  • Updated integrated restoration engine (Pro release), fixing some bugs on servers using open_basedir restrictions and some minor bugs on some servers when using the FTP mode.

  • Added [YEAR], [MONTH] and [DAY] variables for use in archive filenames

  • Single package installation & upgrade for Joomla! 1.5 and 1.6

  • Automatically change media/com_akeeba permissions to make sure the Javascript and media will load , making installation and taking your first backup much easier on some server environments.

  • Added [WEEK], [WEEKDAY] variables for the description, directory names and filenames
