Re: [Duplicity-announce] Duplicity 0.8.21 Released

Problem solved.  Finally managed to figure it out.  0.8.21.postN is a valid release name.  After much fiddling around there is now a one-time only post release called 0.8.21.post7 (yes, it took that much trial and terror).  This has no changes other than to setup.py which have now been backed out.  Post releases are a real PITA, but at least anyone upgrading using pypi normally will upgrade to 0.8.21.  Note this only exists on pypi and only because I needed to do a workaround to overcome their fascist rules.  The instructions given previously will also give you what you want.

I had a problem on PyPi in that I deleted version 0.8.21, intending to replace it.  PyPi does not allow you to reuse a name and in my process 0.8.22 was an impossible fix for many reasons.

For now, use pip3 install -U https://launchpad.net/duplicity/0.8-series/0.8.21/+download/duplicity-0.8.21.tar.gz since that's all that PyPi has anyway.

Or do a one time pip3 install -U --pre duplicity which will pick up 0.8.22.dev2 (only minor changes).

You can see the full details of the changes in GitLab and Launchpad milestone pages and CHANGELOG.

There are multiple options both stable and latest:
The pip3 stable install will be delayed until I resolve a problem on pypi.  Use latest for now.

Note 1: UNINSTALL duplicity first if it was installed from a different source.
Note 2: Launchpad PPAs contain builds for Bionic 18.04, Focal 20.04,  Hirsute 20.10, Impish 21.04, and Jammy 21.10.
Note 3: Xenial 16.04 works with Snap and Pip installs, but cannot be built under Launchpad PPAs at the moment.
