Installers updated
* There was an issue with the RPM installer. After fixing the issue, all of the installers have been updated for the current version 2.1.8. No program changes were made.

3 February 2019 Version 2.1.8 released

3 February 2019
Version 2.1.8 released
* Improved how the trimming phase handles major errors that stop the cloning. It now marks the rest of the block as non-scraped before stopping, so that when resuming it will move on to the next non-trimmed block, instead of resuming with the non-trimmed block that caused the error.
* Added 0.5 second to the soft reset time of the first read when cloning is started to allow the disk to perform the initial seek from parked, to prevent marking the first read as bad if using a small soft reset time.
* Fixed a bug where the phase logs were disabled if the log backup was disabled.
* Fixed a bug where the phase log setting was not saved to the project file.
* Added an additional message at the end of cloning as a catch all for any possible conditions that the program stops cloning without any other message.
* Fixed a bug where SCSI passthrough mode would still use ATA identify device data if it detected the device would accept the command.
* Added the Tools menu option Display Identify Results to display the results of the identify device command.
* Enable using ATA return to mark bad sectors is now turned on by default in the pro version.

16 January 2019 Version 2.1.7 released

16 January 2019
Version 2.1.7 released
* Fixed a missing error message for certain conditions when chosing the source device.
* Changed how the progress log is written, it is now written first as a .tmp file, and then renamed after it is successfully written. This helps keep the current log file one that is not partial or corrupt. The backup file is still written if not disabled.
* The domain file is no longer written if it is not being used.
* Fixed a bug with the Direct AHCI mode that could possibly cause issues with this mode not working on some computers.

2 January 2019 Version 2.1.6 released

2 January 2019
Version 2.1.6 released
* Fixed a bug where there was no message indicating an unsupported sector size in the free version. What would happen when the sector size was not 512, there was no indication of that, but then attempting to start cloning would result in a message that the drive size had changed, with no indication it was because of the unsupported sector size. Now there is a message when the sector size is not supported in the free version.
* Fixed a bug where SCSI passthrough (or auto passthrough with USB drives) could report that the drive sized changed when it did not.

22 December 2018 Version 2.1.5 released

22 December 2018
Version 2.1.5 released
* Fixed a bug that when using a relay to power cycle, having the relay setting enabled would cause the fill modes to fail.
* Added an initial reset in direct mode when choosing the source, to help in the case where the drive or port is locked up.
* Disabled the main window while processing the source, as it would allow you to do things while it was processing, which could cause fatal program errors.
* The virtual driver will now start automatically when the program is unable to get memory addresses in the 32 bit range when using direct IDE or AHCI modes. This also works for HDDSuperTool mode.
