    DFSee version 11.5 has been released

    It is a minor but significant release, with several small features added
    and quite a few long standing minor bugs and annoyances fixed.

    DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
    filesystem and disk analysis, some file recovery and UNDELETE
    and smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks.
