NEWS for the Linux download scripts, version 1.22-esr

Release date: 2022-01-30
Development branch: esr-11.9
Supported version: WSUS Offline Update, Community Edition 11.9.11 hotfix2

Bug fixes

  • Better handling of filenames with spaces, thanks to mani

    The URLs in the file ../static/StaticDownloadLinks-win-glb.txt used to be percent-encoded, e.g. spaces in the filename were replaced with %20. This was changed in Community Edition 11.9.11, and now spaces are used literally.

    The necessary changes for the Linux scripts are already included in Community Edition 11.9.11 hotfix1.

  • Fixed a possible permission error with find, thanks to Steve A

    A permission error may occur, if the command "find" tries to parse the lost+found directory, which is found at the root level of partitions.

    Replacing find with a list of known dummy files should fix this.

Internal changes

  • The files OptionList.txt and OptionList-wildcard.txt are updated from GitLab

  • Obsolete files from restructuring of C++ updates are removed

  • Unified the functions extract_ids_and_filenames and extract_ids_and_filenames_dos, as in the master development branch

  • Simplified the creation of the selection dialogs

  • Renamed function verify_embedded_checksums to verify_embedded_hashes

  • Cosmetics

Removed Features

  • Removed support for Silverlight

    Microsoft discontinued support for Silverlight on October 12th, 2021.

    References for Silverlight were removed from the files ExcludeListISO-*.txt and ExcludeListUSB-*.txt in the wsusoffline/sh/exclude directory.
