git-annex 8.20201103 released with these changes

  • move: Improve resuming a move that was interrupted after the object was transferred, in cases where numcopies checks prevented the resumed move from dropping the object from the source repository.
  • When a special remote has chunking enabled, but no chunk sizes are recorded (or the recorded ones are not found), speculatively try chunks using the configured chunk size.
  • Fixed some problems that prevented this command from working: git submodule foreach git annex init
  • Improve shutdown process for external special remotes and external backends. Make sure to relay any remaining stderr from the process, and potentially avoid the process getting a SIGPIPE if it writes to stderr too late.
  • Fix a bug that prevented linux standalone bundle from working on a fresh install.
  • Windows build changed to one done by the datalad-extensions project using Github actions.
  • Windows build now includes libmagic, so mimetype and mimeencoding will work. Thanks to John Thorvald Wodder II and Yaroslav Halchenko for their work on this.
  • view: Avoid using ':' from metadata when generating a view, because it's a special character on Windows ("c:")
  • Fix a memory leak introduced in the last release.
  • add, import: Fix a reversion in 7.20191009 that broke handling of --largerthan and --smallerthan.
  • view: Fix a reversion in 8.20200522 that broke entering or changing views.
  • Fix build on Windows with network-3.
  • testremote: Display exceptions when tests fail, to aid debugging.
