Dkopp is a program for copying or backing up disk files to DVD. Full or
incremental backups can be made, with full or incremental DVD verification.
Dkopp uses a GUI to navigate through directories to select or de-select files
or directories at any level. Backup jobs can be saved for recurring use. New,
deleted, and updated files are handled automatically, without re-editing the
backup job. An incremental backup updates the same DVD used for a prior full
backup. Large backup jobs can be done using multiple DVDs. A GUI restore
function is also provided. Differences between disk and DVD can be reported in
total, by directory and by file.

* the menus and documentation were revised to indicate that BD as well as DVD media can be used
* setting the DVD/BD mount point was removed from backup job edit and restore job edit: this is now done only in the dialog to select the DVD/BD drive and overrides the default mount point
