Duplicity 0.7.13 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2017-06-12

New in v0.7.13 (2017/06/12)
---------------------------
* Fixed bug #1680682 with patch supplied from Dave Allan
  - Only specify --pinentry-mode=loopback when --use-agent is not specified
* Fixed man page that had 'cancel' instead of 'loopback' for pinentry mode
* Fixed bug #1684312 with suggestion from Wade Rossman
  - Use shutil.copyfile instead of os.system('cp ...')
  - Should reduce overhead of os.system() memory usage.
* Fixed bug #1320832 with suggestion from Oskar Wycislak
  - Use chunks instead of reading it all in swiftbackend
* Fixed bug #1689632 with patch from Howard Kaye
  - On MacOS, the tempfile.TemporaryFile call erroneously raises an
    IOError exception saying that too many files are open. This causes
    restores to fail randomly, after thousands of files have been restored.
* Fixed bug #1320641 and others regarding lockfile
  - swap from lockfile to fasteners module
  - use an fcntl() style lock for process lock of duplicity cache
  - lockfile will now clear if duplicity is killed or crashes
* May have finally fixed bug #1556553, "Too many open files...".
  - Applied patch from Howard Kaye, question #631423. The fix is to dup
    the file descriptor, and then close the file in the deallocator
    routine in the glue code. Duping the file lets the C code and the Python
    code each close the file when they are done with it.
  - Invalidated and removed the fix put in for bug #1320832.
  - Caveat: long incremental chains will still eat up a large number of file
    descriptors. It's a very risky practice, so I'm not inclined to fix it.
* Revisited bug #670891 with patch from Edgar Soldin
  - Forced librsync.PatchedFile() to extract file object from TemporaryFile()
    object when on Windows or Cygwin systems. This allows us to avoid the
    problem of tmpfile() use which creates temp files in the wrong place.
  - See discussion at https://bugs.launchpad.net/duplicity/+bug/670891
* Fix bug #1672540 with patch from Benoit Nadeau
  - Rename would fail to move par files when moving across filesystems.
  - Patch uses shutil.move() to do the rename instead.
* Fixed bug #1265765 with patches from Matthias Larisch and Edgar Soldin
  - SSH Paramiko backend now uses BufferedFile implementation to enable
    collecting the entire list of files on the backend.
* Copy.com is gone so remove copycombackend.py.
* Merged in lp:~xlucas/duplicity/swift-multibackend-bug
  - Fix a bug when swift backend is used in a multibackend configuration.
* Merged in lp:~duplicity-team/duplicity/po-updates

Duplicity 0.7.12 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2017-03-21

New in v0.7.12 (2017/03/21)
---------------------------
* Fixed bug #1623342 with patch supplied by Daniel Jakots
  - Failing test on OpenBSD because tar/gtar not found
* Fixed bug #1654220 with patch supplied by Kenneth Newwood
  - Duplicity fails on MacOS because GPG version parsing fails
* Fixed bug #1655268 "--gpg-binary option not working"
  - If gpg binary is specified rebuild gpg profile using new binary location
* Fixed bug #1658283 "Duplicity 0.7.11 broken with GnuPG 2.0"
  - Made gpg version check more robust than just major version
  - Now use --pinentry-mode=loopback on gpg 2.1 and greater
  - Removed check for non-Linux systems, a false problem
* Merged in lp:~matthew-t-bentley/duplicity/duplicity
  - Sets a user agent. Backblaze asked for this in case there are errors that originate
    from the Duplicity B2 backend
  - Only retrieves a new upload URL when the current one expires, to bring it in line
    with their best practices for integrations: https://www.backblaze.com/b2/docs/integration_checklist.html
* Add detail about import exceptions in onedrivebackend.py
* Fixed bug #1657916 with patch supplied by Daniel Harvey
  - B2 provider cannot handle two backups in the same bucket
* Fixed bug #1603704 with patch supplied by Maciej BliziƄski
  - Crash with UnicodeEncodeError
* Some fixes to gpg.py to handle gpg1 & gpg2 & gpg2.1 commandline issues
  - --gpg-agent is optional on gpg1, but on gpg2 it is used automatically
  - --pinentry-mode is not a valid opt until gpg2.1, so condition on that
* Fixed bug #1367675 - IMAP Backend does not work with Yahoo server
  - added the split() as needed in 'nums=list[0].strip().split(" ")'
  - the other fixes mentioned in the bug report comments were already done
* Fixed bug #1671852 - Code regression caused by revision 1108
  - change util.uexc() back to bare uexc()
* Fixed bug #1668750 - Don't mask backend errors
  - added exception prints to module import errors

Duplicity 0.7.11 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2016-12-31

New in v0.7.11 (2016/12/31)
---------------------------
* Fixed bugs #815510 and #1615480
  - Changed default --volsize to 200MB
* Merged in lp:~mstoll-de/duplicity/duplicity
  - Backblaze announced a new domain for the b2 api
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/bug_1620085_exclude-if-present-locked-folder
  - Fixes Bug #1620085: --exclude-if-present gives OSError looking for tag in locked folders
* Fixed bug #1623342 with patch from Daniel Jakots
  - failing test on OpenBSD because tar/gtar not found
* Merged in lp:~mwilck/duplicity/duplicity
  - GPG: enable truly non-interactive operation with gpg2
  - This patch fixes the IMO unexpected behavior that, when using GnuPG2, a pass phrase dialog always pops up for
    saving backups. This is particularly annoying when trying to do unattended / fully automatic backups.
* Fixed bug #1621194 with code from Tornhoof
  - Do backup to google drive working without a service account
* Fixed bug #1642098 - does not create PAR2 archives when '--par2-options' is used
  - Missing space between par2-options plus default options
* Fix bug using 40-char sign keys, from Richard McGraw on mail list
  - Remove truncation of argument and adjust comments
* Merged in lp:~dernils/duplicity/robust-dropbox-backend
  - Added new command line option --backend-retry-delay
    that allows to determine the time that duplicity sleeps
    before retrying after an error has occured.
  - Added some robustness to dpbxbackend.py that ensures re-authentication
    happens in case that a socket is changed (e.g. due to a forced reconnect
    of a dynamic internet connection).
* Merged in lp:~ed.so/duplicity/manpage.fixes
  - Fix html output via rman on the website
* Merged in lp:~horgh/duplicity/copy-symlink-targets-721599
  - Add --copy-links to copy symlink contents, not just the link itself.
* Merged in lp:~aaron-whitehouse/duplicity/Bug_1624725_files_within_folder_slash
  - Fixed Bug #1624725, so that an include glob ending in "/" now includes folder contents (for globs with
    and without special characters). This preserves the behaviour that an expression ending in "/" only
    matches a folder, but now the contents of any matching folder is included.
* Fix problem with gpg2 in yakety and zesty
* Fix Bug #1642813 with patch from Ravi
  - If stat() returns None, don't attempt to set perms.
* Merged in lp:~breunigs/duplicity/amazondrive3
  - As reported on the mailinglist, if a space is entered while duplicity asks for the URL, it fails.
    Since all important spaces are URL encoded anyway, this should be fine even if there are spaces in
    the URL at all. I also patched it in the onedrive backend, because it must have similar issues.
* Prep for 0.7.11
