Release Notes for Bacula 5.2.5

Bacula code: Total files = 1,110 Total lines = 231,439 (Using SLOCCount)

The 5.2.5 version is a bug fix release.

Please note there was a seemingly innocent patch made to
version 5.2.4 that had rather serious negative consequences
on restarted jobs.  Anyone using restarted jobs should upgrade
from 5.2.4 to 5.2.5.

If you are upgrading directly from 5.0.3 to this version, please see the
important notices below for version 5.2.3, particularly
the database upgrade and the difference in packaging the
SQL shared libraries.

If you store .bsr or .mail files in the Bacula working
directory, please be aware that they will all be deleted
each time the Director starts.

As always, both the Director and Storage daemon must be upgraded at
the same time.

Older 5.0.x and 3.0.x File Daemons are compatible with the 5.2.3
Director and Storage daemons. There should be no need to upgrade older File

Changes since 5.2.4:

– Disable usage of JS_Warning waiting for a more complete implementation
– Removed old sd plugins which doesn’t work anymore.
– Adapt sample-query.sql for Warning job status
– Fix location of Qt dlls for Win64 build
– Fix MediaView::getSelection
