Topic: Development Plans for the Next Release of GParted (0.30.0)

With the next release we plan to add new enhancements to GParted.

Candidates under consideration include:

Done? - Bug# - Description
Yes - Bug 786050 - GParted reports failed to execute child process "mkudffs" when it is not installed
Mike Fleetwood has created a patch.

Yes - Bug 776437 - GParted fails to run as root under Wayland
Mike Fleetwood has created a patch set.

Yes - Bug 786502 - Support reading Unicode labels when file system specific tools aren't available
Mike Fleetwood has created a patch set.

Yes - Bug 787202 - Update list of prohibited fat label characters
Pali Rohár has created a patch.

Yes - Bug 787181 - Fix detection of file system images
Pali Rohár has created a patch.

No - Bug 627701 - option to encrypt new partitions (using LUKS)
Mike Fleetwood is working on this enhancement.

No - Bug 688883 - Improve SSD handling by using TRIM
Mike Fleetwood is working on this enhancement.

No - Bug 755429 - Add read-only display of LVM volume groups and logical volumes
Wrolf Courtney is working on this enhancement.

no - Bug 671784 - enhancement: convert partitions from one file system to another
Massimiliano Ghilardi is working on this enhancement.

no - Bug 673166 - NTFS partition trashed when resized to minimum size
Vladimir Panteleev has provided a patch.
Because there have been no other reports of this issue since 2012, the problem is either extremely rare or has been fixed in upstream ntfs-3g and this work-around patch is not required.
