Release Notes: This release introduces the option lateLinks, which allows setting hard links later (on the server) as a separate step (a speed up by a factor of 2 to 70 depending on the environment) for the direct backup time. A program for rule-based searching in the backup (e.g. defining rules depending on age, size, name, and owner) has been added. There is much better documentation: a detailed description is available as a PDF and on the homepage. There are many other improvements.
Release Notes: storebackup now supports the recreation of hard links when restoring data from a backup. A conversion program must be run for old backups before updating to this version, because the internal data format has been changed.
Release Notes: In this release, senseless list parameters (like *.h) now produce an error message. storeBackupVersions.pl features improved performance and checks for the same inodes before calculating MD5 sums. A bug in storeBackup.pl that resulted in a division by zero when the time for backup was less than 1 second was fixed, and keepMinNumberAfterLastOfDay was added.
