Over at the Linuxmint blog it has been posted that th mint backup tool has been rewritten from scratch by iKey. Which this is good news in two ways one, its a featured program by a actual user of mint. Two, iKey is a personal friend of mine. Pretty cool to see him get up like this. Didn’t know he was that advance in programming. anyways heres text directly from the blog:

Linux Mint 9 will feature a brand new version of mintBackup, the “Backup Tool”, rewritten from scratch by a newcomer in the development team, somebody people on the IRC and the forums know quite well: Ikey.

Good job iKey.
