tresor is an application for performing full backup and fast restores with bytepositioning tape drives. This option is available on some Tandberg and Wangtek streamers and some SCSI-2 tape drives. It features flexible configuration, a database for multiple volumes, fast restores (due to direct seeking), a graphical user interface, tape operations based on dd, afio, and mt, and tape identification using its own header. Language support for German and English is included.

Release Notes: This release uses Xdialog for error messages during startup if DISPLAY is set. It unsets LANG to suppress error messages from Xdialog. There is a new option to test tape drive compatibility. If xhost is available, it tests access to the xserver. A bug in case insensitive searching has been removed.
