Bacula Enterprise Release:

In January 2013, we released the Enterprise version 6.2.1. This
version has an enhanced Bweb with a GUI configurator that is really
nice. In addition it has a lot new features and some significant
performance enhancements that will be particularly interesting to
MSPs and ISPs.

Source Forge:

I was not able to upload the latest release on to Source Forge, because
their system refused to create a shell for me. I can tell you after
working hard on a release, it is really discouraging to have everything
stall at the last second.  Fortunately, Eric was able to get a shell and
did the upload for me.


In case you are not aware, since quite awhile all our software has been
released to www.bacula.org.  Just go to:


where you will find it.  It is a lot simpler than Source Forge but it
gets the job done.

Thanks for using Bacula ...

Best regards,

Bacula Community Release version 5.2.13:

This is an important bug fix release.

Version 5.2.13 version has 20 bug fixes since the last
release.  Some of the bug fixes are important.

 As always, both the Director and Storage daemon must be upgraded at
 the same time.

 Older 5.0.x and 3.0.x File Daemons are compatible with the 5.2.13
 Director and Storage daemons. There should be no need to upgrade older
