ZeXtras Suite

General

ZeXtras CLI

  • No fixes yet - check after the next Beta version is released

ZxBackup

  • The "External Restore" operation has been optimized in order to reduct import times by reducing the operation's overhead: in optimal cpu/storage/memory conditions the improvement will be remarkable, but it should be noticeable even in sub-par situations - e.g. low I/O trhoughput or not enough iops.
