CVS is relatively up to date. I've been rather busy on other projects
so BackupPC development has slowed. That said, CVS is not too far
away from being the next major release, although there are quite
a few todo items from the mail list that need to be dealt with
The CVS BackupPC requires a new File::RsyncP library which includes
several improvements, including rsync hard link support. However,
it's not released yet. I'll email you the File-RsyncP-0.60.tar.gz
tarball off list if you are willing to try it out.
