WARNING: Avoid Using GParted 0.15.0

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.

Recommendation

Until this problem is resolved we advise using GParted Live 0.14.1-6.

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

GParted 0.15.0 (2013-03-19)

Release Notes

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 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

Bug Fixes

  • Refactor to use asynchronous command execution (#685740) which includes:
    • Remove move read-only simulation pass (#696013)
    • Remove temporary mtoolsrc file used in fat16/32 labelling and UUID
    • Cleanup duplicate code for common file system methods
    • Combine duplicate code for ext2/ext3/ext4
    • Check file system after reverting partition table when move canceled
    • Add proper cancel support for current and pending operations (#601239)
    • Fix interrupting a format leaves partition in-use (#403487)
    • Fix details log does not expand to the available vertical space (#602635)
    • Increase width of details log display to include status icons (#662722)
    • Select unallocated space by default (#667365)
  • Make partition label length dependent on the file system type (#689318)
  • Avoid reading trailing junk for a reiser4 label
  • Improve argument vector usage (#689689)
  • Prevent crash when using an unknown locale (#692049)
  • Work around faulty "complete disks" detection in mkdosfs (#693955)
  • Fix move primary partition right to left shrinks partition 1 MiB (#695078)
