- Prior to this update, tar failed to match and extract given file names from an archive when this archive was created with the options "--sparse" and "--posix". This update modifies the underlying code to match and extract the given name as expected.
- When the "--strip-components" command-line parameter was used, the tar utility was unable to correctly match a file name that had to be extracted and the action failed. This bug has been fixed and tar now matches file names as expected in the described scenario.
- When the "--listed-incremental" command-line parameter was used and a file was specified multiple times, tar terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. The underlying source code has been modified and tar no longer crashes under these circumstances.
