Baculum – Current and upcoming features

1. Baculum Ubuntu/Debian packages

Preparing Baculum to use from bacula-gui source archive requires going
through a few steps as manual web server configuration, PHP installation
with dependencies, setting up authentication to Baculum. These actions
may need a few attempts and may take a little time.

For this reason, we have prepared Baculum binary packages for
Ubuntu/Debian distributions. Packages are available in Lauchpad.net
service here:

https://launchpad.net/~ganiuszka/+archive/ubuntu/baculum

Please note that it is an unofficial repository nevertheless the repository
is maintained by Baculum author.

2. Baculum online demo version
