   * Automatically create timeline of snapshots
   * Show and revert changes between snapshots
   * Works with btrfs, ext4 and thin-provisioned LVM volumes
   * Supports Access Control Lists and Extended Attributes
   * Automatic cleanup of old snapshots
   * Command line interface
   * D-Bus interface
   * PAM module to create snapshots during login and logout (libpam-snapper)
