Topic: Announcement: GParted 0.15.0 released!

WARNING:  Avoid Using GParted 0.15.0 for Partition Moves, Resizes, Copies and Checks

We are investigating reports of intermittent crashes with GParted 0.15.0.
See Bug 697727 - Segfault in livecd Gparted v 0.15.0-3 when copying partition.

The risk of LOSS of DATA is highest when performing partition moves, resizes, copies, and checks. As such we recommend using GParted 0.14.1 for all move, resize, copy, and check operations.

Other operations such as create, delete, format, label, set UUID, and delete might also crash, but these should not result in unexpected data loss, and the operation can be repeated.

Until this problem is resolved we advise using the last stable release of GParted Live, which is GParted Live 0.14.1-6 (note it might be under the folder OldFiles).

We highly recommend that you BACKUP your DATA before using any partitioning tool.

GParted 0.15.0 was released on March 19, 2013.

The big news with this release is the ability to track live updates of command execution progress.  This should help with determining the status of long running commands by enabling users to see the live command output in the details section of the apply operations window.  This new ability is implemented by a fundamental code change that spawns commands to run asynchronously.  Also included in this release are bug fixes and language translation updates.

Key changes in this release include:

  • Live tracking of command progress output in the details log

  • Move operations are twice as fast as prior versions

  • Proper cancel support added

  • Volume label length now based on file system type

  • Unallocated space is selected by default

  • New key bindings added:
       - Insert     --> New Partition
       - Ctrl+Enter --> Apply All Operations
