DDRescue-GUI Update Released For macOS – Download it now!

An update to DDRescue-GUI has been released for macOS!

Hi all. Today I released an update to DDRescue-GUI for macOS to fix bugs and bring things up to date. Specifically:

  • Python 3.7.1 is now being used instead of 3.6.5, which includes numerous improvements.
  • wxPython 4.0.3 is now being used, which fixes various bugs in wxPython.
  • GetDevInfo 1.0.4┬áis now being used, which fixes a few crashes, especially when a non-English language is the system default language.
    • This also fixes crashes if there are drives with non-ASCII characters in the volume names.

It’s a fairly minor update, but it fixes a lot of bugs and improves security, so I recommend everyone use this new version. It can be downloaded from the nav bar at the top of this page, or from launchpad.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned for more posts, and, ahem, possibly some other, more exciting, news XD.
