2ndQuadrant is proud to announce the release of version 1.2.3 of Barman, Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL.
This minor release adds compatibility with PostgreSQL 9.3.
It also introduces support for the "--target-name" recovery option, which allows to restore to a named point previously specified with pg_create_restore_point (only for PostgreSQL 9.1 and above users).
Experimental compatibility with Python 3 has also been added. We encourage Python 3 users to test this version of Barman and report any feedback to our development team.
Minor bugs have also been fixed.
For a complete list of changes, see the "Release Notes" section below.
Barman (Backup and Recovery Manager) is an open source administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers written in Python. It allows your organisation to perform remote backups of multiple servers in business critical environments and help DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman's most requested features include backup catalogues, retention policies, remote recovery, archiving and compression of WAL files and backups.
Built on top of PostgreSQL's robust and reliable Point-In-Time-Recovery technology, Barman allows database administrators to manage the backup and recovery phases of several PostgreSQL database servers from a centralised location, using an intuitive command interface. Barman is distributed under GNU GPL 3.
