A short summary of what happened during the last months:

Back in September we launched the Duplicati forum as part of our website. This has been much more successful than we expected. Within 4 months we got more than 7,000 messages and within the last 30 days about 140,000 page views. Due to this, we have now moved the news section on the website to the forum.

In the forum and later on Github there was a very interesting discussion about "backup retention". Backup retention is a feature that can delete old backups in an intelligent way, so that you e.g. have daily backups for a week, then weekly backups for a month and monthly backups for a year.

This feature has now been implemented in Duplicati and we are currently testing it in the latest canary version. We are also happy to say, that this feature was our first "paid development". The issue in github was created in November 2016 and a bug bounty was put on it via BountySource. This bounty has now been claimed by the main developer of this feature. Maybe this is how open source development is supported in the future?

We fixed the issue with Google Docs. Actually we dropped support for Google Docs and added Google Drive instead. :-) Duplicati 2.0 will update itself or you can check for updates manually from its interface. More changes (Google Cloud Storage, OpenStack, HubiC, bug fixes, improvements) are listed at http://www.duplicati.com/news/supportforgoogledrivein20086

Meta data in 2.0.0.81. Another update is rolling out to Duplicati 2.0 users. It contains backup and restore of file dates and access permission. Furthermore, we put in a lot changes to improve robustness and throttle is working again. Have fun!

The preview version of Duplicati 2.0 is available from http://updates.duplicati.com/preview/latest.zip

A new version is available. 

It contains a memory optimization that Kenneth did which trades a tiny bit of performance for a huge piece of (less) memory usage. Kenneth was able to turn off block, filehash, filename and metadata caches completely almost keeping the same speed. If you are running into any issues, you can turn on the old way using —old-lookup-memory-defaults. If we do not get any feedback that this is really required, we'll remove the old code.

Furthermore, there are tiny changes in the UI. "Restore from target" is now visible. It allows you to restore data from any backup which is not yet configured in Duplicati. This is the disaster recovery solution some of you have asked for.

Enjoy!

We just found a service called bountysource. It allows users to place bounties on GitHub issues. When developers have completed the work on such issues, they can claim the bounty. What do you think? Is that a kind of mechanism that can bring Duplicati forward?

Thank you for answering the survey! One of the major learnings was that many of you are not aware of some very interesting features that Duplicati has. That is why we decided to offer those features in the user interface. Update 2.0.0.60 is now coming to you! 

It contains a general options dialog to e.g. allow remote access to Duplicati from other machines and to restrict access to the user interface with a password. You can also set up the "pause after start" delay to grant your computer some time to finish the startup procedure before the first backup job kicks in.

Furthermore, backup jobs now have an option to define how long backups are stored or how many backups are stored. This is a tricky feature. It works automatically but if you care what is going on exactly, please read the announcement at http://www.duplicati.com/news/20060isavailable

2.0.0.60 also contains some fixes. Enjoy!
