Holland Backup 1.0.10 Available

Posted on Wed 31 July 2013 by Holland Core Team

We are pleased to announce the release of Holland 1.0.10. This version squashes a number of bugs and also offers up a few new features, which include:

Purge On Demand

Purge on demand is a new option that, if set, causes Holland to purge old backups in order to make space for a new backup as opposed to failing due to lack of space.

Additional Options For Compression Plugins

Custom options can now be specified for to the underlying compression command. This was added to support explicit flags, such as gzip --rsyncable or pigz --processes N.

Routines and Events Now Default for mysqldump

mysqldump will now use the --routines and --events options by default if the version of MySQL supports these features.

mysqldump: Now With More Failure

The mysqldump plugin will now fail by design if it detects that no databases are to be backed up. This often indicates a configuration issue (such as insufficient backup user privileges).

The new version is available as both a tarball and via the OpenSUSE repositories:
