I've released version 0.25 of Obnam, my backup application.
- Log files are now created with permissions that allow only the owner to read or write them. This fixes a privacy leak.
nagios-last-backup-agesubcommand is useful for setting up Nagios (or similar systems) to check that backups get run properly. Thanks to Peter Palfrader for the patch.
- Some clarification on how the forget policy works, prompted by questions from Peter Palfrader.
- New settings
ssh-known-hosts(for choosing which file to check for known host keys),
strict-ssh-host-keys(for disallowing unknown host keys), and
ssh-key(for choosing which key file to use for SSH connections) allow better and safer use of ssh.
- Checkpoints will now happen even in the middle of files (but between chunks).
--pretendoption now works for backups as well.
obnam lsnow shows the correct timestamps for generations. Thanks, Anders Wirzenius.
