CAUTION: Possible thread timing issue with GParted 0.16.0

On April 24, 2013 we released GParted 0.16.0 to address Bug 697727 - Segfault in Gparted 0.15.0 when copying partition. Since then we have discovered another potential issue with timing and multiple threads. This issue appears to occur on older GNU/Linux distributions. In fact the issue was not apparent in our testing of GParted 0.16.0 on recent distros.

See Bug 695279 - GParted doesn't compile on RHEL / CentOS 5.9.

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.

Regards, Curtis Gedak - April 25, 2013
