    πŸš€ I'm happy to announce the release of BackInTime 1.1.10! A lot of things did happen for BackInTime πŸ™Œ

    • 🌐 first of all I moved BIT from Launchpad to GitHub. Code hosting and bug tracking is now on GitHub. Translations stays on Launchpad.
    • βœ… we now have unittests which will help to prevent future bugs (thanks to Dorian, Alexandre, AurΓ©lien and Gregory from IAGL)! This unittests will be checked with every new commit on (thanks to Taylor).
    • an unfinished new_snapshot can now be continued if possible. This will speed up the process a lot if a previous snapshot failed.
    • GUI will now start much faster when using slow destinations (e.g. a NAS). The snapshots list will be loaded after the GUI comes up.
    • I added a custom icon for the 'show hidden folders' button. The old + was very confusing.
    • navigation with Nautilus shortcuts (e.g. ALT + ←) and Next/Previous Mouse Buttons are now possible.
    • πŸ›  and of course lots of bug fixes
