DDRescue-GUI 1.7.1

Note: This version is not compatible with ddrescue 1.23, but v1.7.2 has been released to address that.

UPDATE 3/1/2018: A security fix has been issued for this package. Only people who have been running the program on Wayland have been affected. After the program was shut, GUI applications could continue to be run as root, because the workaround wasn't being disabled properly until a reboot had occurred. See my corresponding blog post at www.errormania.altervista.org for all the details.

UPDATE 15/11/2017: Confirmed working on Fedora 27.

UPDATE 25/10/2017: Confirmed working with MacOS High Sierra (10.13). I had to fix the packages because of a bug with Wayland support. Hence, please download the new files if you use Fedora or Ubuntu 17.10. I still can't test on Fedora 27 because it isn't stable enough yet, but I will do it as soon as I can.

UPDATE 14/9/2017: The packages are confirmed working with Ubuntu 17.10 and macOS 10.13 beta. I can't test with Fedora 27 yet, but I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE 12/7/2017: The Fedora packages have been confirmed to work with Fedora 26 :)

This release fixes a bug when running with ddrescue v1.22. Other than that, it is identical to v1.7.

For all the details about v1.7, see my blog post at http://hamishmb.altervista.org/blog.

You can also download this program from my website at http://www.hamishmb.altervista.org/html/Downloads/ddrescue-gui.php.

I hope you enjoy using this program, and if so please check out my other projects, WxFixBoot, Stroodlr, and Wine Autostart.
