Release Notes: This version of Parted Magic updates many programs, introduces a few new ones, and adds a new module system. The most notable program updates include Linux kernel 3.12.6, ClamTK 5.01, File Roller 3.10.0, Mozilla Firefox 26.0, and GParted 0.17.0. A few programs were added. These include Gpointing Device Settings, Rdiff Backup, Wimlib, PCRegEdit, and many new Perl modules for the ClamTK upgrade. A new module system drastically reduces the amount of RAM needed to use extra programs, and works exactly like the old system.

At this time, only 32bit is supported. uEFI support for CD/DVD booting has been improved. The 64bit and 32bit kernel modules are now in two separate initramfs.

Release Notes: This unstable version adds a new GUI for Secure Erase. More testing needs to be done before it's safe to use on production systems.
Release Notes: This release adds improved international language, USB, and video support. Dutch, Ukrainian, and Turkish language support has been added. Asian language support has been improved by adding the SCIM input method by default. The panel menu now has vastly better translations for all supported languages. pptp networking support has been added to the Network Manager. Support has improved for USB and USB flash drives and for ATI and Intel graphics cards.
Release Notes: This is probably the most thoroughly-tested version of Parted Magic that's been done in a while. More attention has been given to fixing old problems than to adding new features (though there are quite a few new ones). The program to download virus definitions has been overhauled to show more information after the download is complete, such as the size of the files and the version. You can also decide to download the main, the daily, or both. The program which displays which programs are installed has been split into groups instead of a 1,000-package list.
Release Notes: This release has moved away from extracting udev from systemd to using eudev. So far, the results have been an improvement. Clonezilla has been updated. There is also a reworked syslinux.cfg and an all new GRUB UEFI menu.
