Addressed an issue introduced in an upcoming update to Sierra in which CCC was unable to mount recovery volumes to determine their OS versions.
Improved the sanity check that CCC imposes when responding to a system clock change notification. The previous sanity check that we had imposed was not sufficiently avoiding rescheduling tasks when the system clock was changed to 2040 and then back to a sane time.
Minor improvements to the CCC command-line utility.
Addressed an issue in which CCC would errantly mark tasks as suspended on systems with exceptionally slow startup disks.
Fixed a logic issue that could cause a backup task to appear stalled in the "Creating an archive of the Recovery HD" phase in cases where the source recovery volume could not be unmounted.
Addressed a race condition that could occasionally cause CCC's helper tool to crash upon launch. While this was uncommon, it could occasionally lead to corruption of CCC's keychain if that keychain was getting created upon loading the helper tool.
