We are looking forward for your feedback and bugreports, in order to help us to publish a broadly tested 15.2 major release soon.

No need of separate db connection, much cleaner architecture and easier setup.
Ported command line utilities like bscan, bwild, bregex
Thanks to a sponsored development from the payment transaction provider cardtech, we support secure erase of recycled storage-files and spool files for compliance reasons
LDAP Plugin to backup LDAP directories which allows single object restore and accurate backup
New Operating Systems supported:
Debian 8, including Systemd support

Their FAQ says that Bacula went partially closed and Bareos was an attempt for a fully open alternative. This is yet another great example of how pure open source protects projects from vendors going bad.
Well I'm at the login screen, and its doesn't allow me to actually sign in.
It's not presenting an error message or anything, just takes sits at the login screen. . .
Might have found it, the user you create during installation isn't the web gui user. . .
It has a default user called "user1", doing some testing.
So after you have postgres installed, you can just install the package for your distro.
From that, you run a few commands (of course these are strewn all about) and then reload the config (or reboot the host) and you can sign in.
