    Release Notes: This is a major upgrade, converting the live CD base from Ubuntu 10.10 to 12.04 LTS to provide better hardware support for more devices. The drive reset utility now allows multiple drives to be reset simultaneously. Better progress reporting based on partition sizes was implemented. Conformance with Ubuntu Remix guidelines was improved. Window titlebars are now provided for easier navigation. Time now syncs to local machine time rather than forcing a timezone. A beep is given when long processes complete. Other enhancements were made.

      Release Notes: This release adds many requested enhancements. Spaces now allowed in network file share names. Warnings are included for the disk space free on the destination drive. An error is reported if restoration fails due to a nonexistent partition. Long lists of partitions are size-limited in the dropdown so they fit on the screen. The newest stable partclone binaries have been added to the live CD image.

        Release Notes: This release improves on the stability and features of the 1.0.0 release by adding LVM tools (system-config-lvm), fixing support for HFS+ filesystems, and applying some minor changes to the live CD boot menu to support loading the system to RAM as an option (so a CD-ROM drive can be used for reading a backup or burning a CD).

            Release Notes: This release begins the planned conversion to an updated Ubuntu 10.10 live CD base, built from scratch, to provide more complete hardware support for more devices, a better upgrade path for future releases, and easier ability to customize the live CD or add features and patches.

              Release Notes: A new Windows-based autoexec.exe was added to notify first-time and casual computer users that the computer must be rebooted with the Redo disc in order for the live CD to run. The UI was revised to use a cleaner color scheme, and the VERSION is now listed on the root of the CD for easier identification.

                Release Notes: Many substantial improvements and additions to the suite of tools on the live CD. The very powerful Gnome disk utility (palimpsest), support for encrypted volumes with cryptsetup, the GUI tool lshw-gtk to easily identify computer hardware components, the baobab graphical disk usage tool, and a GUI rsync tool have been added. The requirement of scanning a net before specifying a share manually during backup has been fixed. Verification of drive reset has been fixed. The default boot option is the "fbdev" driver in 1024x768 (16-bit) mode, since it is nearly universally compatible with all hardware.

                  Release Notes: Massive performance improvements were made. Backups and restores now finish 4 to 5 times faster. A flexible safe video mode was implemented in the boot menu to ensure the widest possible video hardware compatibility. Partclone binaries were updated to the latest versions. The smartmontools "smartctl" utility was added to help monitor hard drive health. The isolinux/syslinux configuration files were merged into one for simplicity.

Any errors are now output to a log file for easier debugging. Local FTP servers are now automatically found along with Windows file shares. Boot options have been changed to make it easier to see boot progress after language selection. A splash screen has been added to USB installations. There are many more additions.
