    2016-12-13 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.97.3) unstable; urgency=medium * In bonnie++.8 documented -c option. Closes: #639452 #631484 Noted that for latency lower is better. Closes: #717285 * Fixed the symlink creation. Closes: #823882 * Change backgroundcolor to background-color for correct CSS. Closes: #242878

    2016-06-30 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.97.2) unstable; urgency=medium * Added compat level and build-depends on debhelper >= 9 Closes: #817380 Closes: #817313 * Fix description Closes: #699576 * Added smoketest Closes: #719739 * Make it build with GCC-6

    2012-11-23 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.97.1) unstable; urgency=medium * Fixed the changelog and aim it at unstable not wheezy.

    2012-11-23 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.97) unstable; urgency=medium * Fix a CSV column alignment bug in the case where -s0 is used. Bump the data format version to 1.97. Thanks to Brian Keefer for reporting this. Also added the concurrency and seed fields to the header. Closes: #660564, #669124 * Use a const pointer for the large file test. * zcav.8 documents the maximum value of -s * Made the zcav deefault block size 512M to cope with new disks that can sustain >200MB/s. Also documented this. * Made zcav not SEGV when the -c option is used. Closes: #687668 * Describe the units for the plain text output in bonnie++.8. Closes: #643821 * Removed the outdated section in the description which referred to Lenny. Closes: #693483 * Fixed most of the HTML validation errors in the output of bon_csv2html.

    2009-07-04 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.96) unstable; urgency=low * Fix a minor bug in setting the GID. * Make it build on Solaris by checking for O_DIRECT being defined. * The option -n9765 or greater caused the small file test to abort, to increase this I changed the number format to hexadecimal and made it 10 digits. Now any option smaller than -n1073741824 will be OK. Thanks Nick Dokos of HP. * Updated bon_csv2html, made the machine name span two rows, made the concurrency column go away when there's no data, correctly calculated the colors of the speed columns (was off by one column before), and calculate the CPU colors.

    2008-12-31 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.95) unstable; urgency=low * Removed code for building on OS/2, I think that no-one has been interested in this for a while. * Removed code for building on NT, I don't think that anyone was ever very interested in that and it probably didn't work. * Patch from Justin Clift to make getc_putc compile on RHEL 5.2. * Added the -D option to bonnie++ to use direct IO (O_DIRECT) for bulk IO. Thanks to Dave Murch from Violin Memory - * Fixed some more warnings with recent versions of GCC.

    2008-08-19 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.94) unstable; urgency=low * Fixed typos in man page. Closes: #133714, #449596 * Added the URL to the man pages. * Documented why UID==0 is bad. Closes: #182023 * Check return value of chdir() * Removed the zcav -s option which did the same thing as -n. * Made zcav report in GiB and MiB/s, and made the default 256MiB. * Improved bonnie++.8 documentation of the -y and -p options. * Made zcav support skipping blocks for faster completion. * Fixed the autoconf checks for 64bit seek.

    2007-12-03 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.93d) unstable; urgency=low * Documented the default chunk size in bonnie++.8. * Added support for testing write speed to zcav. * Made default block size for zcav 200M.

    2003-01-08 - Russell Coker <> bonnie++ (1.93c) unstable; urgency=low * Made it compile with GCC 3.2.
