Hi all,

in this release support for keyless symmetric encryption was added (see changelog on details). Also new are gpg functionality tests before duplicity is started, to prevent unwanted surprises later on.
All changes can be found in the changelog below.

have fun ... ede


new versioning scheme 1.4.2b => 1.4.2, beta b's are replaced by a patch count number e.g. will be assigned to the first bug fixing version and to the second and so on
also the relases will now have a release date


1.4.2 (22.Apr.2009)
- gpg keys are now exported as gpgkey.[id].asc , the suffix reflects the
armored ascii nature, the id helps if the key is switched for some reason
im/export routines are updated accordingly (import is backward compatible
to the old profile/gpgkey files)
- profile argument is treated as path if it contains slashes
(for details see usage)
- non-ftplicity options (all but --preview currently) are now passed
on to duplicity
- removed need for stat in secure_conf, it is ls based now
- added profile folder readable check
- added gpg version & home info output
- awk utility availability is now checked, because it was mandatory already
- tmp space is now checked on writability and space requirement
test fails on less than 25MB or configured $VOLSIZE,
test warns if there is less than two times $VOLSIZE because
that's required for --asynchronous-upload option
- gpg functionality is tested now before executing duplicity
test drive contains encryption, decryption, comparison, cleanup
this is meant to detect non trusted or other gpg errors early
- added possibility of doing symmetric encryption with duplicity
set GPG_KEY="" or simply comment it out
- added hints in config template on the depreciation of
--short-filenames, --time-separator duplicity options
