Brackup 1.02 [May. 22nd, 2007|07:01 pm]

New Brackup...


1.02 (may 22, 2007)

  - support for merging little files together into big chunks
    on the backup target.  aka "tail packing".  requires no changes
    to target drivers.  this should speed backups, as less network
    round-trips.  will also be cheaper, once Amazon starts charging
    per number of HTTP requests in June.

  - improved docs

I'm waiting for my bitcard login to file a bug proper, but I did notice in playing with 1.01 that if a file which existed when Brackup was "discovering files" subsequently goes away while Brackup is working it's magic (like a vim .swp file) Brackup tosses an error and bails:

idoru:[~]$ brackup --from=homedir --to=amazon
Discovering files in /Users/grahams/...
[...] lots of "file ending in whitespace" warnings omitted [...]
Number of files: 81383

Ah, that should be an easy fix. Adding to my TODO now.
