Nimi Places 20200126 released

Build 20200126 of Nimi Places fixes issues related to container initializing.

Today we release the latest build 20200126 of Nimi Places which fixes issues related to directories enlisting and container initializing.

Notably, directories circular loop (occurring when child directory has link to parent directory) detection and handling was removed.

Can directories circular loops be detected?

Detecting directories circular loops can be problematic when directory links are indistinguishable from actual directories. While circular loop could still be guessed by identifying sequences repetition, this could result in false positives if repeating sequence is just a part of naming scheme.

Avoiding directories circular loops

To avoid directories circular loops ensure that any links inside directories:

  • do not redirect to higher directory (like parent directory),
  • create loops by redirecting to looped links or directories matching criteria above.
