Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

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.

Changes in this version:

  * A bug has been fixed that sometimes marked the wrong block as non-scraped when trimming in reverse direction.
Thanks to Arthur Lesuisse for reporting this.

Unless another bug appears, this is the last release candidate before 1.23 stable.
