I have released rsbackup version 1.2.


    rsbackup is a backup tool that uses rsync to back up your files to
    hard disks.
      * It uses rsync’s ability to hardlink unchanged files together to
        keep multiple copies with at only the space cost of the
      * Backups may be taken from multiple machines (using SSH) and
        stored to multiple filesystems, which could be fixed or external
      * Old backups are removed automatically, according to a per-volume
        policy giving maximum age and minimum number of backups.
      * The current backup status can be generated as a file or sent
        as an email, with plain text and HTML format supported.
      * Hook features are provided to allow operator-supplied programs to
        be run at key points during the backup process, to ensure that
        devices are mounted, to support backing up via snapshots, etc.


Changes in 1.2:

    * Quoting and completeness fixes to --dump-config option.
    * OSX builds work again.
    * The cron scripts no longer attempt to run rsbackup.cron when it
      has been removed.
    * Some other fixes to Debian packaging.
