GetDevInfo 1.0.4

This is a minor new version that fixes some serious bugs causing crashes when handling non-ASCII characters. As DDRescue-GUI depends on this module, it fixes crashes in DDRescue-GUI as well. Other than that, there are improved unit tests, much better test coverage, and a very minor bug has been fixed that causes issues with the current development version of wxfixboot (not released - git only).

See the summary page for more details on the project. This is also available on gitlab ( and the Python Package Index (
