I have released rsbackup 3.1.


   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 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 disks.
      * Old backups are removed automatically, using flexible per-volume
      * 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,

Changes in 3.1:

   * Don’t throw exceptions from destructors.
     Addresses Debian bug #811705.
   * Fix error handling in character encoding translation.
   * Patch from Maria Valentina Marin to use consistent mtimes
     during .deb build. Fixes Debian bug #793716.
   * Stop cron scripts exiting nonzero if .deb is removed.
     Fixes Debian bug #810335.
   * Patch from Jonathon Wiltshire to use install rather than
     cp during .deb builds.
   * Correct distribution of scripts.
   * Add missing .deb build dependencies.
