19 November 2017
Version 1.12 released.
Fixed a bug with the cluster size where if changed manually it would revert back to default after starting to clone. Fixed a bug in the advanced settings with "Do not create backup log" and "Force mounted", as they were flipped in part of the code. Added size in GB to display output of the GUI. Added timer settings for direct mode. Added generic modes so a block device or image file can be used as a source. Made many tweaks to direct mode to make it work better. Made many other small program tweaks to improve operation. All of the improvements were for the GUI mode. The command line mode is no longer being tested and will be removed soon.

2 September 2017
Version 1.11.gui.beta released.
Removed some code from the public release versions that was causing a library error on some systems. The code was for performing language translation, which is not needed by anyone but me when building it. I am not planning on updating the live cd as it does not have the error.

26 August 2017
Version 1.10_gui_beta released.
Added an extra device check after a major error is detected to see if the device is still faulted or not, and if not then continue with the current operation. Added advanced settings to the GUI version, to complete the available options that were command line. Added the ability to directly process CHS for older drives that do not support LBA. Added the ability to to control the OS write buffer, due to reports of slow cloning speeds. Removed the 10% limit on direct IDE PIO mode in the free version since it is so slow anyway.

29 June 2017 Version 1.9_gui_beta released.

29 June 2017
Version 1.9_gui_beta released.
Added language packs. You can now pick a language at startup. These language packs are created using Google Translate. While Google Translate is usually good at translating, it is almost certain that some translations will have errors. Hopefully none of the errors are major enough to cause issues with use. The program will now start in GUI mode if no command line options are used. The option --command-line has been added to bypass auto starting in GUI mode. Removed the annoying exit box popup when exiting the GUI.

10 June 2017 Uploaded Fixed Installers
The DEB (and possibly RPM) installer was not working due to a non-conforming character in the version number. This has been corrected and the installers have been replaced with working ones in the download section. No other program changes were made, only the installers have been modified and re-uploaded.

29 May 2017
Version 1.8_gui_beta released.
Added the option --reset-log, to allow resetting all status except for finished, to allow starting over without loosing finished blocks. Added the option --gui to start the program in GUI mode. The GUI is still considered beta and needs a bit more work, but it should be fully functional for cloning purposes. Enjoy!

4 March 2017 Version 1.7 released.

4 March 2017
Version 1.7 released.
Fixed the display output so that when using a domain file, it will show the percent based on the domain and not whole disk, and the time remaining also now reflects this. Fixed the time remaining when performing retries. Improved the display to show the retry information when performing retries. If the progress logfile has errors of same status and that is the only type of error, it is automatically repaired as there is no integrity loss.

8 February 2017
Version 1.6.1 released.
Fixed a bug with the progress log file where non-data lines could be written without the leading # character. This would cause an error when trying to resume a recovery.

29 January 2017 Version 1.6 released.

29 January 2017
Version 1.6 released.
Fixed a bug where under some conditions the ata return data was not accurate, due to a non-standard sense descriptor. In these cases there is no ata return data, so it is now zeroed out, and only the scsi sense data is used. Fixed a bug where some error output was not seen, making it difficult to know why the program exited. Improved some error output to improve understanding if it is the source or destination that has the error. Added the option --exit-slow-time so that the time can be controlled before exiting for slow reading.
