We are pleased to announce the release of Bacula version 11.0.3 to both the Bacula website (www.bacula.org) and to SourceForge. Thank you for using Bacula.

This is a major new release with many new features and a number of
changes. Please take care to test this code carefully before putting it into
production. Although the new features have been tested, they have not run in a
production environment.

Compatibility:

As always, both the Director and Storage daemon(s) must be upgraded at
the same time. Any File daemon running on the same machine as a Director
or Storage daemon must be of the same version.

Older File Daemons should be compatible with the 11.0 Director and Storage
daemons. There should be no need to upgrade older File Daemons.

New Catalog format in version 11.0 and greater

This release of Bacula uses a new catalog format. We provide a set of scripts
that permit to convert a 9.x and earlier versions to the new 11.0.0 format
(1023). Normally, it is automatic, though this is a big change that takes
longer than usual. The upgrade process will require more or less twice the
size of the actual database.

This database upgrade should significantly increase performance when inserting
large number of Jobs with lots of Files into the database catalog.

If you start from scratch, you don’t need to run the update_bacula_tables
script because the create_bacula_tables script automatically creates the new
table format. However, if you are using a version of Bacula older than 5.0.0
(e.g. 3.0.3) then you need to run the update_bacula_tables script that will be
found in the bacula/src/cats directory after you run the ./configure command.
As mentioned above, before running this script, please backup your catalog
database, and when you do running it, be sure shutdown Bacula and be aware that
running the script can take some time depending on your database size.

S3 Cloud Driver
To build the S3 Storage Cloud Driver, it is required to download and
install the libs3 available on https://www.bacula.org/downloads/libs3-20200523.tar.gz
