Below is a summary (from the doc/CHANGES file) of changes
since release 3.0.4:

xfsdump-3.0.5 (30 March 2011)
        - Release tags will now be digitally signed
        - Quota files will now be dumped, regardless of the maxsize
        - The new "-s sessid" flag allows inventory sessions to be
          pruned by their session ID.
        - Fixed a bug in handling long dump filenames, and dropped
          (undocumented) support for encoding certain parameters
          within the dump filename
        - NODECHK is now off by default, meaning xfsrestore will now
          support 16 times more directory entries (4 billion)
        - nrh_t is now 64 bits wide, allowing xfsrestore to support
          dumps with up to 4 billion directory entries
        - nix_t is no longer useful, and has been eliminated
        - Memory use in xfsrestore is better managed now.  Segments
          of nodes are now power-of-2 sized, and allocated nodes are
          no longer needlessly zeroed and linked into the free list.
        - Pathname resolution in xfsrestore has a number of
          performance improvements
        - Better checking has been implemented for compatibility
          when resuming a cumulative restore
        - Build system output has been cleaned up considerably
        - Dead "namreg" code has been removed
        - Build dependencies are now determined automatically
        - Other miscellaneous build system improvements, as well bug
          fixes thanks to Mike Frysinger and Arkadiusz Miśkiewicz.
