    Release Notes: The ability to perform differential backups has been added. Support has been added for setting a backup schedule within the configuration file. This will allow you to set the type of backup that is performed on each day of the week. In past versions, this was hard coded. The ability to specify the date the backups are rotated has been added; in past versions, this was hard coded to be Sunday. Many bugfixes and code enhancements were made.

      Release Notes: Fixes a bug in the configuration parsing that would break email reporting. Fixes a bug that would cause the backup to fail if it attempted to backup a directory with some special characters in it. Fixes a bug in the FTP functions that caused ESR to exit on an FTP failure without returning an error. Fixes a timestamp issue where the date in the email reports would show Jan 1, 1970 on some systems. Optimizes the backup engine code and cleans up some old references that were no longer needed. Adds better support for upgrades.

        Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that occured when transferring files to an FTP Servu FTP server on Windows and one which occured when parsing filenames with special characters (these characters are now properly escaped). Support for sending email reports via a external SMTP server in addition to the sendmail binary has been added.

          Release Notes: This version fixes an "Invalid cross-device link" error that occurred on some operating systems when attempting to move files across file system boundaries. An upgrade package is also available containing only the files that have changed since the last release.

            Release Notes: This release fixes a major bug with the archive rotation code where the archives would not be rotated and stored correctly. There was a general code cleanup and tuning, and some inconsistencies with the documentation and install file were fixed.

              Release Notes: A bug that gave confusing and incorrect error messages was fixed. A bug that could cause backup corruption when using ESR Backup with multiple users and multiple configuration files was fixed. The configuration file was restructured for easier use. An archive timestamp was added, so multiple daily backups are possible. A bug where a mail error could be generated even if the email reporting option was not set was fixed. decrypt-archive.pl will now check to see if an archive has been encrypted before working on it, and thus will avoid mangling unencrypted archives.

                Release Notes: This release adds improved signal handling code so that temporary files are removed if the software receives an interrupt signal or encounters a fatal error. Overall error checking throughout the code has been improved. Email reporting capabilities have been added, which if enabled will send you a status report for each backup it performs. It will also include any errors or warnings encountered. The -q flag has been added to suppress warnings and errors to the console. An upgrade package has been added to the download site for those who want to upgrade from a previous version.

                  Release Notes: This version changes the parsing of the backup definition file to allow comments and blank lines. It allows for easier organization of the file for complex backups. An archive label was added to the configuration file, which allows you to label your archives with a custom tag. A bug was fixed where if the program encountered an error backing up some files it would not make a log entry or generate a error. Now any files that cannot be backed up will generate a message in the log giving the filename and the reason.
