Dear g4u user community,
after some absence (job-related) and technical problems (building of
NetBSD failing for me from Mac OS X), I'm very happy to release a beta
version of g4u with some long-overdue changes. Those include being able to
backup/restore the MBR, which includes the partition table - needed when
recovering single partitions to a new disk. Also, the various commands
reading disks are now adjusted to not abort when a disk sector cannot be
used. Instead, the bad bytes are skipped and the rest of the disk is
recovered. Please give me feedback on this feature as I didn't have a bad
disk to test this! Other news include a command to wipe a disk by
completely overwriting it with 0-bytes (once). Last, command line editing
was enabled - finally!
Remember that this is a test release, so your feedback is wanted - either
to me in person, or to the g4u-help mailing list. Thanks!
