Alpha Version


This is a 64 bit version that is at alpha stage. Do not use for production backups.

Furthermore, the archive format is likely to change from release to release, therefore, it is possible that archives made with one release will not be compatible with another.

I know that this version has been a long time coming and many of you are waiting for a whole heap of promised features. These will be slowly added - my first priority to ensure that the 64 bit code is working reliably because 4gb archives are just not useful anymore.
