Hello all! I’ve just released Déjà Dup 43.beta with some minor fixes on top of the previous alpha, and I’d love any continued testing that folks can manage.
All of the rest of this message is the same as the alpha release - no new features landed in the beta, just bug fixes. And I don’t expect any further features before 43.0, which will likely be made as soon as there is a stable libadwaita to depend on.
New: Microsoft OneDrive storage support
You can now choose Microsoft OneDrive when selecting a storage location in the Preferences screen.
When backing up, you’ll be prompted to connect Déjà Dup to your Microsoft account. Note that you can only use your personal account for this, not your business account.
New: Restic backup support
This is opt-in. Nothing will change for you unless you enable this in Preferences → Labs.
Restic is an alternative underlying backup tool to duplicity. It is hopefully faster, and may allow us to add future features more easily (like changing your encryption password).
This is very early days with our support for Restic, so please don’t enable it for any backups you care about.
New: UI updates
Déjà Dup got ported to gtk4 and libadwaita1. This will hopefully only be a welcome visual refresh. But please be on the lookout for any broken corners of the UI.
- Remove your existing install, to avoid any confusion.
flatpak uninstall org.gnome.DejaDup
- Add the flathub beta repository.
flatpak remote-add --user --if-not-exists flathub-beta https://flathub.org/beta-repo/flathub-beta.flatpakrepo
- Install 43.beta from flathub.
flatpak install --or-update flathub-beta org.gnome.DejaDup//beta
- And now you should see
Backupsin your applications list.
All testing is welcome, and reports of either success or failure would be delightful. Either here, or in a gitlab issue .
Thanks for reading!
