Backups are one of those things that are usually afterthought. Maybe reason for that was a bit too much of necessary configuration or not enough sensible default choices to fit the bill in the older apps I’ve been trying. Either way – this small, single-binary go application simply nails it. All backups are automagically encrypted and deduplicated. These days I tend to setup backups and then just forget about them – they are taken over by restic and it performs its magic on my behalf. Saved my butt few times already.
This release brings no spectacular changes nor features. Which is good, I don’t want my backup solution to have exciting releases – I want bug fixes and small changes and minor enhancements to its matured, stable state. 0.9.6 bring exactly that 🎉
