  - Made gpg version check more robust than just major version

  - 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:
* Add detail about import exceptions in

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 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
  - 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
