With extensive refactoring in the code to display logs extracts, this update should be faster and require less memory on all supported versions of macOS.
How can it take over 5 hours to back up 79 GB of files to a network share? That’s an average transfer rate of 4 MB/s, probably slower than your Internet connection.
Provided it doesn’t have to back up large folders containing many small files, Time Machine backing up to APFS on a network share works well.
The first full backup is performed as a manual backup, and largely occurs in file-by-file copying from source to the backup store. It is more efficient than to HFS+, but differences could be less than 10%.
Addresses problems with time formatting, so you should now be able to use Ulbow with a Buddhist calendar, 12-hour clock, set to summer time in Mongolia.

Before Apple added T2 chips to Intel Macs, external boot disks were valuable for many users. How has that fared since?
A summary of the known benefits and current limitations of Time Machine backups to APFS, with links to more detailed accounts.
When a “fixed” formatting string proves anything but fixed, then breaks without warning or even mention in a release note.
Does Big Sur’s Time Machine preserve sparse files and clones when backing up to APFS volumes?
