BakAndImgCD 25.0 released.

BakAndImgCD 25.0

BakAndImgCD is an official 4MLinux fork, which has been designed to perform the following two tasks: data backup and disk imaging. The output files (archives and images) can be optionally compressed and sent to a remote sever (using Ethernet, WiFi, PPP or PPPoE). 
This release is based on the 4MLinux Backup Scripts 25.0, which now make use of Zstandard (developed by Facebook) to compress backup archives and disk images (*). Midnight Commander has also been patched to be able to handle the "tar.zst" archives. Additionally, this is the first release that includes FSArchiver (which, by the way, is also able to use Zstandard for compressing its filesystem images).

(*) After making a few tests, I can confirm that the compression speed is really amazing.
