GParted 1.0.0 was released on May 29, 2019.

This release of GParted includes a significant undertaking to migrate the code base from gtkmm2 to gtkmm3 (our GTK3 port).  Thanks go to Luca Bacci and Mike Fleetwood for making this happen.

With this major change we bump up the major version number.  This 1.0.0 release is not meant to indicate that GParted is more stable or less stable than before.  Instead it means that GParted now requires gtkmm3 instead of gtkmm2.  Note that several other dependencies have changed as well.

As with our other releases, this one also includes several enhancements, bug fixes and language translation updates.

Key changes in this release include:

  • Port to Gtkmm 3

  • Port to GNOME 3 yelp-tools documentation infrastructure

  • Enable online resizing of extended partitions

  • Add F2FS support for read disk usage, grow, and check

  • Fix slow refreshing of NTFS file systems

GParted 0.30.0 was released on October 10, 2017.

This release of GParted includes an interim fix to enable running GParted as root under Wayland in addition to other bug fixes and language translation updates.

ATTENTION PACKAGERS:

The installation location of the gparted script has changed and package scripts calling pkexec can be dropped.

This release provides an interim workaround to allow GParted to run under Wayland by using xhost to grant and revoke root access to the X11 display.  This must be enabled while building the software with:

./configure --enable-xhost-root

Pkexec from polkit has been made the first choice graphical SU program as all the desktops have settled on using polkit as the privileged access mechanism.  See "Installing polkit's Action File" section in the README file for when an additional installation step may be needed.

Also changed is that execution of the graphical SU program has been moved from gparted.desktop to the gparted shell wrapper.  Therefore gparted can be run either by an unprivileged user or by root and as such is installed in $prefix/bin rather than $prefix/sbin.  This additionally means distributions can drop their pkexec scripts used to launch gparted.

Key changes in this release include:

  • Interim fix for GParted fails to run as root under Wayland

  • Fix reading Unicode labels when no FS specific tools available

  • Safely quote and escape external programs arguments

This release adds partial read-write support for LUKS encrypted file systems.  GParted can't create, open or close LUKS encryption volumes; however it can copy, resize and manipulate file systems inside open LUKS volumes and move closed LUKS volumes.  (Resizing requires Linux kernel >= 3.6 and libparted >= 3.2 for online partition resizing).

Also included are bug fixes and language translation updates.

REMINDER:

You are strongly advised to backup your data before editing partitions as a failure can lead to data loss.  This is especially true for encrypted data where all of the data can become permanently inaccessible after a failure.  Please refer to the Cryptsetup FAQ for backup and recovery advice of encrypted data.

Key changes in this release include:

  • Implement LUKS read-write actions NOT requiring a passphrase

  • Add detection of iso9660 file system
