While this addon really has no issues with this announcement. I felt it would probably be wise to mention it in this update. If you are having issues related to the announcement, you can simply add --default-character-set=utf8mb4 to the "MySQL options > Custom dump options" field in the options for this addon. I have also made this the default setting for this field for future installers.
This addon will no longer re-open your board after running a backup, if your board was closed originally. It will retain the open/close setting of your board at the time the backup began.
Added a few explanations for the Amazon S3 fields in the options to help people figure it out.
Added an option to automatically delete older backups based on a numerical retention limit.
Added the ability to do automatic remote uploads via FTP to another server after backup. This process happens AFTER the forums have been re-opened, so it should not add any extra download to your website. Only backup files themselves are uploaded; not any log files. These remote uploads are not subject to the new retention limit option.
