Clonezilla Live updates underlying OS
The Clonezilla project has released version 1.2.9-19 of its Clonezilla Live Linux distribution. The latest release of the open source clone system for hard disk partitioning and duplicating has been updated to the unstable branch of Debian (known as "Sid") from 22 July and includes the 2.6.39-3 Linux kernel.
Clonezilla Live 1.2.9-19 updates the Partclone partition image utility to version 0.2.24 and reduces the size of the ISO by approximately 31 MB due to compression changes. Other changes include the addition of support for the Brazilian Portuguese language, updates to the Samba file system, and Parallel BZIP2 (PBZIP2) 1.1.4. According to developer Steven Shiau, who also works on the GParted partition editor, a bug that caused disk to disk cloning to fail has also been fixed.
Further details about the release can be found in the official release announcement and in the change log. Clonezilla Live 1.2.9-19 is available to download as an ISO image file from the project's site. Hosted on SourceForge, Clonezilla is released under the GPLv2.
