I'm proud to announce the first bugfix release 0.11.1 of the 0.11 series of
the Simple Backup suite.
Thanks to all who contributed to this release with coding, sending
patches, testing, reporting bugs and translating!
Series 0.11.x finally replaces the old-fashioned Simple Backup 0.10.5
with code that was developed in (Not So) Simple Backup in the meantime.
It adds some very interesting features and is ready for daily
use. Most notable enhancements are:
* fixes many, partly long standing, bugs
* implementation of a status application which presents information of
running backups such as backup size, progress and estimated remaining time
* implementation of a GIO/GVFS backend for access of remote targets (currently
supported is FTP, SFTP, SSH, NFS). The backend to use can be controlled
by a GConf setting (see https:/
* notification window in case of not found backup destination: you can
directly retry to use the specified destination, after mounting an
external disk (good for creation of backups stored on external disks
that might not be plugged in)
This release in particular fixes:
* [Fix] LP #587911: Logarithmic purge does not work
* [Fix] LP #622095: catch error when listing directory contents fails
* [Fix]: revamped packaging: use distutils and pysupport
See the changelog on the download page for more information.
Known issues - There are a few known issues in SBackup 0.11.0:
* when upgrading snapshots in old Simple Backup format (1.4 and older) it is
not recommended to use these as base for successive snapshots. Make a full
* specified log directories are not modified when using former nssbackup
configurations. This might lead to directories named `.../nssbackup`.
* in order to use secure remote targets (SFTP, SSH via GIO) you'll have to
add the remote machine to your trusted machines first
* due to default security settings it is not possible to create backups at
remote destinations which are split into several chunks when running as
superuser (root) using the GIO backend
* No Help available on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy (due to use of Mallard)
* if you want to install nssbackup from source code after you've had
already installed it from PPA, you need to *Purge* the package (i.e.
remove package and configuration files, not only remove) to avoid
confusion of your packaging software about configuration files in
system directories (namely /etc/dbus-
