17 November 2019
Version 2.2.4 released
* Fixed a bug where when using generic source device mode on newer kernels, the drive names contained escaped spaces (\0x20). Also fixed a buffer overflow bug that was caused by that extra name data, which would cause the "Error! The disk is security locked!" message.

10 November 2019
Version 2.2.3 released
* Fixed the Virtual Driver so it will work with Linux Kernel 5.0 and above. This is only for the Pro version, if you are using the free version there is no need to upgrade, as there are no other changes in this release.

27 October 2019
Version 2.2.2 released
* Skip resets will not cause a stop if the max skip size is set to less or equal to 16 times the min skip size. This is a way to prevent unwanted stopping when working with devices such as flash drives.
* Fixed a bug with getting SMART status where it would cause a program crash.
* Internal program activation improvement.
* Improved Direct AHCI and IDE motherboard support.

Version 2.2.1 released
* Added buss/device information and vendor/product id when listing the source drive in Direct USB mode. Also added information to the user manual about this.
* Increased the maximum cluster (buffer) size by 4x to 4MB for direct IDE and ACHI modes.

24 August 2019
Version 2.2.0 released
* Fixed a bug where the SCSI write would not always work.
* Fixed a bug with the Direct USB mode where the inquiry command would fail on some drives such as flash drives.
* Fixed some issues with SCSI passthrough related to inquiry and read capacity commands. Hopefully this does not break anything that was already working.

18 August 2019
Version 2.1.14 released
* Improved the drive lockup detection on USB connected ATA drives by adding a passthrough ATA identify command.
* Fixed a bug with the driver minimum cluster size in mode 3, where it would not always read the minimum size.
* Made the minimum driver cluster size also affect domain reads.
* Enabling SCSI write now uses /dev/sgX devices, with the hope of working in cases where /dev/sdX chosen devices do not work properly.
* Added the new Direct USB mode, along with updates to the user manual to reflect the new options and operation for the mode.

Version 2.1.13 released
* Fixed a bug with the timing byte in the log when using the pro version option to use ATA return data to mark bad sectors.
* Fixed a bug with some USB drives/adapters where bad reads were being reported as good.
* Fixed a bug where the read capacity command would fail on older SCSI drives.
* Fixed the generic source device mode, as it was broken and not working at all.
* Fixed a bug with the model name in generic source device mode.
* Changed some of the default timeouts to a higher value.

posted Apr 19, 2019, 5:16 PM by Scott Dwyer

19 April 2019
Version 2.1.10 released
* Improved SCSI write error detection.
* Changed the direct SCSI write timeout to 2 seconds, as 1 second could be considered too low, now that better write error detection has been implemented.
* Fixed a bug with direct AHCI for some motherboards, where it would not list any drives.
* Updated some information for the WD VSC scripts, mostly adding some additional warnings.
* Added the script wd_royl_write_mod, for writing modules to WD drives (use at your own risk).
