    Release Notes: A new Steampunk/Tron theme was included with two sizes and a probe for screen resolution, so it looks good on most machines.

      Release Notes: EFI booting support from CDROM has been greatly improved. "Erase Disk" has a new menu with translations. f2fs-tools has been added, and you can create a f2fs with GParted. A new “forcevesa” kernel commandline option has been added. (This works with cards like the MGA G200* series.) The Parted Magic Wipe Free Space GUI has been translated. There's a simple GTK+ GUI for chntpw which should make changing Windows passwords much easier. The Xorg Server has been upgraded to 1.14.1 with all the latest Xorg drivers. SpaceFM now manages the desktop. You can now drag and drop icons to the desktop or /root/Desktop folders. The right-click menu allows the creation of files and folders, which means you can keep your files on the desktop again. Jeex and Hexedit have been added to the SpaceFM right-click “Open” menu, which makes it much easier to edit files directly. “Open terminal here” and “Show hidden files” have also been added to the right-click menu. There's a new program to help prepare USB drives for booting Parted Magic, called “USB Boot Flash”, with code based on “bootflash” from Puppy Linux. Firefox has been upgraded to version 20.0.1. There's a new program called “Parted Magic Mount”, and the fstab daemon has been completely redesigned to work much faster and be much more accurate than it has been. Because of the new design, it polls every 5 seconds instead of 10. If a change is detected, the device probe and fstab changes are made in about one second on most machines. GParted has been upgraded to version 0.16.1. This version corrects the segfaults found in the 0.15.0 and 0.16.0 releases. Clonezilla has been upgraded to version 3.3.10 and DRBL to version 2.3.10. There have also been a number of added programs: chkrootkit-0.49, gdmap-0.8.1, sg3_utils-1.35, jeex-12.0, xterm-291, rdesktop-1.7.1, putty-0.62, and f2fs-tools-1.1.0. The Linux kernel has been upgraded to version 3.8.10 with reiser4 support. The following programs have been removed: udisks, mount-gtk, Rox-filer, feh, and imlib.

        Release Notes: Parted Magic now supports booting from EFI BIOS. The kernel has been upgraded to Linux 3.7.9, with fixes for the bug bricking Samsung laptops using EFI and the samsung-laptop module. It's safe to use EFI and Parted Magic in this release.

          Release Notes: This version brings all the Xorg packages up to date, adds Spanish language support, and has a greatly improved Shut Down Menu. In the last release, there were some issues with the Xorg 13 series. Some people were getting black screens. Reports have come in, and most of this seems to be corrected by adjusting some udev rules, pulling a few Xorg drivers from git, and updating to the 3.7.5 Linux kernel.

                Release Notes: This version includes GParted 0.14.0 with LVM support and Xorg Server 1.13.0 with the latest drivers. Some Reiser4 patches were included, and the reiser4progs package was patched to work with GParted and the 3.x kernels. Rdesktop was removed in favor of FreeRDP and its GUI, Remmina. Two plugins were added to SpaceFM to make it possible to mount Samba shares and use ClamAV directly from the file manager. Several minor bugs were fixed, and a large number of programs were updated.
