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

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.Gomez wrote: ↑Dec 07, 2018 4:59 pmI'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.
