This is a maintenance release to address some issues Linux
users have reported with their keychain. With this release

    passphrase in Vorta's settings DB (slightly less secure)

@m3nu m3nu released this Feb 18, 2021

This release adds support for two more Borg commands (rename and break-lock), as well as a
slightly revamped Archive tab. We also updated macOS Wifi support and fixed numberous bugs.

Possible Breaking Changes

  • This removes the profile_slug from the default archive name and prefix. This change only applies to new backup profiles. So if you use the same repo for multiple projects on the same hostname, be sure to check your prune prefix as well. The new default archive name is: {hostname}-{now:%Y-%m-%d-%H%M%S}

New Features


  • Remove support for deprecated macOS XML wifi list. (#868)
  • Catch more possible SSH key parsing errors. (#789)
  • Improve cancelling Borg process (#786)
