Duplicity 0.7.15 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2017-11-13

New in v0.7.15 (2017/11/13)
---------------------------
* Fixed bug introduced in new megabackend.py where process_commandline()
  takes a string not a list. Now it takes both.
* Updated web page for new megabackend requirements.
* Patched in lp:~mterry/duplicity/more-decode-issues
  - Here's some fixes for another couple UnicodeDecodeErrors.
  - The duplicity/dup_time.py fixes when a user passes a utf8 date string (or a string with bogus
    utf8 characters, but they have to really try to do that). This is bug 1334436.
  - The bin/duplicity change from str(e) to util.uexc(e) fixes bug 1324188.
  - The rest of the changes (util.exception_traceback and bin/duplicity changes to use it) are to
    make the printing of exceptions prettier. Without this, if you see a French exception, you see
    "accept\xe9es" instead of "acceptées".
  - You can test all of these changes in one simple line:
    $ LANGUAGE=fr duplicity remove-older-than $'accept\xffées'
* Fix backend.py to allow string, list, and tuple types to support megabackend.py.
* Fixed bug #1715650 with patch from Mattheww S
  - Fix to make duplicity attempt a get first, then create, a container
    in order to support container ACLs.
* Fixed bug #1714663 "Volume signed by XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, not XXXXXXXX"
  - Normalized comparison length to min length of compared keys before comparison
  - Avoids comparing mix of short, long, or fingerprint size keys.
* Merged in lp:~mterry/duplicity/rename-dep
  - Make rename command a dependency for LP build
* Fixed bug #1654756 with new b2backend.py module from Vincent Rouille
  - Faster (big files are uploaded in chunks)
  - Added upload progress reporting support
* Fixed bug #1448094 with patch from Tomáš Zvala
  - Don't log incremental deletes for chains that have no incrementals
* Fixed bug #1724144 "--gpg-options unused with some commands"
  - Add --gpg-options to get version run command
* Fixed bug #1720159 - Cannot allocate memory with large manifest file since 0.7.03
  - filelist is not read if --file-changed option in collection-status not present
  - This will keep memory usage lower in non collection-status operations
* Fixed bug #1723890 with patch from Killian Lackhove
  - Fixes error handling in pydrivebackend.py
* Fixed bug #1730902 GPG Error Handling
  - use util.ufn() not str() to handle encoding

Duplicity 0.7.14 Released

Written for Duplicity by Kenneth Loafman on 2017-08-31

New in v0.7.14 (2017/08/31)
---------------------------
* Merged in lp:~dawgfoto/duplicity/skip_sync_collection_status
  - collection-status should not sync metadata
  - up-to-date local metadata is not needed as collection-status is
    generated from remote file list
  - syncing metadata might require to download several GBs
* Fixed slowness in 'collection-status' by basing the status on the
  remote system only. The local cache is treated as empty.
* Fixed encrypted remote manifest handling to merely put out a non-fatal
  error message and continue if the private key is not available.
* Patched in lp:~mterry/duplicity/giobackend-display-name
  - giobackend: handle a wider variety of gio backends by making less assumptions;
    in particular, this fixes the google-drive: backend
* Fixed bug #1709047 with suggestion from Gary Hasson
  - fixed so default was to use original filename
* Fixed PEP8 errors in bin/duplicity
* Merged in lp:~mterry/duplicity/gio_child_for_display_name_0.7
  - gio: be slightly more correct and get child GFiles based on display name
* Fixed bug #1711905 with suggestion from Schneider
  - log.Warn was invoked with log.warn in webdavbackend.py
* Merged in lp:~mterry/duplicity/gpg-tag-versions
  - Support gpg versions numbers that have tags on them.
  - This can happen if you build gpg from git trunk (e.g. 2.1.15-beta20). Or if you run
    against the freedesktop flatpak runtime (e.g. 2.1.14-unknown).
* Fixed bug #1394386 with new module megabackend.py from Tomas Vondra
  - uses megatools from https://megatools.megous.com/ instead of mega.py library
    which has been deprecated
  - fixed copyright and PEP8 issues
  - replaced subprocess.call() with self.subprocess_popen() to standardize
* Fixed bug #1713640 with patch from Aleksandar Ivanisevic
  - replace 2.7 syntax with 2.6 equivalent
* Fixed bug #1538333 Assertion error in manifest.py: assert filecount == ...
  - Made sure to never pass .part files as true manifest files
  - Changed assert to log.Error to warn about truncated/corrupt filelist
  - Added unit test to make sure detection works
  - Note: while this condition is serious, it will not affect the basic backup and restore
    functions. Interactive options like --list-files-changed and --file-changed will not
    work correctly for this backup set, so it is advised to run a full backup as soon as
    possible after this error occurs.
* Fixed bug #1638033 Remove leading slash on --file-to-restore
  - code already used rstrip('/') so change to just strip('/')
