GNU ddrescue 1.25-rc1 is ready for testing here

The sha256sum is:
9876736245cdf46639608881c652f1edd20519a41cef1d2af4c86ddb5286bf96 ddrescue-1.25-rc1.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find. This is planned to be the only release candidate before 1.25 stable.

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.

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

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

Changes in this version:

* In rescue mode, any non-finished subsector that is now found during the initial read of the mapfile will be joined to its corresponding sector (if it is also not finished), marking the whole sector with the less processed state, so as to make sure that sub-sector data will not be discarded from a succesful read during the rescue. (A subsector is a block smaller than sector size). (Reported by David Burton).

* The time needed to write the mapfile is now excluded from the mapfile save and sync intervals. (It seems that some mapfiles take 7 seconds to write). (Reported by David Burton).

* Large numbers in messages (like device sizes) are now printed in groups of 3 digits separated by underscore characters to make them more readable.
