Release Notes for Arq Backup Version 1.6

Feature Additions

Several performance improvements, including:

  • Much faster collection of referenced objects for a backup version (used in verify-backups phase).
  • Much faster caching of current S3 object list (used when backing up).

Bug Fixes

Several fixes to reduce the size of the cache in Library/Arq/Caches.noindex:

  • Periodically consolidate “packs”, removing unused objects to save space.
  • Delete invalid/obsolete cache files from disk.
  • Changed default verify-backups interval from 1 day to 4 days.

And some other fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where a network error wasn’t passed on to the user, resulting in an incompletely-restored file.
  • Fixed issues with the pause feature.
  • Updated the UI to reflect new S3 pricing.
  • Fixed an issue with positioning the help bubble on the first setup window.
