GNU fdisk-1.2.1 released

I am happy to announce the release of GNU fdisk 1.2.1

GNU fdisk aims to replace various UNIX operating systems' legacy
partitioning tools with libparted-based ones that mimic the
interface of those tools.

Currently implemented alternatives are:

* util-linux `fdisk'
* util-linux `cfdisk'

Both versions have a compability mode and a GNU mode
that offers additional features.


In this release we have fixed the problem with `make install'
and `mkinstalldirs' error.


Gzipped and b2zipped tarballs are available from

and its mirror sites. SHA1 sums may be found there as well.

The web site of GNU fdisk is at:


You can help fdisk by

* testing and using the existing frontends

* developing more frontends (e.g. for Mac fdisk or util-linux sfdisk)
