Timeshift v18.2

Timeshift v18.2 is now available.

What’s New

Rsync Log Viewer

The rsync log viewer was updated to make it easier to use.

The Create log shows files which were created or changed since the previous snapshot.

The Restore log shows files which were created, deleted or changed on the system when the snapshot was restored. Restore log is created only after a snapshot is restored.

Restore Preview for Rsync Snapshots

Restoring an Rsync snapshot now displays the list of actions that will be executed on restore.

Review the list carefully and click Next to continue, or click Close to cancel.

Other Changes

  • Enable “View Log for Restore” menu item only if restore log exits
  • Appdata: Install to both /usr/share/appdata and /usr/share/metainfo for compatibility
  • Skip parsing log file after creating rsync snapshot
  • Disable deleted count label while creating snapshot as this info is not applicable while creating snapshots
  • Removed menu item for “Refresh Snapshot List” as it is not of any use.
  • Statusbar: Display status items in separate frames instead of nested frames
  • Restore: Allow compare action to be cancelled
  • Fixed: Unchanged files count was not displayed during create/restore
