Hello everybody,

without further comments, let's party!

KR, Eric

Last bug-fix before code clean-up

Repository: rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup
<https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup> · Tag: v2.0.5
<https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/tree/v2.0.5> · Commit:
· Released by: rdiff-backup-admin <https://github.com/rdiff-backup-admin>

    Main changes

In this version we've fixed 10 issues reported by users (thanks!), some
of them quite long standing. We've also improved our development and
testing infrastructure, adding test coverage and profiling instructions.
Detailed release notes are at the top of the changelog


The installation, described in details in the read me
</rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/blob/v2.0.5/README.md>, has the quick version:

  * Linux, trust on your distro to provide the latest version of
    rdiff-backup "soon-ish" or:
      o On Fedora/CentOS/RHEL, you may use Frank's COPR repo

      o On Ubuntu, you may use Otto's PPA repo

  * Windows, download the asset |rdiff-backup-2.0.5.win32exe.zip| from
    the tagged release
    and unpack it somewhere in your |PATH|.
  * Any supported Platform, and a few unsupported like BSD and MacOSX,
    use |pip install rdiff-backup| (or download and install the proper
    asset from the tagged release


It's probably the last bug-fix release of this 2.0 branch because we now
need to focus on improving/modernizing/simplifying the code, and this
will take a little while. This doesn't mean that there aren't known bugs
but they require the code to be cleaner before they can be properly
addressed. This will surely require some months so be patient or help us
to be faster.

This is also most probably the last version of rdiff-backup officially
supporting Python 3.5, which is due end-of-life in September 2020, and
also because we want to support the upcoming Python 3.9, due one month
later, and can't support more than 4 versions of Python in parallel.
In other words, if you're still using Python 3.5, it's time to think
about upgrading; your security will thank you anyway.


If you encounter issues, contact us on the rdiff-backup-users mailing
list <https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/rdiff-backup-users>
and/or report an issue

We could also use some help, so don't hesitate to raise your hand on the
mailing list if you'd like to help your favourite backup tool!
