Congratulations on taking over maintenance, and I hope development, of Timeshift.

Clem will shine up all of the buttons and icons and, TimeShift will look like a new lamborghini ready to hit the road. :)

Well I hope any improvements go beyond mere cosmetic appearance.

from the list of improvements they want to bring they are aiming to remove the delay for the summary/warning screen listing volumes to recover after the dry run that takes an age to appear. that would be great

not so great - there's also mention of removing btrfs but I hope that is abandoned because even now there's a ticket open on linuxmint github about addressing btrfs support issues for Fedora. It wouldn't just affect Fedora users, some of us have multiple distributions installed and wish to be able to boot from a single ISO when necessary to restore our systems. Linux Mint would be my go to but evidently I'd have to keep an existing ISO handy just in case btrfs support does indeed get removed going forwards in Timeshift on either Mint 21.X or Mint 22 ISO

Loss of BTRFS support would make me stop using TimeShift. Too bad since it's saved me a lot of grief when I've messed up and needed a rollback.

+1 Eph

With the B-Tree File System (BTRFS) maturation, it will probably become the standard file system for desktop/laptop users. I agree it should be left in TimeShift.
