Release Notes: After two months of upgrades and bugfixes, a new version of Parted Magic is ready for release. The key changes are: Firefox 17, Grub 2.00, Truecrypt 7.1a, Linux 3.6.8, Tigervnc 1.2.0, John 1.7.9, QT4 Fsarchiver 6.15.2, File-Roller 18.104.22.168, SpaceFM 0.8.3, ClamTK 4.42, CUPS 1.5.4, Audacious 3.3.1, Asunder 1.6.2, Parcellite 1.0.2rc5, and Screen 4.0.3.
Release Notes: The default File Manger and Desktop Manager is now PCManFM. There is a one-click option in the Network menu to install VirtualBox. 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. There are lots of little improvements in the Secure Erase GUI. Parted Magic now includes Redshift GUI for those spending many hours at the machine at night. All Xorg drivers have been updated to the newest releases. The Linux kernel has been upgraded to long-term support version 3.10.18.
Release Notes: This version includes a new GUI for Secure Erase and a GUI for DDRescue. It now boots normally on Windows 8 machines with Secure Boot enabled. There is a completely new layout for the panel menu, and many updated programs.
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.
