8.58. file-roller

Updated file-roller packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
File Roller is an application for creating and viewing archives files, such as tar or zip files.

Bug Fix

Previously, the file-roller application did not correctly handle file names with spaces. As a consequence, an error could occur when adding files to an archive because names with spaces were not properly recognized by file-roller, for example when using the 'Compress' menu item in the Nautilus file manager. With this update, file-roller uses the correct API to handle file names. As a result, archives are created as expected and errors no longer occur in the described situation.
Users of file-roller are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
