  Happy Holidays release v2.2.0

Repository: rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup <https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup> · Tag: v2.2.0 <https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/tree/v2.2.0> · Commit: b768c1d <https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/commit/b768c1defa9f9d1ae7662e40f7609bd0f215c59c> · Released by: github-actions[bot] <https://github.com/apps/github-actions>

    Main changes

After 2 years of development, 48 fixed issues, 17 new features, we're releasing our next major version of rdiff-backup. At time of writing only one known (and obscure) bug is left to be fixed. Most of the time has been spent on modernizing the code with a clearer plug-in based structure, but we've also found the time to implement a few cool features:

  * there is at last a |--help| parameter
  * the CLI (Command Line Interface) has been refurbished and modernized
    (the old one is still present but deprecated)
  * you can store your parameters in a file, one per line, and call
    |rdiff-backup @myfile| to use them
  * verbosity levels and error codes have been standardized for clearer
    interaction with the tool
  * Window wheels are now working, and rdiff-backup is available in 32
    and 64 bits for Windows

And despite all these changes, rdiff-backup 2.2 remains compatible with rdiff-backup 2.0, but you can, and are encouraged to, use the new API using |--api-version 201|, enabling two additional features:

  * the last backup can be regressed even if it isn't failed (I think,
    our oldest enhancement request)
  * locking of repositories has been greatly improved (there wasn't much
    of a locking before)

Detailed release notes are at the top of the changelog </rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/blob/v2.2.0/CHANGELOG.adoc>. As always, consider especially the changes marked with |CHG| as they might impact your workflow.

And, last but not least, our website rdiff-backup.net <https://rdiff-backup.net/> has been revamped and merged with the docs folder, allowing for easier maintenance and up-to-date documentation, in alignment with the code evolution.


The installation, described in details in the read me </rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/blob/v2.2.0/README.adoc>, has the quick version:

  * Linux, trust on your distro to provide the latest version of
    rdiff-backup "soon-ish" (or copr/PPA)
  * Windows, download the asset |rdiff-backup-2.2.0.win32/64exe.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
  * in call cases, you might want to have a look at the migration guide
    </rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/blob/v2.2.0/docs/migration.adoc>, eps
