Changes between versions 0.4b37 and 0.4b38 (released January 7, 2005)
1. Fix a couple of troff syntax bugs in the man pages.
Thanks to Eric Raymond <firstname.lastname@example.org> for the patch.
2. Made restore use either libncurses or libtermcap, depending
on which one is available at configure time.
3. Fixed restore negative size display bug when comparing a
dump containing files over 2GB. Thanks to Steve Bonds
<email@example.com> for the bug report.
4. Do not save directory entries to non-dumped inodes
(excluded from dump). This will eliminate the 'missing
file' warnings when doing 'restore -C'.
5. Fix dump crash when backuping a huge (2TB) filesystem,
due to a bogus calculation on the inode map size.
Thanks to Kevin B. Haines <K.B.Haines@rl.ac.uk> for
submitting the bug and testing the fix.
6. Fix a problem in restore where the final \0 in the symbolic
link names could have been lost, generating corrupt filenames.
Thanks to Kyle Wilson <firstname.lastname@example.org> for reporting the
7. Implemented a hash list for the directory names in restore.
The linear list used before caused problems in interactive
restores when dealing with directories having thousands of
entries. Thanks to Brian Ristuccia <email@example.com>
for reporting the bug.
8. Improved restore -C, this time including the directory
attributes into the comparision.
9. Made restore understand tapes containing EA/ACLs (which will
be dumped by the next version of dump). In this version
extended attributes on the tape are ignored, for full EA/ACL
support wait for the next version or try the experimental EA

FYI, I'm currently running the upstream RPM with the EA patch on FC2.
It builds fine and I'll cc any reports of problems here.
Hold off on this one. I just ran into problems with restore -C
(compare) trying to actually restore files, not a good thing.
Kenneth, thanks for the update announce. I built dump-0.4b38 including
the experimental patch to devel. I'm going to build updates for FC2,
FC3 likely without the patch.
