The new Bareos 17.2 maintenance version contains improvements and bugfixes. Subscription customers can find installation packages for Windows and all supported Linux distributions in their repositories. The source code is, as always, available on GitHub.


The update contains improvements and bugfixes mainly for the web UI, especially eleminating the problem with waiting times for the directory tree to show up.


Building the AIX 7.1 client packages required some adaptions but now client packages for this platform are also available. Another special fix was necessary to prevent the unwanted re-generation of passwords on Univention's enterprise Linux UCS.
