Beta 11 Preview

In the past few months, we have been focusing on developing the next generation of bun. However, since we have been so quiet, you may be curious about what we have been up to.

The development of beta 11 is drawing to a close. We are now concentrating on testing bun in the lab. Since the features are now finalized, we would also like to give you a preview of what you can expect from the next beta.

Beta 11 is a big enhancement over the previous version of bun. Here is an partial list:
  • Much better performance, thanks to the use of a new database layer that speeds performance by 20% or more.
  • Higher compression ratio makes storage more efficient and backup transfer faster.
  • Advanced and multiple layers of encryptions and checksum protects the confidentiality and integrity of your files.
  • Network folder registration saves you from having to remember what folder you previously backed up.
  • Better and more accurate statistics on how many of your files have been backed up
  • Many bug fixes that improves stability and functionalities (with special thanks to the beta testers who gave us the feedback).
Beta 11 is going through testing right now. If we do not encounter any significant problem, it should be available for download early next year.

Overall, the coming months will be an exciting time for bun, and we look forward to bringing you the result of our hard work.
