17 November 2021: EnterpriseDB is proud to announce the release of Barman version 2.16, a Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL.

Release notes

  • Add the commands barman-check-wal-archive and barman-cloud-check-wal-archive to validate if a proposed archive location is safe to use for a new PostgreSQL server.

  • Allow Barman to identify WAL that’s already compressed using a custom compression scheme to avoid compressing it again.

  • Add last_backup_minimum_size and last_wal_maximum_age options to barman check.

  • Bug fixes:

    • Use argparse for command line parsing instead of the unmaintained argh module.

    • Make timezones consistent for begin_time and end_time.

  • We thank chtitux, George Hansper, stratakis, Thoro, and vrms for their contributions to this release.
