BackupPC version 2.0.0 has been released on SourceForge, see
http://backuppc.sourceforge.net.  New features include support
for rsync/rsyncd and internationalization of the CGI interface
(including English, French, Spanish and German).

BackupPC a high-performance perl-based package for backing up linux,
unix or WinXX PCs and laptops to a server's disk.  BackupPC is highly
configurable and easy to install and maintain.  SMB (via smbclient),
tar over rsh/ssh or rsync/rsyncd are used to extract client data.

Given the ever decreasing cost of disks and raid systems, it is now
practical and cost effective to backup a large number of machines onto
a server's local disk or network storage.  This is what BackupPC does.

Key features are pooling of identical files (big savings in server disk
space), compression, and a comprehensive CGI interface that allows users
to browse backups and restore files.

BackupPC is free software distributed under a GNU GPL license.
BackupPC runs on linux/unix/freenix servers, and has been tested
on linux, unix, Win95, Win98, Win2000, WinXP and Mac OSX clients.
