restic 0.6.1 released29 May 2017
We’ve just released restic 0.6.1!
Just a few days after the release of restic 0.6.0 we’ve released 0.6.1 as a bugfix release to address two annoying bugs. The changes are listed below.
Important Changes in 0.6.1
We’ve fixed a bug where
rebuild-indexwould corrupt the index when used with the s3 backend together with the
defaultlayout. This is not the default setting.
Backends based on HTTP now allow several idle connections in parallel. This is especially important for the REST backend, which (when used with a local server) may create a lot connections and exhaust available ports quickly. https://github.com/restic/restic/issues/985 https://github.com/restic/restic/pull/986
Regular status report: We’ve removed the status report that was printed every 10 seconds when restic is run non-interactively. You can still force reporting the current status by sending a
USR1signal to the process. https://github.com/restic/restic/pull/974
build.gonow strips the temporary directory used for compilation from the binary. This is the first step in enabling reproducible builds. https://github.com/restic/restic/pull/981
