Veeam has never announced anything like this publicly... I am very sorry someone has misinformed you, especially if you made some plans based on that statement. I wish you remembered who it was, because it is against Veeam's core values to misinform our users - and we need to address this with the specific individual.

Just doesn't make any sense to a lot of us.
I think you are misunderstanding something here. Veeam Endpoint Backup did not have anything removed: Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0 is the next version of Veeam Endpoint Backup 1.5 (simply a name change) - so it has ALL the same functionality that version 1.5 had, and many NEW features added.
As far as the actual feature request, don't worry - we do realize the importance. We just needed to prioritize it among other, more important pending features. And so far, lack of advanced B&R integration did not inhibit Veeam Endpoint Backup growth - in fact, it became the single most popular Veeam product ever (over 1 million downloads in less than two years).
