Barman 3.7.0 released

1 minute read

25 July 2023: EnterpriseDB is proud to announce the release of Barman version 3.7.0, a Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL.

Release Notes

  • Support is added for snapshot backups on AWS using EBS volumes.

  • The --profile option in the barman-cloud-* scripts is renamed --aws-profile. The old name is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

  • Backup manifests can now be generated automatically on completion of a backup made with backup_method = rsync. This is enabled by setting the autogenerate_manifest configuration variable and can be overridden using the --manifest and --no-manifest CLI options.

  • Bug fixes:

    • The barman-cloud-* scripts now correctly use continuation tokens to page through objects in AWS S3-compatible object stores. This fixes a bug where barman-cloud-backup-delete would only delete the oldest 1000 eligible WALs after backup deletion.

    • Minor documentation fixes.


Source code and wheel file can be downloaded from release 3.7.0 page.
