GNU ddrescue 1.22-rc3 is ready for testing here

The sha1sum is:
595985680186884a01946118486d0d1b9e9b2e80  ddrescue-1.22-rc3.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.

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:

* The new option '--reset-slow' has been added. It resets the slow reads counter every time the read rate reaches or surpasses '--min-read-rate'. With this option, ddrescue only exits after the read rate has remained below '--min-read-rate' for at least as many seconds as the argument given to '--max-slow-reads'.

Unless someone finds any other problem, this will be the final release candidate before 1.22 stable, which will be released in a week.

Antonio Diaz, GNU ddrescue author and maintainer.
