[rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup] Release v2.0.0 - Version 2.0.0 - ready for the future

Hello everybody,

at last, it's here:

  Version 2.0.0 - ready for the future

Repository: rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup
<https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup> · Tag: v2.0.0
<https://github.com/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/tree/v2.0.0> · Commit:
· Released by: rdiff-backup-admin <https://github.com/rdiff-backup-admin>

This new release has been made truly ready for the future, with move to
GitHub <https://github.com/rdiff-backup>, Python 3 support, automated
CI/CD pipeline on Travis <https://travis-ci.org/rdiff-backup>,
availability on PyPI <https://pypi.org/project/rdiff-backup> and no
known regression bug compared to version 1.2.8/1.3.3.

We even found the time to add a few features for you (details in the
change log </rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/blob/v2.0.0/CHANGELOG>):

  * sparse files handling has become more efficient on file systems
    which support it
  * more compressed file formats are kept as-is
  * have a look at the |--no-fsync| option to improve speed of backup
    (at the slight risk of data loss)
  * reproducible builds are possible
  * verbosity can be set via environment variable |RDIFF_BACKUP_VERBOSITY|

On the down side, we have to say that due to the many changes,
rdiff-backup 2.x can't communicate with older versions 1.x in
client-server mode (/but/ the repository formats remain compatible), so
you'll need to upgrade client and server at once.

Which brings us to the installation, described in details in the read me
</rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/blob/v2.0.0/README.md>, but here the quick

  * Linux, trust on your distro to provide the latest version of
    rdiff-backup "soon-ish"
      o On Fedora/CentOS/RHEL, you may use Frank's COPR repo

      o On Ubuntu, you may use Otto's PPA repo

  * Windows, download rdiff-backup-2.0.0.win32exe.zip from here
    and unpack it somewhere in your |PATH|.
  * Any supported Platform, use |pip install rdiff-backup| (or download
    and install the proper asset from here

If you encounter issues, contact us on the rdiff-backup-users mailing
list <https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/rdiff-backup-users>
and/or report an issue

Happy backup, and remember: /no/ backup, /no/ pity!

KR, Eric
