Timeshift RSYNC v1.7 and Timeshift BTRFS v1.1 are now available.
New Commandline Options
Command line options have been updated. New options were added for restoring and deleting snapshots from the command line.
timeshift --restore #interactive timeshift --restore --snapshot "2015-01-21_19-28-43" --backup-device /dev/sda2 --target-device /dev/sda1 --skip-grub timeshift --delete #interactive timeshift --delete --snapshot "2015-01-21_19-28-43" timeshift --delete-all #completely remove all snapshots
Support for LUKS encrypted partitions
LUKS-encrypted partitions can now be used for both backup and restore. Timeshift will prompt for the password and unlock the device so that snapshots can be saved on the device. If your system is installed on a LUKS-encrypted partition then you can now restore snapshots both online (from running system) and offline (from another system / LiveCD).
Binaries for some shared libraries like libgee and libudev have been included in the installer. Timeshift can now be installed on the PartedMagic and Ubuntu LiveCD without an internet connection. Simply download and execute the installer and it will install all required files.
Run the following command from a terminal to install on Live CD:
./timeshift-latest-i386.run #32-bit ./timeshift-latest-amd64.run #64-bit
Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04 and 14.10 users can install from PPA:
