Hi Folks,

Time for another release, although I must admit that most of the heavy lifting was done by edso and mt.  Thanks for your help!

In the last release I replaced the SSH backend which used scp and sftp via pexpect with a backend using the paramiko package.  This worked well in testing, but some folks have had problems with a couple of the untested items (we need more unit tests).  This release adds the --ssh-backend feature to allow you to select the original pexpect backend if you need to go back to the original.  The default is the paramiko backend.  The pexpect backend will be phased out as paramiko matures.

The full changelog is below.  As usual you can download the latest and greatest at https://launchpad.net/duplicity/+milestone/0.6.19.


New in v0.6.19 (2012/05/22)
- lots of work on the man page to clean up requirements, etc.
- use empty listbody for enhanced webdav compatibility
- initial folder creation on backend does not result in a ResponseNotReady anymore
- add ssh_config support (/etc/ssh/ssh_config + ~/.ssh/config) to paramiko sshbackend
- add missing_host_key prompt to new sshbackend similar to ssh procedure
- added --ssh-backend parameter to switch between paramiko,pexpect
- allow answering gio mount questions (albeit naively)
- if the gio backend wants to ask a question during its mount phase, it previously just aborted.
- a couple more warning error codes that Deja Dup is interested in noticing.
- ssh paramiko backend respects --num-retries now
- set retry delay for ssh backends to 10s
- ssh pexpect backend
 + sftp part does not claim 'Invalid SSH password' although it's only 'Permission denied' now
 + sftp errors are now more talkative
- gpg.py
 + commented assert which broke otherwise working verify run
