Déjà Vu 4.8.9 (Sierra and El Capitan)
  • Addresses a problem which prevented the DV status menu item from updating or quitting when performing longer backups.
  • The 'Safety Net Archives' folder was not being properly maintained when it was located on an Auto-Connected volume.
  • A few other minor fixes and improvements.

Déjà Vu 4.8.8 (Sierra and El Capitan)
  • Worked around an apparent bug in El Capitan which caused Deja Vu to crash System Preferences upon quitting.

Déjà Vu 4.8.7 (Sierra and El Capitan)
  • Fixed System Preferences crashing in certain cases.
  • Fixed Auto-Connect not working properly.

Déjà Vu 4.8.6 (Sierra and El Capitan)
  • Sierra compatibility

Déjà Vu 4.8.5 (El Capitan and Yosemite)
  • El Capitan compatibility

Déjà Vu 4.8.4 (Yosemite and Mavericks)
  • Addresses an issue which caused the Deja Vu preference pane to become slow and unresponsive for certain users.

Déjà Vu 4.8.3 (Yosemite and Mavericks)
  • Yosemite compatibility

Déjà Vu 4.8.2 (Mavericks and Mountain Lion)
  • Updated German localization.
  • Fixed some text being truncated in other localizations.

Déjà Vu 4.8.1 (Mavericks)
  • Addresses a problem which, for certain people, was preventing the normal and successful termination of their backups.

Déjà Vu 4.8 (Mavericks and Mountain Lion)
  • Mavericks compatibility
  • The volume containing the Safety Net Archives folder is now also checked for low disk space.
  • Fixed a problem which affected people backing up between two SMB volumes.

Déjà Vu 4.7 (Mountain Lion)
  • Added an option to be warned when disk space is low on any backup disk. ("Low" means that the disk is more than 90% full.) See the Options > Notifications tab.
  • Auto-Connect is now usable with servers that do not require a password.
  • Updated French localization.

Déjà Vu 4.6 (Mountain Lion)
  • In the list of backup items, selecting an existing folder or disk in any popup menu will now open that item in the Finder if possible. This was done mainly to improve the accessibility of files in the backup destination, but it will work with source folders as well.
  • Ensure that the system stays awake while a backup is being performed. This was necessary due to Mountain Lion's more aggressive energy saver mode.
  • Avoid backup collisions. For example, if a daily backup begins and detects another daily backup already in progress, then it will silently exit. This will become more important in a future release.
  • Fixed various text encoding problems which affected people who were trying to backup folders with names in certain non-Roman languages like Hebrew. (Other languages were likely also affected.) Fixed in Deja Vu for Lion and Deja Vu for Snow Leopard as well.

Déjà Vu 4.5 (Mountain Lion)
  • Added a "History" button to the log sheet which will give you an overview of all of your Deja Vu backups from now on.
  • Fixed a problem related to using Auto-Connect with remote user names or volume names containing spaces.

Déjà Vu 4.4 (Mountain Lion)
  • You can now use the Finder to rename or move your source and destination folders as found in the main list of backup items and Deja Vu should still be able to find them, provided that they are located on a Mac-formatted disk and that they remain on the same disk if you move them. This will also work if you rename a Mac-formatted disk that is part of your backup.
  • Show proper document icons in the exclusions table whenever possible.
  • Removed 'Edit Custom' button from the Exclusions tab and updated documentation.
  • Fixed status menu item crash when notification prefs set to not play any sound.
  • Fine-tuned the backup engine so that fewer errors should occur, particularly when backing up over a network and when backing up volumes which are set to ignore ownership.
  • Ignore any file copying errors that occur within ~/Library/Mobile Documents.

Déjà Vu 4.3 (Mountain Lion)
  • Exclusions may now be added in the new 'Exclusions' tab in Deja Vu's options. Read the Deja Vu help for more details. (Click the "?" button next to "Options".)
  • Added a "Show hidden items" checkbox to choose file/folder dialogs.
  • The main Deja Vu window will now also show the percentage complete when "Show backup progress" is selected.
  • Made changes which should help anyone who experienced problems related to folder name encodings.
  • Fixed "Prompt before scheduled backups" which had been broken by Mountain Lion.
  • Fixed a problem which caused Deja Vu to be erroneously opened when a backup finished.
  • Fixed problem with Swedish localization which rendered the Options sheet unusable.
  • Fixed uninstaller which had been broken by Mountain Lion.

Déjà Vu 4.2 (Mountain Lion)
  • Signed for Gatekeeper.
  • Workaround for Mountain Lion breaking scheduled Auto-Connect backups to AFP servers.
  • Make sure Safety Net archived files are owned by user, not root.
  • Replace any spaces in Auto-Connect 'Volume' field with '%20'.
  • Ignore any file copying errors that occur within '/private/var/spool' or '/Library/Server/Mail/Data/spool' directories.
  • Date formats with four-digit years were being truncated on the "View Log" buttons.

Déjà Vu 4.1.1 (Lion)
  • General fixes and improvements for remote backups
  • Minor Auto-Connect improvements
  • We now enable ownership on a given destination volume only if ownership is currently enabled on the corresponding source volume.
  • Fixed a regression which was causing ownership to be enabled more than once per volume.
  • Disable UI when a backup is in progress.

Déjà Vu 4.1 (Lion)
  • We now dynamically adjust which file attributes are preserved based on what is supported by the given filesystems.
  • You can now backup to a combination of local and remote volumes within the same backup. The "Remote backup" option has been removed. It is now auto-detected.
  • Redesigned the General options tab to make all options visible at a glance. Safety Net is now included in the General tab, and the Safety Net tab has been removed.
  • Added a new option in the General tab to "Repair disk integrity". Local disks will be repaired if possible before the backup begins. (The startup disk can only be verified while it is running.) Be aware that when verifying the startup disk, your computer may become slow and unresponsive for a few minutes until the verification process finishes.
  • Auto-Connect will now accept just a server name (like "servername.local") or an IP address in the "Server" field. AFP is used if no protocol is specified.
  • Auto-Connect will now accept long user names ("Andy Hertzfeld") or short user names ("andy") in the "Name" field.
  • Fix for Auto-Connect "Connect" button crashing System Preferences if the remote volume name contained spaces.
  • Certain errors (i.e. "disk unavailable") were being missed because the backup script was exiting before the status menu item was being launched.
  • Updated Italian localization.
  • Updated English documentation.

Déjà Vu 4.0 (Lion)
  • This is a major upgrade which provides compatibility with Mac OS X Lion. Although there are few visible changes in this release, we have completely replaced Deja Vu's backup "engine" for increased speed and fidelity, and to lay a foundation for future improvements.
  • The "View Log" buttons will now show only a summary and a list of errors if any were detected. A "Show Details" button has been added to the log sheet which will open the full log in Console.
  • When "Show Details" is selected from the Deja Vu menu bar icon while a backup is in progress, we now explicitly open Console rather than trust the system to do it.
  • If you are using Auto-Connect, you may need to re-enter your server password in Options > Auto-Connect.
  • Updated documentation.
