There may be soon the first pre-release of version 4.3.1 Beta. I need to test a lot (even for such a little program like HomeBak is), and also I am using now git for version control system, and it makes really fun to work with git.
After a long time, I began to work on version 4.3, where I will reform the sourcecode absolutely new, because the old code structure is sooo obsolete. I am thinking about using threads for calling the archive-binary. This may have advantages and disadvantages - we'll see, what fits best.
A (background-running) backup system for Win32 (homebak) or Linux (clbp) to save either several directories or whole drives using one or more config-files; creates one or more backup-files. Uses wincron (Win32-version) like Un*x/Linux crond.
after a buggy 4.2.0 you should use this 4.2.0b release now. It contains no GUI for creating configurations files , only the perl-exe that you may use with:
(for example "makeconf.exe c:\\etc") ... read more
Added a small GUI for extraction of arj archives created with the HomeBak.
GUI was written in C++/QT4.
We plan to release the next version of HomeBak for Windows (the ARJ32-version). It will include a GUI for extracting arj-archives, written in C++/QT. The perlcode should be cleaned up an include new errorhandling.

We are working on a bugfix (see open bugs) for the problem with multible directories.
For now you should use HomeBak with arj-compression.
Fixed Bug. ID:1910494 Topic:7-Zip warning error: [drive]:\System Volume Information\
This is the first release of HomeBak
that uses 7-Zip for creating archives
instead of arj.
in testing stage it worked fine.
Please report any bugs to me:
Have a nice day :)
Only some minor changes in this release.

for creating archives.

The new HomeBak for Linux/i386 was
Finaly I released this beta release that uses
only blat for sending emails anymore. You
can configure if Homebak should use AUTH-Login for
sending emails or not.
This release is still Beta, so please let
me know when you found any bugs.
But it shoudl work fine.
I will continue testing.
There was a smal bug that could
be fixed now while sending
the logfile after a backup was created.
I released now a version that uses "blat" (www.blat.net) for sending emails. Blat uses the AUTH LOGIN mechnism
for authentication on the emailserver.
So it is possible now to send emails for example
via an emailprovider like GMX.
If you do not need AUTH LOGIN you should use the
Win32/arj distribution of HomeBak.
Please report any bugs to me:
Fixed perl warning messages.
I did not test the installer,
but there should be no problem
The bug is fixed now. There was a system-call, that
always returnes 0, so the process always dies
by 'system() || or die '
Theres a bug in 2.2.1
Will be fixed soon!
See the bug tracking system for details

clbp (cute little backup program)
