Release Notes: Old changers have been deprecated. There are configuration file changes. The compile-time default --with-changer-device has been removed. There are changes to several of the utility programs.
Release Notes: Critical bugfixes. amtapetype has a new -p option. Many bugs have been fixed: in the S3 device driver, amcheckdump, file not being removed from the holding disk, sendbackup compatibility with a 2.4.2 server, handling of EROFS errors from a tape device, fd allocation in amandad, and a crash in amflush. ZFS snapshot names use the disk names.
Release Notes: An application API allows you to easily write wrappers around any backup program (see the 'amanda-applications' man page0. amgtar now uses GNU tar, which is a lot more configurable than the GNUTAR program. amzfs-sendrecv performs backups of a ZFS filesystem with 'zfs send'. The script API now allows you to run scripts before and after the amanda process. amzfs-snapshot takes a snapshot of a ZFS filesystem, which can then be backed up with amgtar.
Release Notes: Various device API fixes. Fixes for compilation on various platforms. Other small fixes.
Release Notes: 'amfetchdump -p', an amtapetype crash, and a planner crash have been fixed. An 'amadmin force' with strategy incronly will force a level 0 on the next run. Check has been configured to be sure it found gnutar. Other small bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: 'amverify' and 'amverifyrun' have been replaced with the more flexible 'amcheckdump'. 'amcryptsimple' and 'amgpgcrypt', encryption plugins based on GPG, have been added. 'amserverconfig' and 'amaddclient', initial Amanda configuration tools, have been added. There are speedups in 'amrecover find' and starting amrecover. The Device API has a pluggable interface to storage devices supporting tapes, vtapes, RAIT, and Amazon S3. New Perl modules link directly to Amanda to support writing Amanda applications in Perl.
Release Notes: The device API provides a pluggable interface to storage devices, supporting tapes, vtapes, RAIT, and Amazon S3. New Perl modules link directly to Amanda to support the writing of Amanda applications in Perl. A new 'local' security driver supports backups of the Amanda server without any network connection or other configuration.
Release Notes: Lots of bugs were fixed. The many IPv6 bugs include missing sockaddr_storage, missing AI_V4MAPPED and AI_ALL, a problem with comparing IPv4 and IPv6 v4mapped addresses. The bsd/bsdudp server uses two sockets; one for IPv4 and one for IPv6. Compilation failures on some platforms were fixed.
Release Notes: Many bugs were fixed. The code was cleaned up. KRB5 auth is now working. The program now works with IPv6 addresses. The Amanda configuration file (amanda.conf) was changed. Debugging is enabled in the configuration file. The tapetype is set to "readblocksize" if maxtapeblocksize is set too large for your hardware.
