Bareos Backup 19.2

Bareos (Backup Archiving Recovery Open Sourced) is a reliable network open source software to backup, archive and restore files from all major operating systems.
The fork was founded 2010 out of the bacula.org project, in order to pursue development of new capabilities and sustainable ensure it’s open source character.

Today Bareos comes with a new multi-lingual and multi-tenancy web ui including restore browser, LTO hardware encryption support, bandwidth limitation, cloud storage support, a redesigned plugin interface, among other new features.

The source code is available on Github and is licensed with AGPLv3. There are ready to install
repositories for all major Linux distributions, MacOS and Windows installer packages.

Today Bareos is the only 100% open source backup solution with professional subscription and support services.

We have customers across all industries (Aerospace, Automotive, Cloud/ISP, Energy, Finance,Education, Government, Media, Tech, Telecom) and sizes including DAX listed and Fortune100 companies
This first release update solves a TLS-Cert problem in the WebUI that occurs with older PHP versions (5.4.x). We've also addressed a bareos-dbcheck performance issue with orphaned path entries.

Bareos 18.2.5 uses TLS encryption right from the start. All daemons (Bareos Director, File Daemon, and Storage Daemon) now support TLS encryption via pre-shared key (PSK) when authenticating. Previous versions required certificates for TLS/SSL encrypted network traffic. The new Bareos version can use existing passwords to encrypt the connection via pre-shared key. Bareos 18.2. remains backward compatible and still works with certificates, so it's not necessary to change an existing configuration. Clients with an older version number are also still supported: Bareos 18.2. supports TLS and plain text at the same time and addresses the older clients as before.

Security of the Bareos Director (and of the WebUI) has been improved: Password authentication now happens via PAM (pluggable authentication modules), so it's no longer necessary to include plain text passwords in the configuration file. This feature is optional – it's not mandatory to adjust the configuration.

We also put a lot of hours into the modernizing of the legacy code. We replaced GNU Autoconf with CMake. As a result the source code is much easier to maintain. Instead of 70,000 lines of Autoconf scripts there are now about 5,000 lines of CMake to look after – a pretty good result.
 
Our GitHub repositories have been reorganized. All Bareos components are now available in one folder and organized in subdirectories. As a result synchronizing the files for new releases has become a lot easier.
 
The Bareos documentation presents itself in a new and modern layout. We switched from LaTeX (and converted HTML code for the online version) to RST (reStructuredText). We now work with the Sphinx framework which makes it convenient to convert the manual into different file formats. As a result, the online manual lo
