EDB is pleased to announce the release of Barman 3.7.0. This release expands support for the snapshot backup_method, which creates full backups by taking snapshots of cloud storage volumes, by adding support for AWS using EBS volume snapshots. Support for Google Cloud disk snapshot and Microsoft Azure managed disks were added in previous Barman releases.

Highlights of this release

Version 3.7.0 - 25 July 2023

  • Support is added for snapshot backups on AWS using EBS volumes.

  • The --profile option in the barman-cloud-* scripts is renamed --aws-profile. The old name is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

  • Backup manifests can now be generated automatically on completion of a backup made with backup_method = rsync. This is enabled by setting the autogenerate_manifest configuration variable and can be overridden using the --manifest and --no-manifest CLI options.

  • Bug fixes:

    • The barman-cloud-* scripts now correctly use continuation tokens to page through objects in AWS S3-compatible object stores. This fixes a bug where barman-cloud-backup-delete would only delete the oldest 1000 eligible WALs after backup deletion.

    • Minor documentation fixes.

This information is also published in the NEWS for Barman.
