Stable Clonezilla live (2.2.2-32) Released

This release of Clonezilla live (2.2.2-32) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.
ENHANCEMENTS and CHANGES
* The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Mar/31).
* Linux kernel was updated to 3.13.7-1.
* Partclone was updated to 0.2.70. An issue about restoring image file to raw format has been fixed (http://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/
discussion/Clonezilla_live/thread/4db4b2bd/). Thanks to quaid for
reporting this issue.
* Syslinux was updated to 6.03-pre9.
* Package drbl was updated to 2.8.6-drbl1, and clonezilla was updated to 3.9.49-drbl1.
* Two options were added to makeboot.sh: -L and -U. Patch provided by Ceasar Sun.
* A boot parameter "ocs_prompt_mode" was added so some of the prompt could be shown in TUI or CMD mode.
* Function parse_cmdline_option of drbl-functions was updated to accept all print characters ([[:print:]]). Thanks to Fuchs (fusi1939 at users sf net) for this suggestion.
* Image creating time will be shown in the prompt before restoring an image.
* An example gen-rec-usb was added. It could be used to create a recovery USB flash drive directly from the machine. Thanks to ilovecats for this idea.
* The example "clone-multiple-usb-example.sh" was removed because it's in the main menu already.
* An unattended option (-b) was added to makeboot.sh.
* Package libc6-i386 was added in all AMD64 version so that some 32-bit programs could be run.
* The "syslinux" and "isolinux" dirs of Clonezilla live have been unified as one dir "syslinux". Thanks to Ady (ady-sf at hotmail com) for this suggestion.
* An option "-d syslinux" was added when running syslinux in makeboot.sh/makeboot.bat/makeboot64.bat. Thanks to Ady (ady-sf at hotmail com) for this suggestion.
* The option "--rsyncable" was added for gzip/pigz when saving an image (https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/discussion/Open_discussion/thread/8d5f80a6). Thanks to lucatrv for providing this idea.
* Pixz is used in ocs-onthefly local to remote cloning. An option to use xz as filter program was added, too.
* Switching back to lbzip2 (http://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/discussion/Open_discussion/thread/141facdc/). Thanks to Steven Goris for reminding this.
* Language files ca_ES and zh_CN were updated. Thanks to Juan Ramón
Martínez, René Mérou, and Zhiqiang Zhang.

BUG FIXES
* The parameter "autoproductname" should filter the characters "()[]{}". Thanks to Coudy* for reporting this issue (https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/bugs/193/).
* The menu about "toram" option for grub should use
toram=filesystem.squashfs instead of toram so that it's consistent with that of syslinux.
* The xz format for old image format (e.g. sda1.aa) was not detected
(https://sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/bugs/191/). Thanks to peter green for reporting this issue.
* A typo for the destination partition for 2nd confirmation for local partition to local partition was fixed (https://sourceforge.net/p/
clonezilla/discussion/Open_discussion/thread/b99ab9e6/). Thanks to Tweed for reporting this bug.
* The grub dir name is called "grub2" for Fedora >=18, that causes
check_grub_partition function failed to locate the grub partition.
