GNOME Commander is a fast and powerful graphical file manager. It has a "two-pane" interface in the tradition of Norton and Midnight Commander. It features drag'n'drop, GNOME MIME types, FTP, SFTP, and WebDAV using the GnomeVFS FTP module, SAMBA access, the ability to extend the context menu with entries to call external applications or scripts on the selected items, quick device access buttons with automatic mounting and unmounting, a fast file viewer for text and images, a history of recently accessed folders, and folder bookmarks.
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem with showing the correct number of remaining files and folders to be moved between two panes. Also, a fix for the internal viewer is applied, correcting text selection for lines with TAB characters. It also updates the several translations.
dd_rescue copies data from one file or block device to another. It is intended for error recovery, so by default, it doesn't abort on errors and doesn't truncate the output file. It uses large block sizes to quicken the copying, but falls back to small blocks upon encountering errors. It produces reports that allow you to keep track of bad blocks. dd_rescue features a number of optimizations, such as sparse block detection, preallocation, and Linux zerocopy (splice). It supports data protection by (multi-pass) overwriting of files or partitions with good and fast random numbers.
Release Notes: The MD5 plugin has been renamed to hash, reflecting that other cryptographic hashes such as sha1, sha256, sha224, sha512, sha384 are now supported as well. (The commandline syntax stays backwards-compatible.)
