Graphical User Interface

  • Add language support for kopiaUI (#3768) by Christoph Anderson

However on macOS it is nowhere to be seen…

Is it hidden somewhere?

Reading related PR it seems that it should be obvious drop down list somewhere:

But looks like it did not make to 0.17 for some reason… at least on macOS.

It was just a partial change - internal API to allow language selection, not complete yet. I’ll update the release notes. Language selector should be coming in the next release.

Amazing release, this made the UI super snappy! I’m only using Kopia for a couple of weeks now and absolutely love it. Thanks for the great work.

I’m getting the following error after installing this version, any ideas?

ERROR: error compacting single epoch: could not get latest single-compacted epoch: [lo: 8, hi: 1391], length: 1376: non-contiguous range
