Shasheen Ediriweera has announced the release of Rescuezilla 2.1, an updated version of the project’s easy-to-use disk imaging application compatible with Clonezilla. The key new feature of this version is the ability to easily mount and explore Clonezilla images to extract files: "Rescuezilla 2.1 provides key bug fixes, performance improvements and it also introduces the highly-requested ability to easily extract files from backup images. Key changes: added ‘Image Explorer’ (beta) to easily mount Partclone images and to extract files; accessing files from uncompressed images (created by Clonezilla’s Expert mode) is extremely fast even for very large images; both Clonezilla and Rescuezilla currently default to gzip compression, which requires decompressing a lot of data and makes mounting and exploring images over 50 GB too slow - a future release of Rescuezilla will change the default compression format so mounting large images is always fast and efficient… Read the rest of the changelog for more details. There are two images available for download - an edition based on Ubuntu 20.04 “Focal” and another based on Ubuntu 20.10 “Groovy” (the project recommends using the “Groovy” build): rescuezilla-2.1-64bit.groovy.iso (844MB, pkglist), rescuezilla-2.1-64bit.focal.iso (795MB).
