Beginning with version 3.0.0, yadm introduced a few major changes which may require you to adjust your configurations.
New name for yadm’s encrypted archive
yadm now supports openssl in addition to gpg for encryption. Along with this
change, the encrypted archive is now called
archive instead of the old name
New locations for data
yadm now uses the XDG Base Directory Specification to find its data.
For the majority of users, this means data will now be in
$HOME/.local/share/yadm/ instead of the old location of
This location is used for the local repository and encrypted archive.
The easiest way to adopt these new paths is to use the
yadm upgrade command.
This command will move your existing repo and encrypted archive to the new
directory. Upgrading will also re-initialize all submodules you have added
(otherwise they will be broken when the repo moves).
yadm.cygwin-copy is no longer supported
Use the option
YADM_COMPATIBILITY=1 is no longer supported
