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.
Version 3.7.0 - 25 July 2023
Support is added for snapshot backups on AWS using EBS volumes.
--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
autogenerate_manifest configuration variable and can
be overridden using the
--no-manifest CLI options.
barman-cloud-* scripts now correctly use continuation
tokens to page through objects in AWS S3-compatible object
stores. This fixes a bug where
would only delete the oldest 1000 eligible WALs after backup
Minor documentation fixes.
