Barman (backup and recovery manager) for PostgreSQL is an administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers. It allows remote backups of multiple servers in business-critical environments and helps DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman's most-wanted features include backup catalogs, retention policies, remote recovery, archiving, and compression of WAL files and backups.

Release Notes: This minor release adds compatibility with PostgreSQL 9.3. It also introduces support for the "--target-name" recovery option, which allows it to restore to a named point previously specified with pg_create_restore_point (only for PostgreSQL 9.1 and above users). Experimental compatibility with Python 3 has been added. Minor bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: This minor version adds the "bandwidth_limit" global/server option which allows limiting the I/O bandwidth (in KBPS) for backup and recovery operations. More control is given by the "tablespace_bandwidth_limit" global/server option, which allows limiting the I/O bandwidth (in KBPS) for backup and recovery operations on a per-tablespace basis. Minor bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: This is a major release that introduces automated support for retention policies based on the redundancy of periodical backups or recovery window. Retention policies are integrated by a safety mechanism that allows administrators to specify a minimum number of periodical backups that must exist at any time for a server. This version fixes minor bugs and adds minor features.
Release Notes: This version adds the "configuration_files_directory" option that allows administrators to include multiple server configuration files from a directory (e.g. /etc/barman.d). The following aliases for special backup identifiers (ID) are now supported: latest, last, oldest, and first. With 'barman list-backup all', you can now list backups for all the configured servers. This release honors the "application_name" option for connection information on PostgreSQL >= 9.0. It fixes an important bug: missing WAL files are now ignored during deletion (#18).
Release Notes: This release fixes a minor bug in the recover command introduced in version 1.1.0.
