    Release Notes: This release permits the use of -l to limit the size of PAR2 files and -c to specify the exact number of recover blocks to create. You can also use -v and -q for more verbose or quieter operation. 64-bit file systems are now supported. The file handling code was adjusted so that it no longer opens large numbers of files simultaneously.

      Release Notes: The PAR2 specification has many advantages over PAR1. For instance, there is no relationship between the size of the data files and the size of the PAR files, damaged files can be repaired, damaged PAR files will still be usable, and PAR files can be generated from a single source file without the need to split it.
