Bacula Release 9.6.5

This is a major security and bug fix release. We suggest everyone to upgrade as soon as possible. Note it replaces version 9.6.4, which was withdrawn due to some incorrect copyrights and some missing image files.

One significant improvement is for the AWS S3 cloud driver. First the ode base has been brought much closer to the Enterprise version (still a long ways to go). Second is that the community code now uses the latest version of libs3 as maintained by Bacula Systems. The libs3 code is available as a tar file for Bacula version 9.6.4 at:

www.bacula.org/downloads/libs3-20200523.tar.gz

Version 9.6.5 must be compiled with the above libs3 version or later.

Bacula Release 9.6.3

This is a minor new release with several new features and a number of bug
fixes. The catalog datbase format remains unchanged from the 9.4.4 release

Note: Release-9.6.0 had a build error when using readline, and Release-9.6.1
had an inappropriate file size for the readline history file, so both releases
have been withdrawn.

Major Baculum New Features:
– SELinux support
– New graph types
– Graphical client status
– Graphical running job status
– Capability to start, stop and restart components
