I have just released version 1.7.4 of Obnam, my backup program. Actually, the release date was yesterday, but I had trouble building the binaries.

Version 1.7.4, released 2014-03-31

  • The manual is now dual-licensed under GNU GPL v3 or later, and Creative Commons CC-BY-SA 4.0.

  • The 1.7.3 release never went out. Let's pretend it wasn't even tagged in git, and everyone will be happy.

Bug fixes:

  • Obnam FUSE got another bug fix from Valery Yundin, to fix a bug I introduced in 1.7. Reading big files via obnam mount should now work better.

  • Fix count of backed up files. It used to always count directories. Reported by Alberto Fuentes as Debian bug 742384.

  • obnam diff latest would fail due to a programming error. Reported by Junyx.
