What’s New


There’s a new PPA available for Timeshift. This is a dedicated PPA that contains packages only for Timeshift.

The previous PPA ppa:teejee2008/ppa continues to be available, for people who are still using it.

/var/cache/apt/archives/* /var/cache/pacman/pkg/* /var/cache/yum/* /var/cache/dnf/* /var/cache/eopkg/* /var/cache/xbps/* /var/cache/zypp/* /var/cache/edb/*

Navigation buttons

The spacing was adjusted for navigation buttons at bottom of the Backup/Delete/Restore/Wizard windows.
