Favorite Linux program.

The GParted program has been one of the most popular free tools for creating new partitions, resizing existing ones or backing them up for several years. Probably everyone who used or uses Linux associates this distinctive interface based on the GNOME desktop environment. The application at the end of May last year after nearly 15 years from its creation it has version 1.0. Now it's time for its next update, this time marked as version 1.1.

GParted 1.1.0 shared by the developer, Curis Gedak, is an update that mainly focuses on cosmetic and qualitative changes. The focus here is on bug fixes, minor improvements to the program's operation, and even proofreading translations. Small corrections concern, for example, removing the "invalid argument for seek ()" error on partitions smaller than 40 KiB, or missing dialog titles in the Help content.

New features include faster reading of FAT16 and FAT32 consumption by minfo and mdir, as well as the ability to read JFS partition sizes more precisely. Advanced users will be glad to hear that this release adds support for recognizing ATARAID members and detecting their busy status. The transfer of encrypted partitions via LUKS has also been improved and the xvfb-run dependency which is required for the "make check" and "make distcheck" commands during the compilation process has been added.

Other cosmetic improvements are added file system interface tests, the ability to rename members and variables that are called "filesystem", repair tests (dentry-> d_name is invalidated by closedir …), and eliminate the problem that the FAT32 device returns the message "Cannot initialize disk" from mlabel.
