GParted Logo The GParted developers have released version 0.8.0-5 of GParted Live, a small bootable Linux distribution that contains the GParted utility. GParted, an acronym for Gnome PARTition EDitor, is a partition editor application that can be used to create, organise and delete disk partitions via a graphical user interface (GUI). Supported file systems include Btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, FAT16 and FAT32, HFS and HFS+, NTFS and others.

Compared to the previous release, the latest version of GParted Live is based on the Debian sid repository and features updates to the underlying Linux operating system, including the latest 2.6.38 Linux kernel. According to developer Steven Shiau, the ssh package was added in this release, however ssh service is not enabled by default. A bug affecting setxkbmap, which sets the keyboard using the X Keyboard Extension, was also addressed.

Details about the update can be found in the release notes and in the change log. GParted Live 0.8.0-5 is available to download from and is licensed under version 2 of the GNU General Public License.
