I am pleased to announce the release of GNU ddrescue 1.2.

GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool.

The homepage is at

The sources can be dowloaded from or
from your favorite GNU mirror.

The md5sum is:
15a3842f95d20307bf59a887e20400f0  ddrescue-1.2.tar.bz2

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

Changes in version 1.2:

* A new option "--complete-only" that instructs ddrescue not to read new data beyond log file limits has been added.

* This version makes the interval at which the logfile is saved to disk depend on logfile size, improving efficiency for very large logfiles.

* A new argument parser that replaces "getopt_long" has been added.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden

Antonio Diaz, GNU ddrescue author and maintainer.
