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

This release includes GParted 0.26.0, patches for libparted for FAT file system operations, and other improvements.

Items of note include:
  • Based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2016/Apr/29)
  • Linux kernel updated to 4.5.1-1
  • Includes GParted 0.26.0 which:
    • implements read-only LUKS support
    • adds progress bars to NTFS, XFS, and EXT2/3/4 file system copy methods
    • fixes operations sometimes fail with "No such file or directory"
  • Includes patched version of libparted which fixes:
  • Disabled hotkey ALT+F5 to avoid killing program accidentally (bug 703400)
  • Added netsurf web browser ca certicates (bug 763976).
This release of GParted Live has been successfully tested on VirtualBox, VMware, BIOS, UEFI, and physical computers with AMD/ATI, NVidia, and Intel graphics.

NOTE: VirtualBox workarounds: To boot in BIOS mode choose GParted Live "KMS mode", and to fix window manager issues right-click desktop and choose "fluxbox menu -> Restart". See Bug 761343 - GParted LiveCD won't start on VirtualBox... except with EFI enabled.
