Because of significant changes in both configuration and backup formats, we may not be able to provide the upgrade from BETA to GA build, and/or ability to restore from BETA backups in GA build.
We have a system we want to back up with VEB 1.5 to a DD Boost repository, but the backup chain length limit of 60 is a problem with forever incremental only on VEB 1.5. It seems like VEB 2.0 will let us create periodic active fulls, but the above note in the 2.0 beta docs has me worried that we might get stuck if we began to use it now.
Is the GA for 2.0 coming soon, as in days or a couple of weeks? Is it safe to assume that beta 2.0 backups will be restorable with GA 2.0 without any surprises, or not quite yet?
