Change Logs

* Wed May 27 2020 Paolo Stivanin <>
- Update to 1.5.5
  * #314: Fix regression in support for PostgreSQL's "directory" dump format. Unlike other dump
    formats, the "directory" dump format does not stream directly to/from Borg.
  * #315: Fix enabled database hooks to implicitly set one_file_system configuration option to true.
  * This prevents Borg from reading devices like /dev/zero and hanging.
  * #316: Fix hang when streaming a database dump to Borg with implicit duplicate source directories
    by deduplicating them first.
  * #319: Fix error message when there are no MySQL databases to dump for "all" databases.
  * Improve documentation around the installation process. Specifically, making borgmatic commands
    runnable via the system PATH and offering a global install option.
- Update to 1.5.4
  * #310: Fix legitimate database dump command errors (exit code 1) not being treated as errors by
  * For database dumps, replace the named pipe on every borgmatic run. This prevent hangs on stale
    pipes left over from previous runs.
  * Fix error handling to handle more edge cases when executing commands.
- Update to 1.5.3
  * #258: Stream database dumps and restores directly to/from Borg without using any additional
    filesystem space. This feature is automatic, and works even on restores from archives made with
    previous versions of borgmatic.
  * #293: Documentation on macOS launchd permissions issues with work-around for Full Disk Access.
  * Remove "borgmatic restore --progress" flag, as it now conflicts with streaming database restores.

  * 290: Fix the "--stats" and "--files" flags so that they yield
  output at verbosity 0.

  only. You can increase the verbosity via the
  "--monitoring-verbosity" flag.

  * #284: Backup to a removable drive or intermittent server via
  "soft failure" feature. See the documentation for more
  * #287: View consistency check progress via "--progress" flag for
  "check" action. For "create" and "prune" actions, no longer list
  files or show detailed stats at any verbosities by default. You
  can opt back in with "--files" or "--stats" flags. For "list"
  and "info" actions, show repository names even at verbosity 0.
* Wed Jan 22 2020 Martin Rey <>
- Update to 1.4.2
  * Extract files to a particular directory via "borgmatic extract --destination" flag.
