Around May 22 or May 23, 2018, the gparted source code repository was migrated from git.gnome.org to gitlab.gnome.org.

This was part of a large migration performed by the GNOME project.
See GNOME moves to Gitlab and [GitLab] IMPORTANT: Mass migration plan.

This change will have implications for the GParted development process. Your patience while we deal with these implications is appreciated.

10 October 2017: GParted 0.30.0

This release of GParted includes an interim fix to enable running GParted as root under Wayland in addition to other bug fixes and language translation updates.

ATTENTION PACKAGERS:
The installation location of the gparted script has changed and package scripts calling pkexec can be dropped.

This release provides an interim workaround to allow GParted to run under Wayland by using xhost to grant and revoke root access to the X11 display. This must be enabled while building the software with:

./configure --enable-xhost-root

Pkexec from polkit has been made the first choice graphical SU program as all the desktops have settled on using polkit as the privileged access mechanism. See "Installing polkit's Action File" section in the README file for when an additional installation step may be needed.

Also changed is that execution of the graphical SU program has been moved from gparted.desktop to the gparted shell wrapper. Therefore gparted can be run either by an unprivileged user or by root and as such is installed in $prefix/bin rather than $prefix/sbin. This additionally means distributions can drop their pkexec scripts used to launch gparted.

Key changes include:
  • Interim fix for GParted fails to run as root under Wayland
  • Fix reading Unicode labels when no FS specific tools available
  • Safely quote and escape external programs arguments
See the Release Notes for more details.
