We have released Bacula Version 5.0.3 to Source Forge

This 5.0.3 version is significant bug fix update to version 5.0.2.
It includes new code and some new features.
There is no database change since prior versions of 5.0.

Note, if you are running 5.0.0, read the 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 release notes below in
the 5.0.1 release section.  Important!!!

Compatibility:
————–
As always, both the Director and Storage daemon must be upgraded at
the same time.

Older 5.0.x and 3.0.x File Daemons are compatible with the 5.0.3
Director and Storage daemons. There should be no need to upgrade older File
Daemons.

Changes and New Features:
– If a VSS (Windows) snapshot fails, the whole Job is failed, previously
it printed a warning message and continued.
– New editing codes %b = Job Bytes and %f = Job Files for runscripts
– Any non-Bacula project plugins (i.e. third party plugins)
must be upgraded to specify AGPLv3 in place of the GPLv2 used previously
for the PLUGIN_LICENSE.
– The bat Media page text columns can be sorted by clicking on the column.
– If possible, the SD will automatically update the catalog Volume size if
it does not match the Volume size. The mismatch between the Volume sizes
typically occurs when the FD has a comm line drop or the FD crashes.
