[Duplicity-announce] Duplicity 0.6.18 Released

Happy Leap Year Day!

I've been very busy on the startup but you guys have been busy on duplicity.  I finally took some time to do some testing, make some corrections, and get this release out the door.  There are a fair number of bug fixes, some of them major.  One major change involves the SSH backend.  Instead of using pexpect to drive the normal SSH utilities, we're now using paramiko as a direct interface.  This should be more reliable in the long run.  Much thanks to az for the new code, and of course to ede and mt for their help all over.

As usual, you can download the latest from: https://launchpad.net/duplicity/+download


New in v0.6.18 (2012/02/29)
- fix extraneous '.py' in botobackend.py include
- tests: add delay between backups to avoid assertion error
- tests: use backup source that is more likely to be larger than 1M compressed
- tests: make other-filesystem check more robust against certain directories being mounts or not
- resuming an incremental results in a 'Restarting backup, but current encryption settings do not match original settings' error because curtime is incorrectly set away from previous incremental value
- added option to not compress the backup, when no encryption is selected
- always delay a little bit when a backend gives us errors
- Don't cache TarInfo files. Tests still pass, so I don't believe we need the members cache (and in the old tarfile.py, we didn't cache either).
- Adding --file-prefix option so different sets of backups can be stored in the same bucket.  See blueprint at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/duplicity/+spec/file-prefix-option
- two changes that help the test suite pass
- raise log level on backend import failure so it will be visible under default conditions
- file /etc/motd may not exist in test environment.  Use __file__ instead to point to a known plaintext source file.
- some code/import changes to make the ssh and boto backends compatible with Python 2.4.
- some changes to make roottest.py compatible with the new dir structure.
