I have released parted v3.5, the only change from the previous alpha was
updating gnulib to the current version.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

Here are the SHA256 checksums:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify parted-3.5.tar.xz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to update
or refresh it, and then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  gpg --locate-external-key

  gpg --recv-keys 117E8C168EFE3A7F

  wget -q -O- '' | gpg --import -

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.71
  Automake 1.16.5
  Gettext 0.21
  Gnulib v0.1-5201-g0cda5beb79
  Gperf 3.1


** New Features

  Update to latest gnulib for 3.5 release

** Bug Fixes

  usage: remove the mention of "a particular partition"

** New Features

  Add --fix to --script mode to automatically fix problems like the backup
  GPT header not being at the end of a disk.

  Add use of the swap partition flag to msdos disk labeled disks.

  Allow the partition name to be an empty string when set in script mode.

  Add --json command line switch to output the details of the disk as JSON.

  Add support for the Linux home GUID using the linux-home flag.

** Bug Fixes

  Decrease disk sizes used in tests to make it easier to run the test suite
  on systems with less memory. Largest filesystem is now 267MB (fat32). The
  rest are only 10MB.

  Add aarch64 and mips64 as valid machines for testing.

  Escape colons and backslashes in the machine output. Device path,
  model, and partition name could all include these. They are now
  escaped with a backslash.

  Use libdevmapper's retry remove option when the device is BUSY. This
  prevents libdevmapper from printing confusin output when trying to
  remove a busy partition.

  Keep GUID specific attributes when writing the GPT header. Previously
  they were set to 0.
