Changes for version 0.065_06

  • Switched from using Archive::Tar to Archive::Extract. The latter will attempt to use tar(1) to unpack the archive, which works much better with older archives. This is a bit slower however. If you don't have tar(1), it falls back to using Archive::Tar internally.
  • NB: Archive::Tar also reads the entire archive into memory, so that probably explains why some of you have been getting out-of-memory errors. The switch to Archive::Extract should help alleviate that problem (as long as you have tar).
