The GParted team is pleased to announce another stable release of GParted Live.

This release includes GParted 0.28.1, patches for libparted for FAT file system operations, and other improvements.

This release includes partial read-write support for LUKS encrypted file systems. GParted can't create, open or close LUKS encryption volumes; however it can copy, resize and manipulate file systems inside open LUKS volumes and move closed LUKS volumes. (Resizing requires Linux kernel >= 3.6 and libparted >= 3.2 for online partition resizing).

REMINDER:
You are strongly advised to backup your data before editing partitions as a failure can lead to data loss. This is especially true for encrypted data where all of the data can become permanently inaccessible after a failure. Please refer to the Cryptsetup FAQ for backup and recovery advice of encrypted data.

Items of note include:
  • Includes GParted 0.28.1 which adds the following enhancements since the last stable release:
    • Implement LUKS read-write actions NOT requiring a passphrase
    • Add detection of iso9660 file system
    • Make the Label File System and Name Partition dialogs larger
  • Based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2017/Feb/18)
  • Linux kernel updated to 4.9.6-3
  • Includes patched version of libparted which fixes:
This release of GParted Live has been successfully tested on VirtualBox, VMware, BIOS, UEFI, and physical computers with AMD/ATI, NVidia, and Intel graphics.
