DarGUI 0.1.0 Released

The initial release of DarGUI is now available for download. DarGUI is a graphical frontend for the Disk ARchiving utility (DAR) which aims to make it easier and quicker to perform common backup tasks using DAR. It uses the GTK+ library which is installed on most linux distributions so usually the only additional dependency is DAR.

DarGUI aims to complement and enhance the commandline features of DAR rather than conceal them and to help users to learn how DAR works so that they can use it from the commandline when necessary. More information about the project can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/dargui/ . More information about DAR is available at http://dar.linux.free.fr/... read more
