Release Notes: A serious bug in GPT has been fixed (libparted).
Release Notes: libparted now handles sector_size correctly (as long long), and labels' probe functions now return immediately negative if the device's logical sector size is not equal to 512 and only 512 is supported. parted falls back to the old signal API for operating systems without sigaction().
Release Notes: The interface and binary age from rc2 were fixed. An FPE error that was reported incorrectly was fixed. A typographical error was fixed.
Release Notes: Support for Apple GUIDs was added to GPT code. A block size initializer compile problem in reiserfs code was fixed. Standard devices are now probed before /sys/block and /proc/partitions.
Release Notes: BeOS support was added. A "strange layout" in ext2 was fixed. Logical and physical sector sizes not equal to 512 are now supported. /sys/block support was added. A new "print" formatter, the "print all" command, the "print free" command, and scientific unit display were added. A core dump in the "rescue" command was fixed. The manual was cut down substantially and scheduled for migration to the prospective GNU Storage Guide.
