The trek from Andromeda is getting shorter every time. Hopefully the galaxies won’t collide.

I’ve just released version 0.20 of Obnam (although the armel binary is still building). The important bits:


  • Non-ASCII filenames over SFTP root now work. (Thanks, Tapani Tarvainen, for the reproducible bug report.)
  • The count of files while making a backup now counts all files found, not just those backed up. The old behavior was confusing people.


  • The output of obnam ls now formats the columns a little prettier, so that wide values do not cause misalignment.
  • The error message when trying to use an encrypted repository without encryption is now better (and suggests missing encryption being the reason). Thanks, chrysn.
  • Obnam now supports backing up of Unix sockets.
