GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors.

GNU Ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html

Changes in this version:

* The option "-K, --skip-size" has been extended to accept a maximum skip size and to disable skipping (-K 0).

* Speed has been improved when using complex domains with option '-m, --domain-logfile'.

  * Speed of logic operations in ddrescuelog has been improved.

  * Timestamps have been added to rescue, rates and reads logfiles.

* A status message describing the operation being performed and the current direction has been added to the rescue logfile.

* A single tab character is now used as field separator in reads logfile to reduce its size.

* Small tweak in rescue algorithm: Read largest non-split block first if logfile is larger than "--logfile-size".
