We've just released version 3.2 of CrashPlan and CrashPlan PRO.

By popular request, we've added these great new features -

  • Automatically pause backups when running on selected networks; to exclude a 3g hotspot, for example. (Mac and Windows)
  • Automatically pause backups when battery charge reaches a certain level (Mac and Windows).
  • Mac menu bar item to control and monitor your backup (Mac; Windows already had this functionality)
  • Support for linux 3.x kernels

For more details, see the release notes here -

Since automatically updating to 3.2 an hour ago, I have been unable to connect to Crashplan Central. Rebooting both the computer and the app, pausing and restarting, etc, seem to make no difference. I'm getting a perpetual "waiting for connection".

Since my automatic update earlier today, I can connect OK to Crashplan Central from all PCs, but none of them want to back up to each other over the Internet - just a perpetual "waiting for connection" even though the IP address is shown (albeit without the port number, which may be significant).
