[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify tar-1.31.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 3602B07F55D0C732

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.15
  Makeinfo 5.9.93
  Gnulib v0.1-2313-g4652c7b

List of changes in this release:

* Fix heap-buffer-overrun with --one-top-level.

Bug introduced with the addition of that option in 1.28.

* Support for zstd compression

New option '--zstd' instructs tar to use zstd as compression program.
When listing, extractng and comparing, zstd compressed archives are
recognized automatically.
When '-a' option is in effect, zstd compression is selected if the
destination archive name ends in '.zst' or '.tzst'.

* The -K option interacts properly with member names given in the command line

Names of members to extract can be specified along with the "-K NAME"
option. In this case, tar will extract NAME and those of named members
that appear in the archive after it, which is consistent with the
semantics of the option.

* Fix CVE-2018-20482

When creating archives with the --sparse option, previous versions of
tar would loop endlessly if a sparse file had been truncated while
being archived.
