Bacula Status Report — 22 June 2018

We recently released prebuilt binaries on bacula.org, and some of you have downloaded them and had varying degrees of luck installing them. Concerning the installation of Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver), I have personally installed, configured and run it, including running with the Aligned plugin, and from the brief testing I did, it works well. However, I did notice a few errors in the installation guide, which I have corrected in version 1.3 of the guide.

Bacula 9.0.7

This is a significant release because it now has the Windows code reintegrated and updated to work with this version. Other than Baculum updates and the new Windows update, there is no significant change to the other code.

If you wish to use the Windows 9.0.7 File daemon binaries with your existing 9.0.x Bacula Director and Storage daemon it should work fine but has not been tested.

Bacula 9.0.6

This is a bug fix and enhancement release. The two major enhancements are support for Qt5 in bat and the tray monitor, and support for OpenSSL-1.1. However, the current Qt5 enhancement is not yet complete, so please continue to use Qt4 for building bat and the tray monitor. There were also a number of nice bug fixes. Thanks to the users who supplied patches for the enhancements and bug fixes. They are much
appreciated.

Release 9.0.5

I am pleased to announce that we have just released Bacula version 9.0.5
This is an important bug fix release. In particular it fixes the cases
where Bacula would print a very large number of error messages. Additional
backported code from Bacula Enterprise is included as well as updates to
the rpm scripts. A number of minor Baculum issues have also been
corrected.
