We are pleased to announce the release of Bacula version 9.4.0.

This is a major release (currently a Beta release) comprised of more than 13,000 lines of differences since version 9.2.2. It has updates to Baculum and small number of bug fixes and back ports from Bacula Systems Enterprise since version 9.2.2, but primarily it has two new features …

The main new feature is the addition support for using Amazon S3 (and other *identical* S3 providers), and WORM tape cassettes. Note: Azur, Oracle S3,and Goggle S3 are not compatible with Amazon S3.

Please note that there is a new Bacula Cloud white paper that goes into detail on how to use the new Bacula Cloud S3 driver.

Before putting the S3 driver into production, please test carefully both backups and especially restores.
