GNU ddrescue 1.19-pre4 is ready for testing here

The sha1sum is:
be50c627933a749baee797e7b5e331c105c1f955  ddrescue-1.19-pre4.tar.lz

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.

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 new option "-X, --exit-on-error", which makes ddrescue exit after the first read error is encountered during the copying phase, has been added. This is similar but different to "--timeout=0", and also similar but different to "--max-errors=+0".

* The new option "--cpass", which selects what passes to run during the copying phase, has been added.

* The new option "--unidirectional", which runs all passes in the same direction (forwards or backwards), has been added.

  * Ddrescue now skips on the first error during the copying phase.
