I have just released version 1.14 of Obnam, my backup program. See the website at http://obnam.org for details on what the program does. The new version is available from git (see http://git.liw.fi) and as Debian packages from http://code.liw.fi/debian, and uploaded to Debian, and soon in unstable.
The NEWS file extract below gives the highlights of what's new in this version.
Version 1.14, released 2015-08-14
- Since 1.9, Obnam has had trouble with sftp URLs for backup roots, particularly for URLs specifying the server's root directory. Dennis Jacobfeuerborn found the reason: the backup plugin was treating URLs as filenames. This should now be fixed.
