Version 5.1.1 (Mojave, High Sierra)

Version 5.1 (Mojave, High Sierra)

- Fixed a problem which prevented Deja Vu from working as intended when backing up an entire system volume to a folder on another volume.

- Known Issue: Support for Mojave's Dark Mode is not entirely there yet. It will be further refined in a future release.
- Known Issue: Mojave seems to have broken Deja Vu's "Shown hidden items" checkbox used in open dialogs. As a workaround, the keyboard shortcut "⌘⇧." (Command-Shift-Period) may be used to toggle the visibility of hidden files.
