    Hey everyone. Backup v 2.6.0.31 was released - both CloudBerry Backup and Managed Backup this time. The changes are described compared to Backup v 2.5.0

    Features.

    - Backup for Mac v 2.6.0 works on macOS Mojave.
    A long awaited macOS Mojave (10.14) should be released today, and CloudBerry Backup for Mac works perfectly on it!

    - Block Level Backup.
    Finally files that changed a little don't need to be reuploaded as whole files.
    You can set up a schedule for Full versions (and we strongly recommend to do so) and a schedule for Block versions.
    Some infographics in this Blog article.

    Important things to note:
    1. Block Level in Backup for Mac is based on a more advanced mechanism than that of Backup for Windows - and thus Block Level versions made on Windows are not available for restore on Mac.
    1.1. Block Level versions made on Mac ARE available for restore on Windows.
    1.2. Full versions of files should still be available for restore on both OS.

    2. Retention policy by number of versions ignores Block versions and only counts Full versions. This contradicts the behavior in Backup for Windows.
    3. Files of less than 10 MB size will always be backed up as Full versions, same as in Backup for Windows.

    Points one and two are subject to further improvement in Backup for Windows.


    Bug fixes.

    - Several hanging backup plan cases
    - "Parameter count mismatch" after upgrade from older versions
    - Many minor things such as tooltips, text alignment, some functionality previously missing in some UIs and so on.


    Logging.

    - Logs of High (INFO) level of verbosity now specify why exactly a file is purged (DeletedLocally, NumberOfVersions, RetentionTime - named after the respective rules in retention policy settings).
    - Minor improvements and additions.
