Is Duplicacy still under development?

I liked the software (the back end anyway) and I bought a multi-year subscription but there are serious issues with the web interface and there have been no updates in months. Is this software still being developed or has it been abandoned?

Yes, of course. In fact I’ll release the next update in a couple of weeks.

What specific serious issues are you experiencing? Can you share links or post about them if not reported before so that I can fix them in the next update?

I just renewed my subscriptions. I also hope very much for a further development.

It’s not just about “serious issues”, but mostly about making a GUI ready for not so computer-savvy users. Duplicacy is great, but you still need to be quite computer-savy to use it.

For me, Duplicacy Web hasn’t had many bugs but it seems to very basic in functionality since its inception. It would be cool if advanced and useful features like searching through all snapshots for a file (or even adding regexes as well) or even sorting in the restore tab.

And on Windows when you hit the stop button on the Web UI, it force closes the duplicacy backup process instead of gracefully shutting it down, so it doesn’t save the state of the upload that happens if it closed using the shortcut on CLI, which then makes the next backup longer because it verifies all of the files it already uploaded before.

The old native GUI has been deprecated – it won’t be worked on unless there is a major bug. Did you get a chance to try the new web GUI?

That’s the one I’m currently one. The Web UI version.

I’ve been watching the progress but many feature requests haven’t made it into updates.
Do you like these feature requests?

You can actually pause/disable a schedule by unticking all the day checkboxes.

All other feature requests are related to the restore workflow. I mentioned somewhere in this forum that I have a plan to rework the restore UI – the main part is to cache the results of list commands, so for a revision that has been listed before the file list can be quickly loaded from the cache. The cache can be a database to facilitate search, history, diff, etc.
