Hi Robert,

it comes from the server side: unless you call the client side with `--api-version 201`, the server side is called with the old syntax. After all, there is no way to know in advance if the other side will understand the new CLI, it could be rdiff-backup v2.0.5.

KR, Eric

Would someone please explain to me why this command:

   rdiff-backup --no-ssh-compression --null-separator backup --exclude-sockets --exclude-globbing-filelist /dev/fd/63 --exclude-globbing-filelist /dev/fd/62 --exclude-globbing-filelist /root/rback/exclude-3x-auto --preserve-numerical-ids --print-statistics / rb-server::/media/sysbk/omega-3x

causes rdiff-backup 2.1.4rc0 to complain:

   WARNING: this command line interface is deprecated and will disappear, start using the new one as described with '--new --help'.

AFAICT, everything in that command line is in agreement with the current manpage. Both the local machine and the server are running version 2.1.4rc0.
