All Fixes and new features

  • slk_helpers hsm2json
    • new command

    • extract file metadata from the HSM (StrongLink) and printed/written out as JSON

  • slk_helpers json2hsm
    • new command

    • read metadata from a JSON file and to write this metadata to the StrongLink metadata database

  • slk_helpers list_search
    • in the past, all search results were collected and printed all together in the end; now, the results are printed continuously

  • slk_helpers metadata
    • got the parameter --alternative-output-format which will cause metadata to print a slightly modified output which might be simpler to parse

Known issues

  • Collecting search results takes some time: 20 to 60 seconds per 1000 results. Therefore, slk_helpers list_search collects small sets of results and prints them repeatedly until all search results are printed. There might be a break of up to one minute until a subsequent set of results is printed.
