parted-3.3 released [stable]

Item posted by Brian C. Lane <bcl> on Fri 11 Oct 2019 12:18:16 AM UTC.

Parted 3.3 has been released.  This release includes many bug fixes and new features.

Here is Parted's home page:

For a summary of all changes and contributors, see:

or run this command from a git-cloned parted directory:
  git shortlog v3.2..v3.3 (appended below)

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

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] 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-3.3.tar.xz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key, then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 117E8C168EFE3A7F

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.1
  Gnulib commit 6430babe47ece6953cf18ef07c1d8642c8588e89
  Gperf 3.1


A considerable number of patches have been made since the last release, see the git log if you want all the gory details.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to this release.
