    • Great performance enhancements for large backups (filetable denormalization)
    • Most queries are now consolidated in own file
  • NDMP
    • 2-Way backup
    • Direct backup to NDMP attached tape drive
    • DAR/DDAR: Efficient restore of single files
  • LanAddress feature
    • Direct backup to SD in LAN and WAN supported
  • Web UI with new features and more languages
    • Job progress bar
    • Customized job running (overriding defaults)
    • Job view contains list of used media
  • New supported distributions:
    • Debian 9
    • Fedora 25/26
    • Suse Leap 42.2/3.
    • Univention 4.2

The upgrade process may take some time, if you have a large filetable but it is worth the effort: backups in systems which large filetables are getting significantly faster. Please also beware that on the other side, the catalog will become somewhat bigger.
