Version 1.3.0 of Barman, Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL, has been released, making the tool more robust through a new code infrastructure in terms of output, subprocesses, remote commands, file system, events (‘hooks’) and metadata management.
Barman now supports:
- hook scripts before and after archiving a WAL file
- network compression of remote backup and recovery operations
- immediate checkpoint at backup time
