DDRescue-GUI 2.1.1

Despite the minor new version number, this release packs quite a lot of changes:

- Support for Windows.
- Dropped support and workarounds for Python 2.
- Compatible with wxPython 4.1.x.
- Much smaller macOS bundle size.

See the blog post at https://www.hamishmb.com/blog for all the details.

NOTE for Linux users:

GetDevInfo needs to be installed before you can install this - head over to https://www.hamishmb.com/html/downloads.php?program_name=getdevinfo or https://launchpad.net/getdevinfo/ to download it first.

Ubuntu 16.04 users also need to install wxpython4.0 from my PPA, either by adding the PPA (below), or downloading and manually installing wxpython4.0.

An alternate way to make this easier for Ubuntu users is to add my PPA to your system (see https://launchpad.net/~hamishmb/+archive/ubuntu/myppa).
