Topic: Announcement: GParted 0.16.0 released!

CAUTION: Possible thread timing issue with GParted 0.16.0

Since the release of GParted 0.16.0, we have discovered another potential issue with timing and multiple threads. This issue appears to occur on older GNU/Linux distributions. In fact the issue was not apparent in our testing of GParted 0.16.0 on recent distros.

For more details see Bug 695279 - GParted doesn't compile on RHEL / CentOS 5.9.

Until this problem is resolved we continue to advise using the last stable release of GParted Live, which is GParted Live 0.14.1-6.

April 25, 2013

GParted 0.16.0 was released on April 24, 2013.

This release of GParted includes a critical bug fix for a crash that might cause loss of data while moving or copying a partition.  We strongly recommend that all users of GParted 0.15.0 upgrade to GParted 0.16.0 to avoid data loss.  Also included are bug fixes, enhancements and language translation updates.

Key changes in this release include:

  • Avoid crash in GParted when moving or copying partitions

  • Fix GParted scans forever blank disk in virtual machine

  • Add support for f2fs file system

The release notes list all important changes.
