0.5]
Bug fixes
* Lock files are cleaned up robustly. Previously there was a race
condition resulting in blocked subsequent edits, due to a
lingering lock file.
* --del will ignore requests to delete a parameter in a non-existing
section (unless --existing is used). Previously it failed citing
the missing section.
New features
* The --existing option takes parameters to give more control over
what needs to pre-exist. So you can specify for example that a
file needs to exist, but any items within it are created as
* A new --verbose option was added to indicate on stderr wether the
request resulted in a config change or not. This can be used to
determine whether to restart programs etc.
Changes in behavior
* Files are created by default if missing, unless --existing is
* Protections against creating unparseable ini files were added.
* stdin can be parsed just as with normal files.
* File writes are avoided if there are no changes to the config.
