Fedora 11 Update: duplicity-0.6.05-1.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-10074
2009-09-29 13:46:18
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : duplicity
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.6.05
Release     : 1.fc11
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 v0.6.05 (2009/08/28)  ---------------------------  Merged in
~l2g/duplicity/test-compat from Larry Gilbert which made the testing compatible
across more systems.  Also fixed the remaining collectionstest bug which was
trying to test with no cache present.    Bugs fixed this release:  407968  GIO
backend can't restore  408059  Failure due to _logger.log failure for content
with special characters: TypeError decoding Unicode not supported  409593  deja-
dup (or duplicity) deletes all signatures  412667  "duplicity remove-older-than"
asks for passphrase even though not required  418170  [PATCH] file names longer
then 512 symbols are not supported      New in v0.6.04 (2009/08/01)
---------------------------  One major and one minor change.  The "No such file
or directory" error is bad enough that this should be released quickly.  For
those of you using encryption, this is not a problem, but for those of you that
do not use encryption (--no-encryption), then this will manifest itself if the
local cache gets out of sync with the remote store.    Bugs fixed this release:
405734  duplicity fails to restore files that contain a newline character
403790  Backup error: No such file or directory      New in v0.6.03 (2009/07/29)
---------------------------  Lots of small changes and some bug fixes.  *
Restart error handling has been smoothed out a great deal and it "does what is
right" in order to keep going.  * Backends are now optional, if they fail an
Info message is put out to notify of the failure and why.  * There was more work
on translations and internationalization.  Thanks to everyone!    Bugs fixed
this release:  377528  --file-to-restore doesn't work with trailing slash
394757  Backend imports should be made optional  398230  Deja-dup backup fails
with message: "Unable to locate last file"  401303  0.6.2 manpage inconsistent
wrt. archive-dir/name  405646  Small i18n error  405975
duplicity.gpg.gpg_failed() breaks and spews on GnuPG error  402794  duplicity
public-key-only incompatible with gnupg 2.0.11      New in v0.6.02 (2009/07/07)
---------------------------  Duplicity will now remove any spurious files left
in the cache from a previous run.  This will keep the metadata cache in sync
with the remote storage metadata.    Bugs fixed this release:  394629  Hang on
first collection-status  379386  Fix 'list-current-files' with missing archive
dir  395826  "No such file or directory" when backing up second time  394627
User-friendly archive dir print  388699  Manifest mismatch error      New in
v0.6.01 (2009/07/01)  ---------------------------  Fixed issues in
Checkpoint/Restart:  * The --name backupname" option was added to allow the user
to separate one archive from another.  If not specified, the default is an MD5
hash of the target URL, which should suffice for most uses.    * The archive_dir
(cache) is now stored in a standard location, defaulting to ~/.cache/duplicity.
See http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/latest/    * The interaction
between the --archive-dir option and the --name option allows for four possible
results for the location of the archive dir.      - neither specified (default)
~/.cache/duplicity/hash-of-url      - --archive-dir=~/arch, no --name
~/arch/hash-of-url      - no --archive-dir, --name=foo
~/.cache/duplicity/foo      - --archive-dir=~/arch, --name=foo        ~/arch/foo
* duplicity will now copy needed metadata from the remote store to the local
cache as needed.  This means that the first use after upgraded from 0.5.x will
have the metadata copied to the local archive dir in order to sync both.    *
cleanup will now work correctly with the archive dir and separates the local
from the remote files.    Bugs fixed this release:  * 388034     Unable to
backup  * 378940     python2-6 issue / UTF-8 charset / Ubuntu 9.04  * 379386
Fix list-current-files w/ missing archive dir  * 387102     Asynchronous upload
not working properly  * 387218     Make scp/ssh into sftp-only backend  * 388992
List of Orphaned Files Growing  * 392905     NoneType object has no attribute
'startswith'  * 393372     Error creating directory  * 383412     Add InfoCodes
for upload events  * 383419     Add gio backend      New in v0.6.00 (2009/06/08)
---------------------------  Checkpoint/Restart capability added.  Checkpoint is
done at every volume written and Restart is done at start of the next volume in
the set.  Changes to normal operations include a permanent duplicity archive-dir
at ~/.duplicity to save state.    To accomplish this, the signature and archive
files  in the archive-dir now have three states:  1) temporary until the first
volume has been written,  2) partial until the final volume has been written and
sent to remote storage,  3) permanent with the same name as always.
Assumptions are made that if a restart is needed, then all arguments are the
same as before and that no files have been removed from the file system between
runs.    From now on, the --archive-dir option can be used to change the
location of the archive dir, but you are responsible for moving the files if you
change it.    Other fixes:  Unicode filenames in log messages are now OK.
Fixed problem where Cygwin was returning -1 for the hard max open file limit.
