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](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=697727 "Bug 697727"). 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](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=695279 "Bug 695279"). 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 GParted 0.16.0 (2013-04-24) ============================ Release Notes ------------- This release of GParted includes a critical bug fix for a crash that might cause loss of data while moving or copying a partition. We strongly recommend that all users of GParted 0.15.0 upgrade to GParted 0.16.0 to avoid data loss. Also included are bug fixes, enhancements and language translation updates. ### Key changes include: * Avoid crash in GParted when moving or copying partitions * Fix GParted scans forever blank disk in virtual machine * Add support for f2fs file system Bug Fixes --------- * Avoid crash in GParted when moving or copying partitions (#697727) * Fix GParted scans forever blank disk in virtual machine (#697518) * Add support for f2fs file system (#695396) * Improve clearing of file system signatures (#688882) * Fix absolutely full ntfs reported as error (#697946) Code Credits ------------ Code enhancements are courtesy of Mike Fleetwood, Patrick Verner, Phillip Susi, and Curtis Gedak Translations (new/updated) -------------------------- ca(Pau Iranzo), ca@valencia(Carles Ferrando, Pau Iranzo), cs(Marek Černocký), de(Christian Kirbach, Wolfgang Stöggl), es(Nicolás Satragno, Daniel Mustieles), fr(Claude Paroz), hu(Gabor Kelemen), it(Milo Casagrande), lt(Aurimas Černius), pl(Piotr Drąg), pt_BR(Rafael Ferreira), po(Piotr Drąg), ro(Daniel Șerbănescu), sl(Matej Urbančič, Martin Srebotnjak), sr(Мирослав Николић), sr@latin(Miroslav Nikolić), tr(Muhammet Kara) Dependencies (new/updated) -------------------------- * f2fs-tools package is required for optional f2fs support.
