Great update, Nick! Thanks!!
I just noticed .deb packages are being released (probably for some time, but just noticed it today), so I've removed the previous version I had manually installed on /usr/local/* from the release ZIP file, and installed the deb on one of my Ubuntu (18.04) and on one of my Devuan (2.0 ASCII) machines. Worked perfectly on both instances.
I then examined
dpkg -L rclone and noticed it includes a /usr/share/rclone/README.html (OK, the ZIP included one too, but I never installed it ), so I opened with a browser (eg,
firefox file:///usr/share/rclone/README.html for a look).
I found some discrepancies/oddities I think might be issues:
Changelog v1.51.0 - 2020-02-01 New backends Memory (Nick Craig-Wood) Sugarsync (Nick Craig-Wood)
"Memory" and "Sugarsync" above are shown as links, but pointing to "file://memory" and "file://sugarsync" respectively, which of course don't work.
Configure [...] See the following for detailed instructions for 1Fichier Alias Amazon Drive [... lots of other REMOTEs ...]
Here, the issue is that each REMOTE ("1Fichier", "Alias", etc) links to
https://rclone.org/REMOTE, and not to
#REMOTE so it could be read inside the same local README.html document instead of going on-line to the Rclone website (which I think kinda defeats the purpose of having a local README.html file).
I'm not sure whether this is something 'fixable' (perhaps it's an unavoidable "feature" of whatever tool is used to generate the README.html file, or something similar), but I thought it would be better to point it out.
@ncw, if you want me to open an issue for this, please tell.
