A quick project update about next major Bacula-Web release

Dear all,

please find below some information about next Bacula-Web major release

New features

  • Main Dashboard look and feel reworked
  • Pools report page completely reworked (from scratch)
  • users authentication
    it's not cool to expose sensitive information, isn't ? ;)
  • Bacula catalogs overview
    A nice overview on all your configured Bacula directors
  • More clients reports with useful information
  • More cool reports
  • Major code improvement and optimisation
  • And many other cool stuffs ...

Version number

First major version will probably be call 8.0.0-alpha as I need from you to test all features and make sure nothing got broken. Especially the authentication feature (open a bug report if you find any security issue).

There's a link to documentation and roadmap at the bottom of this page.

Important note to developers

I'm spending a lot of time and energy to cleanup and reorganize the current code of Bacula-Web and work on the develop branch (on GitHub).
As a log of things are changing (or will change before first alpha version, I just want to remind you that you need to contact me before adding big new features or changing / add code in this branch.
For more details, see this document,

Any questions or remarks ? Get back to me by mail or using the Mantis bug tracker

I hope you'll enjoy as much as I'll do
