Fedora Update Notification

Name        : duplicity
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 0.6.17
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://www.nongnu.org/duplicity/
Summary     : Encrypted bandwidth-efficient backup using rsync algorithm
Description :
Duplicity incrementally backs up files and directory by encrypting
tar-format volumes with GnuPG and uploading them to a remote (or
local) file server. In theory many protocols for connecting to a
file server could be supported; so far ssh/scp, local file access,
rsync, ftp, HSI, WebDAV and Amazon S3 have been written.

Because duplicity uses librsync, the incremental archives are space
efficient and only record the parts of files that have changed since
the last backup. Currently duplicity supports deleted files, full
unix permissions, directories, symbolic links, fifos, device files,
but not hard links.

Update Information:

New in v0.6.17 (2011/11/25)


 - Added --rsync-options flag to allow user to pass options to rsync at will
 - Added --s3-use-multiprocessing to select the new s3 multiprocessing backend.  Default is to use the single processing backend.  A helper, filechunkio.py, requires Python 2.6+, so this option is not usable in earlier versions.

Bugs closed in this release:

 - Misleading error message: "Invalid SSH password"
 - File ... was corrupted during upload.
 - UnsupportedBackendScheme: scheme not supported in url: s3+http
 - Resuming a backup with a different password should throw an error
 - Bugfix for S3 multipart upload on 0.6.16
 - duplicity 0.6.16 lists all backup sets as incomplete
 - Duplicity fails to add incremental backups to chain...

New in v0.6.16 (2011/10/16)


 - Usability enhancement: sign passphrase prompt has no second verification prompt anymore, symmetric passphrases are still verified
 - Fixed Unicode errors when translations are used.
 - Replaced old tarfile.py with Python 2.7 version, modded to support Python 2.4 syntax.

Bugs closed in this release:

 - Fixed fields are not fixed, leading to buffer overflows...
 - Amazon S3 backend multipart upload support
 - uid and guid setting adversely affects integrity
 - Local backend should always try renaming instead of copying
 - Uploads to Rackspace fail silently
 - duplicity crash: "AssertionError: rb None None"
 - Duplicity URL Parser is not parsing IPv6 properly
 - Duplicity thinks partial encrypted backups are not encrypted
 - Duplicity does not handle UIDs higher than 60001

New in v0.6.15 (2011/08/19)


 - Ignore 404 errors when deleting a file on Ubuntu One.
 - Ignore ENOENT (file missing) errors where it is safe.
 - Set minimum Python version to 2.4 in README.
 - introduce --numeric-owner parameter patch courtesy of Lukas Anzinger <l.anzinger AT gmail.com>
 - duplicity:restore_check_hash "Invalid data - *** hash mismatch" lists the offending filename
 - fixes to unit tests to support SIGN_PASSPHRASE

Bugs closed in this release:

 - duplicity does not have numeric uid/gid support
 - AssertionError: assert len(chain_list) == 2
 - Transport endpoint is not connected
 - Bad passphrase can leave bogus sigtar in archive
 - Shouldn't try to delete files it knows don't exist
 - Error doing backup of the .evolution folder
 - sftp errors after rev 740 change
 - 0.6.14 Fails to install on 8.04 LTS (Hardy)
