Release 1.1.0 is now available via


This is a feature relase, focused on cleaning up local files if the
configuration changes over time.

IMPORTANT: If you are upgrading from a previous release, you need to
either delete all existing database tables or create a new DB, followed
by running "fangfrisch initdb".

* Clean up previously downloaded files when their local path changes.
  This can happen when "filename_xyz" entries are added or modified.
  Suggested by @amishmm.

* When a provider section is disabled, clean up associated virus
  signature files. This feature can optionally be disabled using the
  new "cleanup" configuration parameter. Suggested by @amishmm.

* Running "fangfrisch --force initdb" will attempt to drop existing tables.

* Introduce the "dumpmappings" action. This allows passing URL-to-filepath
  mappings recorded in the database to utilities like "awk" without
  accessing the DB directly.

Thanks to Amish for his suggestions and for testing the new features.
