Stable Clonezilla live (2.0.1-15) Released

This release of Clonezilla live (2.0.1-15) includes minor 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 2012/Dec/17).
* Linux kernel was updated to 3.2.35-1.
* Module floppy was listed in the blacklist. The floppy is normally useless but if it exists, it might cause the disk detection delay. If floppy is required, a user still can run "modprobe floppy" to load it.
* Catalan language was added. Thanks to René Mérou and Innocent De Marchi.
* Language file de_DE, it_IT, fr_FR, ja_JP.UTF-8, zh_CN and zh_TW were updated. Thanks to Michael Vinzenz, Gianfranco Gentili, Jean-Francois Nifenecker, Akira YOSHIYAMA, and Zhiqiang Zhang.... read more

Stable Clonezilla live (2.0.1-5) Released

This release of Clonezilla live (2.0.1-5) includes minor 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 2012/Nov/26).
* Linux kernel was updated to 3.2.32-1.
* Package drbl was updated to 2.1.34-drbl1, and clonezilla was updated to 3.1.22-drbl1. The new paths for the files in these two packages are in /usr/sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/share/drbl/sbin, and /usr/share/drbl/bin. No more under /opt/drbl/. Hence, the new pre-run and post-run paths are /usr/share/drbl/prerun/ocs/ and /usr/share/drbl/postrun/ocs/, respectively.
* A KMS mode was added in the boot menu.
* Partclone was updated to 0.2.56.
* Packages tcplay and mpg123 were added.
* Boot parameter "ocs_lang" is now replaced by "locales" from live-config.
* Boot parameter "ocs_live_keymap" is now replaced by "keyboard-layouts" from live-config.
* Boot parameters "echo_ocs_prerun" and "echo_ocs_postrun" were added. This can be used to disable echoing the ocs_prerun and ocs_postrun command.
* An option to use "autohostname" to create the image name was added. Thanks to tererecool (David Bauer) for this idea.
* The command to save an image will be saved in the image dir as file Info-saved-by-cmd.txt.
* Another partition table file, e.g. sda-pt.parted.compact, will be saved in image dir when saving an image. It's easier for human to read.
* //NOTE// From Clonezilla live 1.2.6-24, if you manage the boot parameters by yourself, you have to put the extra boot parameter "config" or "live-config" to make live-config to work.
* //NOTE// From Clonezilla live 1.2.6-24, due to the change in Live-boot, the boot parameter to assign static IP address has been changed. The new format is:
ip=**[DEVICE]:[CLIENT_IP]:[NETMASK]:[GATEWAY_IP]:[NAMESERVER] [,[DEVICE]:[CLIENT_IP]:[NETMASK]:[GATEWAY_IP]:[NAMESERVER]]***::
e.g.
ip=eth0:192.168.100.1:255.255.255.0:192.168.100.254:8.8.8.8,eth1:

* The Linux kernel was updated to 3.2.1-2.
* Partclone was updated to version 0.2.45.
* Syslinux was updated to 4.0.5.
* A better mechanism was implemented in ocs-update-syslinux. Only when the files to be updated are found on the system "syslinux -i" will be run.
* A better mechanism was implemented to keep the MS Windows boot reserved partition size when option "-k1" is chosen.
* A better mechanism to deal with UFS partition in a GPT table when saving FreeBSD 9.0.
* An option to use "autoname" to create the image name was added. Thanks to encephalophone (Mike) for the patch.
* An option (-icds, --ignore-chk-dsk-size-pt) to skip checking skip checking destination disk size before creating the partition table on it
was added. Thanks to Sartoratti Lorenzo for reporting this issue.
* Option -z7|--lrzip-compress was added for Clonezilla to use lrzip to compress image.
* VMFS3 and VMFS5 support are separated, no more mixed because partclone.fstype from 0.2.45 now can tell them. Since vmfs5 support is still buggy, disable it in drbl-ocs.conf.
* A mechanism was added to avoid saving an image for an unmatched GPT and MBR partition table disk.

* The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2011/Sep/22).
* Linux kernel was updated to version 3.0.0-3.
* Partclone was updated to version 0.2.29.
* Gdisk was updated to version 0.8.0, and compiled without Unicode support. Therefore libicu44 is no longer included. This makes the Clonezilla live ISO file smaller by about 6 MB.
* Package partclone-utils was added.
* iPXE was updated to the date 20110910 from iPXE Git repository.
* German language files were added. Thanks to Michael Vinzenz .
* By default when a GNU/Linux system is restored, the udev hardware records (70-persistent-cd.rules and 70-persistent-net.rules under /etc/udev/rules.d/) in the restored OS will be removed. This can be disabled in the expert mode with the option "-irhr".
* Source tarball for all the packages in Clonezilla live was added. It can be found in the release repository, under the directory "source".
* A new live boot parameter was added: nicif. This parameter is used to assign the network card's MAC address so that when it is booted via PXE, the correct network card can be assigned specifically. This is for a machine with 2 or more network cards. Example for this boot parameter: nicif=aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff.

This release of Clonezilla live (1.2.9-19) includes major enhancements, changes 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 2011/Jul/22).
* Linux kernel was updated to 2.6.39-3.
* Partclone was updated to 0.2.24.
* Pbzip2 was updated to 1.1.4.
* Brazilian Portuguese language was added. Thanks to Marcos Pereira da Silva Cruz .

* Xz compression instead of gzip method was used when making squashfs, therefore the Clonezilla live iso or zip file is smaller by ~ 31 MB.
* Program prep-ocsroot was improved to make mounting sshfs with an account name including white space.
* Remove the option "-b1024" for pbzip2 since the unit is 100K, -b1024 will use 1024*100K per thread, and this might cause system to crash due to out of memory for multiple cores. Without the option -b, the default value will be used. Thanks to Telligent for the bug report (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=671650&aid=3324096&group_id=115473).

* Linux kernel was updated to 2.6.32-27.
* Partclone was updated to 0.2.16.
* Syslinux/isolinux was updated to 4.03.

The Next Stable Clonezilla Live - 1.2.6-24

Clonezilla live 1.2.6-24 is planned as the next stable release on Sep
27, 2010

This release of Clonezilla live includes major enhancements, changes
and bug fixes.

MAJOR ENHANCEMENTS and CHANGES:
* The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release
is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2010/Sep/21)
* New file system support, btrfs, was added in this release. It has
been tested successfully with Ubuntu Maverick beta restoration (/boot is
ext4, the rest of partitions are btrfs), and OpenSuSE 11.3 restoration
(/boot is ext3, the rest of partitions are btrfs). //NOTE// btrfs is
still in the beta status, therefore this support is in testing, too.
* Russian language was added. Thanks to Anton Pryadko.
* Program makeboot.sh was improved to allow running with full path.
* Option "--force" was added for grub-install (grub2) when it's run
with option "-g auto".
* It has been improved about running grub reinstall. If failing to run
grub2 from the restored OS, Clonezilla will next try to use the grub2
from Clonezilla live now.
* The Linux kernel was updated to 2.6.32-23.
* This release was created by live-build 2.0~a29-1, and new
live-initramfs, i.e. live-boot 2.0.5-1.drbl1, and live-config was
2.0.6-1.drbl1 are used.
* Partclone was updated to 0.2.15.
* gPXE was updated to 1.0.1.
* The etherboot boot menu was removed since it's not maintained
anymore, and we have gPXE now.
* Package syslinux was updated to 4.02.... read more
