GNU Parted is a package for creating, destroying, resizing, checking, and copying partitions and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data between hard disks, and disk imaging. It contains a library, libparted, and a command-line frontend, parted, which also serves as a sample implementation and script backend.

Release Notes: The software is now licensed under version 3 of the GPL. Bugs were fixed in parted and partprobe with the addition of a --dry-run option to partprobe. Read/write improvements were made for BSD, Amiga, and DASD disk labels. The testing framework was improved. Memory leaks were fixed. Ext2 fs creation was fixed. Initial support was added for 2K logical sector sizes for MSDOS disk labels.
Release Notes: This release fixes compile problems on certain platforms, corrects option parsing errors, fixes problems with script mode, and has other UI improvements.
Release Notes: This release addresses a problem with the linux-swap filesystem type. A change was introduced that created the linux-swap(new) and linux-swap(old) filesystem types. This change is still present in the development branch, but deemed not appropriate for the stable tree, so this release has reverted to the previous usage of 'linux-swap' as the filesystem type to maintain compatibility with other projects.
Release Notes: Missing po translation files were included.
Release Notes: Minor build-related bugfixes for the 1.8.3 release.
