# Restic 0.13.0 Released

We’re proud to announce that restic 0.13.0 has been released today!

This release contains several bug fixes and improvements worth mentioning:

• It is now possible to add negative patterns to cancel previous exclusions (e.g. --exclude '/home/user/*' --exclude '!/home/user/.config').
• The backup command now has a --dry-run switch which (together with --verbose) prints the files that would be included in a backup.
• We have added checksums for various backends so data uploaded to a backend can be checked there.
• The restore command was optimized and is now twice as fast, the copy command was improved as well.

For downloading the new release and to see a more detailed list of important changes, please head over to GitHub. If you already have restic (0.9.4 or later), you can use the self-update command to automatically download and verify the new release.

As always, thanks for reporting any issues you encounter! Or just write a post in the forum.
