Arq 2.4 is out!

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Arq version 2.4 is now available!

This update includes support for the new “sa-east-1″ (São Paulo, Brazil) S3 region.

It also now checks whether Amazon S3 is experiencing long “eventual consistency” delays, abort backup and budget enforcement activities until the next backup interval to avoid potential data loss due to incorrect (old) values being returned from S3.

It’s a free update for all Arq users. Pick “Check for Updates” from the Arq menu to get the update.

As always, full release notes for all Arq versions are on the release notes page.
