We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Akeeba Backup Core 3.1.b3 and Akeeba Backup Professional 3.1.b3 beta packages.
The installation packages for Akeeba Backup Core and Akeeba Backup Professional version 3.1.b2 (Beta) are now available for download from our new release system.
Furthermore, several users reported a database update issue caused by the host not giving adequate permissions to the database. Previously we suggested that you perform an uninstallation and reinstallation of the component. This is no longer necessary under the vast majority of server configurations. The installer will pick up this issue and attempt to work around it.
Our beta releases are thoroughly tested, but may still contain a few minor bugs. If you run across one, please report it on our support forum.
