Topic: Development Plans for the Next Release of GParted (0.32.0)

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

Candidates under consideration include:

Done? - Bug# - Description
Yes - Bug 794253 - Desupport RHEL / CentOS 5 and raise minimum required versions to glibmm 2.14.0 and gtkmm 2.16.0
Mike Fleetwood has provided a patch set.

Yes - Bug 795617 - Implement opening and closing of LUKS mappings
Mike Fleetwood has provided a patch set.

Yes - Bug 796293 - Fix null pointer check accidentally disabled
Robert Ancell has provided 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.
