Changes in version 1.15:

  * The new option "-a, --min-read-rate" has been added.

  * The new option "-I, --verify-input-size" has been added.

  * The new option "-x, --extend-outfile" has been added.

* Ddrescue now verifies that infile, outfile and logfile are all different.

  * Non-tried blocks are now read aligned to cluster-size sectors.

  * The "split or skip" algorithm of the split pass has been improved.

* A spurious warning about "-D" being ignored in fill mode has been removed.

* Ddrescuelog, a tool for manipulation, display, conversion, comparison and testing of ddrescue logfiles, has been added.

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. Thanks.
