RE CHRIS NOTES:
The backup file listing shows a lot of "Unknown" strings. Considering
that some of the listings have seven unknowns, the information becomes muddled and
difficult to read.
Unknown should only be displayed for old backups (hopefully). Any
suggestions on cleaning this up for backups that lack this data?
PclZip issue
Unable to replicate.
This error is thrown here. From your log this means that fopen
must have returned a false for some reason for you.
1953 if (($this->zip_fd = @fopen($this->zipname, $p_mode))
== 0)
1954 {
1955 // ----- Error log
1956 PclZip::privErrorLog(PCLZIP_ERR_READ_OPEN_FAIL,
'Unable to open archive \''.$this->zipname.'\' in '.$p_mode.' mode');

After adding a destination, it appears that the only thing that happens
is that the inputs empty. I have to scroll to the top of the dialog to see that
something has actually happened. The same thing happens when modifying an existing
destination except that the inputs do not clear out after submission. If the
submission is to be handled by Javascript and not a fresh page load, then the page
should be automatically scrolled to the top so that it is clear that the action did
something.
Unable to replicate. Forms submit without javascript and the
action goes back to the same page with an anchor to the same tab so it should be
going to the top.
When selecting an existing remote destination, what if I want to use a
different path? An option should allow for customizing the path without requiring
modification of the remote destination (if the destination is used for backups and
the user forgets to change it back after the migration, then their new site will
start to fill with backups). The feature should support supplying new FTP
information without creating a new destination.
The entire remote destination system needs refactored and really
needs to be done to make this doable without severe rigging.
As a workaround I've added the ability to duplicate destinations
for now until the destination system is redone.
Backup listing actions inconsistent. For example clicking the backup
filename on the migration page shouild start migration instead of downloading the
archive. @see Chris' suggestions for handling this. - re: Chris

Now setting commandline path per execution.
Pulled out calls to exec() into new pb_backupbuddy_commandline class. In the
future all commandline executions will be funnelled through this class instead of
having handling fallbacks, exec detection, etc in multiple libraries as we have
grown to using commandline in multiple places now (zip, mysqldump, textreplace,
etc).

Subsequent messages are now displayed in the message box. - re: Chris

MINOR ISSUES NOT YET IMPLEMENTED:
Magic migration inclusion of importbuddy means the migration no longer
matches WordPress styling when still inside WordPress. - Cody
Getting Started page far-right column hanging off page edge slightly still. -
Dustin
It could be helpful to redirect or display help information on using
ImportBuddy or RepairBuddy after clicking to download the script.
Re-evaluate how this currently works to implement this. This would be
helpful for guiding users.
Capitalization in S3 bucket names seem to be ignored when copying. Not sure
why this would happen yet. - re: Chris
Magic migration:
If sending to remote destination and the file already exists then don't
overwrite without confirmation. @see Chris suggestions on handling this. - re:

field currently.
If ZipArchive is unavailable the note is only stored in the integrity
data structure and an alert notifies the user of this.

Editing an existing note displays existing note text in editing box.
Notes should be 175 characters or less. (Actual limit is 200 characters
to allow a little wiggle room for the user).
Now tracking creation date rather than modified for backup listing so note
changes won't change backup date and order.

provided PEAR files on some servers.

content/uploads/backupbuddy_backups/temp_zip_XXXX/ for failed backups.

Exclusions file now rendered into wp-
content/uploads/backupbuddy_temp/XXXXX/exclusions.txt for use with zip excluding.
On load of importbuddy.php's login page, if the importbuddy directory already

importbuddy script with a new one (to upgrade or fix a bad password, etc).
Fixed escaping of $_POST content when outside WordPress (ie ImportBuddy) AND
magic quotes are ENABLED. - Issue #277.
Many AJAX calls process $_POST rather than pb_backupbuddy::post() so

completed on backup page.
As soon as a backup completes you are given the option to download or
send the completed backup to a remote destination (or neither and the backup will
stay in your local BackupBuddy backups directory).

filesystem.

Works great combined with the Note feature.
Added additional explanatory text noting to use the `Alternative zip system`
when falling into compatibility mode which fixes exclusions not working in that
case.
FEATURE: Individual files can now be excluded from backups (no longer just
directories!). Now listing files in exclusions navigator for easier exclusion of
individual files.
A few giant files clogging up your backups? Not only can you exclude
entire directories but now you can also exclude individual files!
ImportBuddy: When wp-config.php is unwritable ImportBuddy will notify user &
give the content the user may paste into the file. This was only displaying "Array"
rather than the config content.
mysqlbuddy updated to provide error message when mysql_query() returns false.
Upgraded Amazon S3 library to 0.5.0.
Added ImportBuddy favicon.
FEATURE: Added Amazon S3 support for "Reduced Redundancy" class storage for a
more affordable cloud storage option.
A more affordable option than S3, reduced redundancy offers lower
prices for storage and transfer at the cost of the backup being replicated less
across the S3 network. This offers less redundancy in the case of catostrophic
failures of the Amazon S3 system but costs less.

Sometimes things go wrong and your database gets corrupted. This often
means having to use a web hosting tool or something like phpmyadmin to attempt to
repair it. BackupBuddy now offers the option to test and run the mysql command to
perform a basic repair on database tables. This can be accessed on the Server
Information page by hovering over a table name in the list. This is a simple way to
check and perform a basic repair.
ImportBuddy upload feature no longer redirects back to login screen.
Added local destination file manager/client.
Fixed Server Info page directory size listing not taking exclusions into
account properly. - Issue #289.

servers (the so-called "Cloud").
All backups are encrypted upon arrival at their storage destination
with AES256 encryption.
You may store as many backups as your storage alotment allows.
Limit the number of archives by site.
Backups are organized within their own site folder for easy access.
Manage your backups, delete, copy down to local, or get a direct
download link good for an hour.
FEATURE: PHP Max Execution time tester added (beta)
Allows you to actually perform a test to determine your real tested
maximum execution time allowed by your server. BackupBuddy attempts to override the
execution time allowed to a very high number but almost all hosts cap the number
much lower so the reported number can be far too high. This test actually runs a
script and keeps trask of the elapsed time to determine the actual maximum
execution time limit of your server.
FEATURE: Stash now supports multipart uploads (chunking uploads into pieces
to allow larger files to be transferred in pieces over time).
Extremely large files can now be transferred to Stash than could be
before by breaking files up into 'chunks' and sending one piece at a time.
User can specify the chunk size that is transferred to Stash at a time.
FEATURE: Backup download URL now included in scheduled backup success
notifications.
Easily download completed scheduled backups from the notification email
(if this feature is enabled in settings).

Improved URL explanation and error messages to better explain URL /
upload directory mismatch problems.
User is prompted to test & verify the destination URL prior to
selecting.
Stash signing expiration set to 12 min.
Changed error code #5445589 to #9031.
File size now logged for files being sent to destinations.

"Unknown"s.
Fixed missing Malware Scanner warning icon.

Removed remaining S3 reduced redundancy call.
Tilde ~ stripped from backup filename now.
Fixed inability to delete files from all files Stash page due to requiring

it.
Fixed missing button-grad.png and button-grad-active.png references for
destination CSS.

Fixed invalid serial error if ImportBuddy password has not been set.
3.1.5.2 - 2012-11-27 - Dustin Bolton
FEATURE: cPanel databases can now be created from within ImportBuddy.
To make it easier to perform a restore or migration you can now provide
your cPanel login credentials and BackupBuddy will connect to cPanel and create and
set up your database and set permissions so you don't have to go to all of the
trouble of performing this complicated step that is often a struggling point for
many users, especially their first time.

overrided.
Keys not disabled pre-insert and re-enabled post-insert per table in SQL
dumps for both mysqldump and phpdump.

site root (ie from a recent restore) and warns.
ENHANCEMENT: ImportBuddy now checks for existing index.htm/html file before
restore to warn of it potentially blocking WordPress from loading.
Sometimes you may have an index.htm/html file in the directory you
restored to. On some servers this can prevent the loading of WordPress. Now you
will receive a warning as one additional layer of checks we perform to help make
imports as smooth as possible.
Maximum PHP runtime no longer overriden if it is equal to 0 (unlimited) or
greater than the number we would be changing it to (currently 7200 seconds).
Incomplete or in-process backups could show the finished time as being far in
the past. Fixed to properly denote the backup as unfinished.
Status log now displayed again in textarea so copy/pasting to support will
not lose newlines.

_significant_ improvements including but not limited to: No more 150mb API limit,
significant memory usage reduction, and multipart chunked sends for breaking up
large files.
sFTP (beta) destination added. Provide feedback of success or any
problems encountered during beta stage.

alert rather than popup javascript alert box.
Fixed update link showing minor version available on Server Info page even if
on latest minor version.
Fixed "Recent Backups" page listing backups out of proper chronological order
for some.
periodic_cleanup() now has a minimum age limit before orphaned fileoptions
files will be purged. This helps keep Recent Backups page properly populated.
Deleting a backup via backups_list()'s form no longer immediately deletes its
fileoptions file. The cleanup function is now handling all purging of this.
Removed call to undefined function on Error #4455484589.
Updated zipbuddy library regarding file_exists() issue.
Fixed issue where Recent Backups page may not always show all backups.
FEATURE:
New Dropbox destination available for users of PHP 5.3 or newer with

Improved performance and large file support.
Supports multipart chunking to increase file sizes able to be
transferred to Dropbox.
ENHANCEMENT:

credentials are valid to avoid error cascade.
Updated ZipBuddy library files to use pre-built test ZIP file.
Amazon S3: Prior to each chunked send any existing multipart transfers
stalled will be aborted with S3 if they exceed cerain age to free up resources in
S3 account.
Amazon S3: Periodic BackupBuddy housekeeping function will look for and

PHP database dump now logs last query attempted on fatal failure (eg. on
error mysql server went away).
Added additional check for existance of profile index when setting up profile
for manually triggered backup.
Disabled spawn_cron() call for manual backups. Prevents very odd race
condition where an additional spawned process could run concurrently -- but ONLY
immediately after the database dump. This may have been the cause of some servers'
cron failing to schedule immediately after the Database dump step.
Updated Windows ZIP executable ZIP file to include newer zip versions at a
new URL: http://ithemes.com/backupbuddy_files/backupbuddy_windows_unzip.zip
Updated file_tree() function to handle missing wp-content and other edge

site that are both in the same bucket / directory location for safety.
Critical S3 fix for bug since vBackupBuddy v4.1 under a SPECIFIC scenario
which could result in inadvertant deletion of files within S3 bucket subdirectories
deeper than the remote destinations'. Requirements for this to occur:
1) Must be running BackupBuddy v4.1.0.0 - v4.1.0.4.

subdirectories within said destination's bucket & directory.
2) Subdirectories within this destination's bucket/directory must
contain content that pushes the backup limit over the threshold.

4.1.1.13 - 2013-10-04 - Dustin Bolton for Updater
Enhancement: When releases with four version digits are released (such as
2.1.0.3), by default, the updater will not offer to update if just this last digit
is updated. For instance, it will not automatically offer to update 2.1.0.1 to
2.1.0.3; rather, an automatic upgrade will become available when version 2.1.1 or
greater is released. If you wish to force an update to these versions, you can add
ithemes-updater-force-minor-update=1 to an admin page request (such as
http://domain.com/wp-admin/index.php?ithemes-updater-force-minor-update=1) in order
to force the updater make these releases available for an hour. If the update is
not performed within the hour, the updater reverts back to default behavior.

5.0.0.0 - 2014-08-20 - Dustin Bolton
OVERVIEW:
This release focuses on improving core functionality to the next level
on both the backup and restore side. Performance, robustness, and usability have
all been
improved in this release. This means that BackupBuddy and ImportBuddy
are easier to use & understand as well as better handling larger sites better,
especially
large databases. More advanced handling of problems and various
fallbacks and intelligent checks (eg to handle .htaccess AddHandler issues) help to
work around
previous issues. If something does go wrong that cannot be worked
around BackupBuddy or ImportBuddy will look at the situation and give contextually
appropriate
information to help you resolve the problem without having to seek
outside help or reference. Improved persistant logging helps track processes for
troubleshooting if support is still needed.

$this->_backup var).
Integrity check now checks that breakout table .sql files all exist.
ImportBuddy: Fixed problem where sometimes cleanup step would be missing
styling or graphics by using JS to load steps.
sFTP destination: Fixed backup trying to send into incorrect path. First the
path was changed into and then the file to upload included the path, resulting in
doubling up of the path.
Fixed typo in Dropbox description (multipark->multipart).
Bug: Malware scan now using home_url() to calculate URL rather than
site_url().
Setup wizard now calculates which destinations are supported by server and
provides all compatibility destinations as options. Eg Dropbox v2.

lingering longer until periodic housekeeping cleanup function removes it.
Fixed incorrect background color when restoring a file from backup.
File restore from backup now falls back to using copy/unlink combination when
restoring files if rename() fails.
Added note to not send complete log when seeking support unless requested and
instead to send Status Log made during backups.

enabled).
Flushing (flush() calls) can be disabled by setting the constant
BACKUPBUDDY_NOFLUSH to TRUE in wp-config.php for rare server issue or
troubleshooting.
Fixed potential bug whereby ImportBuddy would seek out the DAT file in the
root of the site before checking the temp subdirectory. This could result in using
the wrong DAT file loading and thus an import failure with unexpected issues.
Added warning suppression to php_uname() calls in zipbuddy to prevent
warnings when generating server signature.
Removed S3 key retrieval link as this is depricated due to secret keys no
longer being supported.
Backup steps view now lists steps taking less than 1 second as < 1 second
rather than 0.
Timed out backups are now examined for potential problems and their status
updated appropriately to prevent 'hanging' timed out backups.

chunking was enabled was not happening. Fixed.
Fixed Server Tools page quick release links being reversed.
Fixed additional temp directory exclusions missing trailing slash during
generation.
Bug: Malware scanner showed site_url() when it should be testing and showing
home_url() results.
Setup wizard now only shows destinations compatible with the server
BackupBuddy is running on instead of all of them.
View & restore of files from within an archive now use copy/unlink rather
than rename to handle moving between different filesystems.
ImportBuddy: Database backup restores no longer dump their contents into the
site root for security and instead use a randomly named subdirectory to hold these
temporary files.
ImportBuddy: importbuddy.php can now be renamed and still run as expected.
New Sync verb: backupbuddy-add-schedule
New Sync verb: backupbuddy-delete-schedule
New Sync verb: backupbuddy-list-destinationTypes

Now logging list_parts() response for S3 and Stash destinations for better
troubleshooting of multipart send failures.
WordPress cron schedules for scheduled backups are now periodically audited
to check for duplicate schedules. If any are found they are removed. Inability to
unschedule will log an error.
Cron's destination_send() function now accepts an additional unique
identifier to lock running so that the same transfer does not run multiple times
due to cron issues. Upon cron.php destination_send() running, a file is created in
the BB log directory named cronSend-UNIQUE_ID_HERE.lock if it does not exists with
a string of 1 as the contents. If it already exists then the schedule has run more
than once and the attempt will be logged with the attempt count and halted.
ENHANCEMENT:
Added additional API methods for calling by 3rd party plugins. See
classes/api.txt for details. More documentation coming soon.

PHP process ending on some servers.
Recently made backups and recently sent files can be viewed on those pages by
clicking the new link to the right of the page title at the upper left of the page
content.
Added check for S3 test to see if CFRuntime class already exists which would
indicate another plugin loading S3 libraries on BackupBuddy pages causing a
conflict.

FEATURE:
BackupBuddy Stash Live
Requires PHP v5.3 or newer. PHP v5.3 was released June 30th,
2009.
The easiest to use, most shared hosting-friendly backup solution,
without sacrificing any power. Live backup of all content, snapshots stored to
Stash, and all files scanned for malware and viruses.
Mirrors your complete site including files, database, and all
WordPress content offsite to BackupBuddy Stash Live servers, keeping your backup in
sync with your site.
Live backup of WordPress database changes as they occur,
including periodic full database dumps to insure nothing gets out of sync.
Backup of all site files to Live servers, scanned regularly for
changes, new, or deleted files.
Schedule to regularly snapshot zip files of all the data stored
on the BackupBuddy Stash Live servers.
Option to manually create a snapshot of the stored data.
Snapshotting results in a full backup zip file, database only
backup zip file, a zip of the theme directory, and a zip of the plugin directory.
Snapshots are fully BackupBuddy compliant zip files.
Snapshots are fully scanned for malware and viruses, able to
catch infections not normally found by front-end only scanners.
Automatically requests BackupBuddy Stash Live servers 'ping' the
site during Live activity to prevent delays between steps for low activity sites.
Your latest snapshot zip file is stored for a week regardly of
whether it is also set to save into Stash.
Snapshots may be stored indefinitely in your Stash storage,
limited only by your Stash quota.
Advanced options to control additional inclusions or exclusions
beyond your BackupBuddy defaults.
Easy to use. Sign in with your iThemes login and BackupBuddy
Stash Live immediately starts backing up your site.
Incremental: only changed files are transferred, saving server
resources and time.
Regular file auditing. Not only are file transfers verified as
they occur but also all files are regularly verified against the BackupBuddy Stash
Live server to insure they are still properly in sync.
Works on local development sites as long as either a) site
activity exists (such as by you using the wp-admin) or b) you stay on the
BackupBuddy Stash Live page to continue to push the cron along.
New Sync verb backupbuddy-get-liveStats for retrieving local
catalog/state statistics such as those shown on the BackupBuddy Stash Live page.
Live update of stats when viewing the BackupBuddy Stash Live
page.
FEATURE:
Stash (v2) destination now requests Stash Server to ping site whenever
chunking commences to help push the cron along for inactive sites.
FEATURE:
Added single retry when attempting to schedule a one-time or recurring
event in case there is a temporary problem.
FEATURE:
Only one BackupBuddy cron action may run per PHP page load. Subsequent
actions will be rescheduled for the next load.
FEATURE:
If any maximum log file size is exceeded it is now trimmed down to 50%
of its size (keeping most recent 50%) instead of completely deleting the log file.
ENHANCEMENT:
Adding remote destinations are now grouped by "Preferred", "Normal",
and "Legacy" to make selecting destinstions easier.
ENHANCEMENT:
New option to limit the number of files returned in Amazon S3 (v2)
destination. Defaults to 250 files per page.

twice after 1 second delay each time to try and wait for unlock.
Fixed backup profile name option dividing profile name and type with
underscore rather than dash.
Moved Advanced Setting to override Maximum Execution Time detection from
'Database' to 'Overall' section as it applies to other processes besides database
chunking, including BackupBuddy Stash Live chunking.
Improved remote file send fileoptions cleanup performance.
Remote send fileoptions cleanup now also removed lock file (if exists).
Deployment no longer sends error emails for failed remote sends.
Now limiting the maximum number of notifications (as used by Recent Activity
page & Sync) to 25 most recent notifications to prevent excess notification
buildup.
Added new deepscandir() to replace deepglob() as deepglob() did not support
directories or files beginning with a period.
Anti directory browsing function now recursively creates directory if needed.
S3 (v2) destionation: Fixed 'Next Page' button showing even if there are no
more pages.
S3 (v2) destination: Fixed inability to delete remote files due to extra
slash in path.
Stash (v) destination: Fixed long load times due to trying to load backup
type from fileoptions. File listing no longer falls back to fileoptions for backup
type.
fileoptions no longer pauses and re-attempts to read a fileoptions file if
the file does not exist; now only does this if the file exists but is empty.
Added new {home_url} variable for error notification emails.
Error emails now default to mentioning the {home_url} rather than {site_url}
in emails.
ImportBuddy: Now handles Live-formatting SQL filenames, prefixed with
underscores. Imports underscore prefixed timestamped SQL files after normal SQL
files, playing them back in the order they occurred.
FEATURE:
Automatic testing of the reported maximum PHP execution time.
Improved reliability of traditional backups, remote destination
sends, Deployments, and BackupBuddy Stash Live.
Many servers report their maximum PHP execution time as a higher
number than is actually available. This interferes with BackupBuddy's chunking
during database backups, file transfers,
and other operations which require a lot of time. As of v7.0
BackupBuddy will actually test the available runtime and use the lesser value
between the reported and tested numbers to
ensure that chunking commences before time runs out, drastically
reducing the chance of timeouts during any procedure where chunking is available
and the server is misreporting runtime.
Added additional logging when error is returned accessing remote API during
deployment.
Fixed AJAX URL compatibility issue with WPML plugin.
New default log size of 3MB. Updated to new default if old value was either
of the old defaults of 10mb or 5mb.
Backup steps now schedule their single event slightly in the past to push to
top. -155sec. Live schedules -60 into the past to come in second place.
Fixed manual triggering of PHP runtime checker not showing results properly.
Memory usage logged in Status Logs now indicates current usage rather than
peak for better troubleshooting.
Renamed "Local Directory" Remote Destination to "Local Directory Copy" to
help indicate its purpose better.
Added alert to Local Directory Copy destination informing about how
BackupBuddy already stores a local copy of backups and that this is for additional
copies.
FEATURE:
Live: Watched for file changes and uploads immediately: Added media,
plugins, themes via WordPress. Deleted media and plugins.
ENHANCEMENT:
Added protection against email flooding if too many error occurs too
closely together.
Changed EJS template extension from .ejs to .htm to prevent MIME type issues
on IIS (Windows) servers.
FEATURE:
Enhanced emails added with HTML styling for better presentation of
notification emails.
FEATURE:
Quick Setup Wizard now automatically chooses the newest version of a
particular Remote Destination compatible with your server.
Function running too long message no longer displays for zip file creation
step since it tracks the time since zip file growth and warns on that.
Now logging currentl sql file to 9010 error log file for troubleshooting.
No longer reporting error for failed schedule creations as long as we can
verify the schedule does indeed exist.
ImportBuddy: Upgraded Stash restore functionality to use new Stash v2 API for
improved performance and foreward compatibility.

Deployment: Added new option to compare files between sites based on file
hashes for enhanced reliability detecting file changes.

help discourage use: Dropbox (v1), Amazon S3 (v1), Stash (v1). No ETA on retirement
but further notice as well as more alerts will be displayed prior to retirement.

string error was not caught. Now properly halting periodic process.

Ansley
7.3.0.1 - 2017-02-27 - Dustin Bolton
OVERVIEW:
This release focuses on increasing robustness and reliability of the
Stash Live and Deployment features.
Also includes the official release of Quick Release updates 7.2.2.1-
7.2.2..6, including all features and enhancements within those.
FEATURES:
Automatic cleanup of expired transients from the database to increase
site performance and reduce needless old transients from hanging in the database.
Automatic cleanup of corrupt transients from the database.

PROFILES
New "Smart Profiles" Themes, Plugins, Media for backing up files of
each respective type/location:
SCREENSHOT:
http://image.prntscr.com/image/c866aeb96c8d47dd86d44dbd66b3274b.png
Use the new default smart profiles or create your own for further
customizing. These new profile types allow you to automatically only backup this
section of the site, allowing for more granular control over what is backed up by a
profile. Paired with scheduling this allows you to easily break up backup processes
into smaller portions for better spreading server load or timeout issues,
especially for larger sites. Smart profiles also support directory and file
exclusions.
New "Custom backup root" option for all profile types (except
database):
SCREENSHOT:
http://image.prntscr.com/image/af2c0f714183423eb8b04d4c146ad1e6.png
You can now configure which directory BackupBuddy backs up on a
per-profile basis. Prior to this feature you could only backup the entire site and
select directories to exclude. You can now select any directory to be backed up,
even directories ABOVE the WordPress root (abspath) by using "/../" in the path.
This is useful for backing up individual directories, 3rd party applications, or
directories outside the WordPress root. This can also be used for more granular
control when breaking up backups across multiple profiles for spreading server load
or working around timeout issues.
Global exclusions apply but default but exclusions may be set for
just this profile relative to this custom path manually or with the exclusion
picker.
"Full" and "Files" profiles now have three SMART exclusion options:
Auto-exclude Media Directory, Auto-exclude Themes Directory, Auto-exclude Plugins
Directory for making it easier to exclude directories which can be backed up by
other default Profile types.
SCREENSHOT:
http://image.prntscr.com/image/5a2b85de30ad4ab281a362630fc038c6.png
Backup profiles can now individually override the default global backup
mode (classic vs modern) on a per-profile basis.

STASH LIVE
Significant performance improvements, especially for larger sites.
Sites which in the past would run out of memory due to hosting limits are very
likely to now operate within server limits.
A troubleshooting scan is now regularly performed detecting common
problems and alerting the user and also providing solutions.
A new "Troubleshooting Scan" button to upper right of page of Stash
Live page is available for manually troubleshooting.
SCREENSHOT:
http://image.prntscr.com/image/b80166b92ce24f77986b4892150ee325.png
IMPORTBUDDY:
New "Search Engine Visibility" setting to Step 6 of restore process,
allowing you to either keep the setting as it was on the source site, turn on
search engine visibility, or turn it off. Useful for moving sites between
development, staging, and live locations.
SCREENSHOT:
http://image.prntscr.com/image/a10ff6ca440c4d6a8658eb3ed49c9e33.png
Added "Forgot password" feature which allows you to generate a new
password hash. This hash can then be placed inside the importbuddy.php file to make
it usable even if you forgot its password.

Javascript errors are now automatically detected and brought to the
user's attention as well as logged to aid in troubleshooting. Sometimes various
browser plugins running javascript fail causing importbuddy.php's javascript to
halt.
Improved look and feel with animated progress as well as highlights to
areas that require user attention.
importbuddy.php file size has been reduced for faster uploading during
restore process.
GENERAL
Directory exclusions (both global and profiles) support three new
variables: {media}, {theme}, and {plugins} to exclude those specific WordPress
directories.
Added advanced option to hide the BackupBuddy Status widget from the
dashboard, including the dashboard option to hide or display it.
Reduced plugin file size by removing unneeded remote destination
library files.
Backup and restore of databases containing foreign key constraints are
now fully supported and possible.
DROPBOX:
Added support for Google "Service Accounts" which allows for more than
50 tokens per account for users with large numbers of sites. Previously users with
more than 50 sites would hit a Google Account token limit.
