Hi,
This year, next year, later?
That's sort of a tricky question to ask, given that less than two weeks left until the end of 2019 : )
The functionality is undergoing the final testing, and we plan to ship RTM code this year.

Thanks!

I'm pleased to see full support for BTRFS is coming along.

In the current form, wouldn't VAL support simple file backups files that reside on BTRFS volumes?
In my case I was looking to backup up /etc /root which are on BTRFS, and store them on local rotating USB drives.
I would have thought that as native linux commands such as cp, dd, tar can copy from btrfs, than maybe VAL may do so as well.

My logic is that I am not seeking BMR, or volume or server image backups that may require some deep OS integration - just file backups but utilising the block level diff capabilities.

Similarly some of our servers have NSS volumes, and I wanted backup these files also.
While this is an older thread, I wanted to note two key things with the VAL 3.0. Besides Btrfs support, there is also a new snapshot-less mode for file-level backups. This allows you to backup any currently mounted filesystem without needing specific fs support within VAL. NSS volumes can be backed up this way.
