Release Notes: This release adds a MediaSet config item IgnoreFreeSpace. For some NFS-based destinations where the destination directory is really a submount on the server, the actual free space cannot be reliably found, so this release will not issue warnings about insufficient free space for subsequent backups when this flag is set.
Release Notes: This release changes the use of df's -B to --block-size= for compatibility with older Debian distros. It adds a new --setauto argument to set, unset, or toggle the state of the automatic backup flag for a given host from the command line, allowing more complex cron schedules for alternating multi-disk setups.
Release Notes: This release will cull double warnings issued after very large full backups. An incorrect warning about excessive time since the last backup has been fixed.
Release Notes: An off-by-an-order-of-magnitude error on the free-space checking which caused unnecessary warnings to be issued has been fixed.
Release Notes: The size of the last incremental and full backups are now tracked, and warnings are included in the email report if there's unlikely to be enough space on the media for the next backup to complete successfully. New configuration options are now written to the configuration file rather than just using assumed defaults. Major readability cleanup of the code has been done.
Release Notes: This release fixes a long-standing bug which caused directories to not be backed up, though the files in them were. There has been a major cleanup of the affected parts of the code. Contact addresses and URLs have been updated. Some long-obsolete parts of the documentation have been improved to align with recent distributions.
Release Notes: This release fixes a couple of minor bugs in the ejection code, and improves the error logging included in the email report after a failed backup. All packages now include GPG signatures. RPM now requires the Perl module Config::IniFiles.
Release Notes: This version now overrides Perl 5.8's new default UTF-8 encoding of IO streams in some conditions, and forces ":raw" IO streams where relevant so that files including non-ASCII characters are properly backed up.
Release Notes: This release will stat broken links and apply the same CTime comparison as for regular files. This way links aren't backed up every time unnecessarily. The RPM has been updated to have sane requirements on Red Hat 8, and to no longer overwrite existing config files on upgrade/install.
Release Notes: (S)RPMs now available. A new spec file and a sample cron.d file were added. Some documentation updates were made, relating to the new RPM packaging.
