- Minarca Release v3.4.0 – Improvements Under The Hood
This release includes major modifications to Minarca, however the
changes are not visible to the users. The changes are hidden under the
hood and will help us deliver a stable product with a solid foundation.
The persistent layer has been rebuilt, again. Over the years, the
persistent layer of Minarca has seen a couple of iterations; and, with
each iteration we have improved stability and increased flexibility.
With these latest tweaks, the persistent layer will provide even better
performance that results in faster web page loading for the end-users.
On the client side, to avoid interrupting the backup, we included a
feature to inhibit the computer from going into sleep mode.
