Duplicity 0.7.04 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2015-08-02

New in v0.7.04 (2015/08/02)
---------------------------
* Merged in lp:~noizyland/duplicity/fix-progress
  - Fixes bug 1264744. selection.filelist_globbing_get_sfs leaves the
    filelist file object's position at the end of the file. When the
    --progress option is used the filelists need to be read twice. On
    the second read nothing is read from the file because file has
    already been read and the position is EOF. This patch calls seek(0)
    on the filelist to reset the position to BOF so that subsequent
    read() calls will return data.
* Added pylint ignore error in webdavbackend.py.
* Merged in lp:~bmerry/duplicity/pydrive-regular
  - This implements the proposal made by somebody else
    (http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/duplicity-talk/2015-02/msg00037.html)
    to allow the pydrive backend to work with a normal drive account instead
    of a service account. It seems to be working for me: I was able to migrate
    seamlessly from the gdocs backend. It's set up so that a service account
    can still be used, depending on which environment variable is set.
    The man page is updated to describe how to use the new functionality.
* Merged in lp:~ed.so/duplicity/gdocs.pydrive
  - make pydrive new gdocs default backend
  - keep gdata backend as gdata+gdocs://
* Merged in lp:~raymii/duplicity/fix-swiftbackend-max-10000-files-in-list
  - Swiftclient by default returns at max 10000 files. By adding
    full_listing=True we make sure all objects are returned.

    and http://docs.openstack.org/developer/python-swiftclient/swiftclient.html#swiftclient.client.get_container
* Fix a couple of PEP8 glitches.
* Fixed bug 791794 - description of --gpg-options is misleading, Simply
  needed to add the '--' before the options as in "--opt1 --opt2=parm".
* Fixed bug 1465335 - pydrive still use files in trash can - with patch
  from Kuang-che Wu to ignore trashed files.
* Fixed bug 1452263 - par2 option not working on small processors - with patch
  from Kuang-che Wu to ignore default 30 second timeout.
* Fixed bug 1466160 - pydrive backend is slow to remove old backup set - with
  patch from Kuang-che Wu to implement _delete_list().
* Fixed bug 1466582 - reduce unnecessary syscall with --exclude-if-present - with
  patch from Kuang-che Wu to make sure resulting path is a directory.
* Merged in lp:~ed.so/duplicity/gpg.binary
  - new parameter --gpg-binary allows user to point to a different gpg binary,
    not necessarily in path
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/fix_POTFILES.in_and_run-tests
  - Fixed two filename references in po/POTFILES.in, a mistake which crept in in
    rev 1093 and caused testing/run-tests to fail with "IndexError: list index
    out of range".
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/reactivate_progress_test
  - Re-enable the test of the --progress option (test_exclude_filelist_progress_option),
    which was marked as an expected failure. The issue causing this test to fail was
    fixed in revision 1095 and the test now passes.
* Fixed bug 1471348 Multi back-end doesn't work with hubiC
  - added init of appropriate superclass in both cases.
* Fixed bug 1471348 Multi back-end doesn't work with hubiC (again)
  - hubiC should reach up to duplicity.backend.__init__
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/bug_884371
  - Fixed Bug #884371 - Stopped an exclude glob trumping an earlier scan glob, but also
    ensured that an exclude glob is not trumped by a later include. This fix is important,
    as without it files that are specified to be included are not being backed up as expected.
  - Fixed Bug #932482 - a trailing slash at the end of globs no longer prevents them working
    as expected.
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/reenable_tests
  - Re-enable unit.test_selection tests that had been temporarily commented out.
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/trailing_slash_match_dirs
  - Made globs with trailing slashes only match directories, not files, fixing Bug #1479545.
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/improve_tox_and_python2-6_testing
  - Testing improvements, particularly in relation to testing against Python version 2.6:
    * tox.ini fixed so that it is possible to run individual tests against both Python 2.6 and 2.7;
    * updated test_code.py to use unittest2 for Python versions < 2.7 (instead of failing);
    * ./run-tests now correctly runs all tests against both Python 2.6 and 2.7; and
    * improved testing directions in README-REPO.
* Merged in lp:~dag-stenstad/duplicity/swift_authversion_3_support
  - Added support for Openstack Identity v3 in the Swift backend.
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/fix_2to3_issues
  - Fixed 2to3 issues. Updated README-REPO with more test information. Updated pylint and
    test_diff2 descriptions to make it clear these require packages to be installed on the
    sytem to pass. All tests pass on Python 2.6 and Python 2.7 as at this revision.
