GNU ddrescue 1.19-rc1 is ready for testing here

The sha1sum is:
b7ad161f711d85202ff051fad35afb9fbcb4a1ae  ddrescue-1.19-rc1.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 "-P, --data-preview", which makes ddrescue show a few lines of the latest data read, has been added.

* The new option "--pause", which inserts a pause between passes, has been added.

  * The short name "-u" has been assigned to option "--unidirectional".

* During the retrying phase the direction is now reversed after each pass. Use "--unidirectional" to override.

Antonio Diaz, GNU ddrescue author and maintainer.
