I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ddrescue 1.14.

GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool.

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

The sources can be downloaded from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/ddrescue/ http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/ddrescue/ or from your favorite GNU mirror.

This version is also available in lzip format. If your distro doesn't yet distribute the lzip program, you can download it from http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html

The md5sums are:
d6f6cc63df9ad352bc6e43b65c975af5  ddrescue-1.14.tar.gz
122d628c884a170659ac4c227cc484bc  ddrescue-1.14.tar.lz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending ".sig" to the URL.

Changes in version 1.14:

* The new option "-R, --reverse", which reverses direction of copy operations, has been added.

* The new option "-E, --max-error-rate", which stops ddrescue when the error size grows too fast (in Bytes/s), has been added.

* The syntax of option "--max-errors" has been extended to specify new errors (--max-errors=+N).

  * The short name of option "--retrim" has been changed to "-M".

  * A spurious warning about "preallocation not available" has been fixed.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden

If you are packaging ddrescue for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems[1][2]. Thanks.
