26 January 2015: GParted 0.21.0

This release of GParted includes enhancements, bug fixes and language translation updates. One fix involves an error introduced in 0.15.0 whereby GParted's internal block copy has an off by one sector bug when the source is before the destination; and the copy is performed backwards from high block to low block. The problem results in incorrect last sectors in partitions.

Key changes include:
  • Fix off by one sector error in GParted internal block copy
  • Add support for ext4 on RHEL/CentOS 5.x
  • Remove unnecessary duplicate actions when resizing a partition
See the Release Notes for more details.
