Drop Python 2 support

With this major release, we are officially dropping support for Python2. We have kept it long enough and similar to rdiff-backup we need to move forward. Removing all the Python2 code should speed up our development and reduce the maintenance time. If you still want to install Rdiffweb on Python2.7, you need to stick with v1.x.

Test our new Debian package for Bullseye !

This version marks the official support of a Debian package for Bullseye ! We've worked hard in collaboration with Bern University of Applied Sciences to create a viable package for the next Debian version. A big thanks to Daniel Baumann for all his contributions and recommendations.

The new package is not yet available in Debian official repository. We are working on it. You may get the packages from our private APT repository:

curl -L https://www.ikus-soft.com/archive/rdiffweb/public.key | apt-key add - 
echo "deb https://nexus.ikus-soft.com/repository/apt-release-bullseye/ bullseye main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rdiffweb.list
apt update
apt install rdiffweb

Changes in this release:

For Debian packaging compliance:

Don't wait ! Install the latest version of Rdiffweb.
