Beta 29, 30, 31 - Diagnostic Releases

If you are sharp-eyed, you may have noticed quite a jump in version number in bun in the last few days. This is because we have released a series of diagnostic releases, designed to capture more information about a particular problem we discovered with how the nodes keep track of each other.

First of all, there is no change to the functionality of the program, and the problem does not affect the backup of your files. It is only an anomaly in how sometimes the time stamp will be dated years in the future, causing a node to think that other nodes are present, when they are not. This problem, however, is not in the core backup engine and therefore does not affect the backup of your files.

Beta 27 - File Browser Enhancements

We have released another version of bun. The new release features a much improved file browser, which now have myriad options for filtering the view, so that you can browse for all the pictures, or see a list of files that have not been backed up, all by choosing a view filter.

In addition to the enhancements to the file browser, other improvements were made, including a display of restore status on the dashboard for each folder, and various tweaks for faster backup.

The new release has been made available by installers on the web site and on the automatic update service.

Beta 26 - Network Reliability Improvement

We have released beta 26 of Bun. As you may remember, our last release features a network transport layer that is more reliable than our previous one. This new beta release improves on that by fixing a problem that we have discovered, where the client software running on your computer would occasionally disconnect from the network.

In addition to the improved network transport, we have also made some small improvements on the file backup scanning process and some parts of the user interface.

You can enjoy the new release, courtesy of the automated update service.
