  • Add Amazon s3 support for archives service (Andrew E. Bruno).
  • Fix bad behavior on CIFS mount (reported by renesepp).
  • Add --retention-age-to-full argument to check the latest full backup age.
  • Rename ignore-archived-since argument to ignore-archived-after.
  • Add ignore-archived-before argument to ignore the archived WALs before the provided interval.
  • Return WARNING instead of CRITICAL in case of missing archived WAL prior to latest backup, regardless its type.
  • Check for each backup its needed archived WALs based on wal start/stop information given by the pgBackRest info command.
