Users who are planning to upgrade from earlier lessfs versions without transaction support should only use this version when they use the file_io backend. You will loose data when you upgrade an older lessfs version to lessfs-1.0.4..lessfs-1.0.7 when you use the file_io backend!
This release enables lessfs to be mounted without the need to specify other options then the configuration file and the mountpoint. Please consult the manual for more details. Eric D. Garver contributed a patch that makes the build process less picky about missing GNU files like INSTALL and NEWS. A bug in lessfs_read has been found by extensive testing with fsx-linux. In cases where a sparse block of data would be followed by a normal block, lessfs_read would return wrong data in some cases. Added automatic migration support for older lessfs versions.
