Release Notes: Optional table optimization after dumping was added. Archive::ZIP is not required when running on Win32.
Release Notes: This release adds Win32 support.
Release Notes: The version number was bumped, and unused variables were removed.
Release Notes: The "defaults-extra-file" config option was added, which can be used instead of specifying the username/password/host directly in the config file. The "dbhost" config paramater is now also used for the backup filename. If you use the new "defaults-extra-file" for remote backups, this key is still needed to set the filename. Code formatting and minor fixes were done.
Release Notes: Using a MySQL configuration file ~/.my.cnf is now the recommended way to hide passwords from the process table. A new configuration file parameter, "exclude databases", was introduced to specify a comma separared list of database that are not to be backed up. The "compression tool" configuration file parameter was fixed to allow white space.
