GParted Live update supports Btrfs resizing
Version 0.10.0-3 of GParted Live, a small bootable Linux distribution that contains the GParted utility, has been released. GParted, which stands 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.
The new version of GParted Live is based on the unstable branch of Debian, known as "Sid", from 2 November and includes the recent 0.10.0 release of GParted from 1 November. Some of the most notable changes in the updated application include the addition of support for resizing partitions that use the Btrfs file system, support for exFAT detection, and, the ability to merge overlapping operations. The developers also note that the depreciated "info" icon has been removed.
Further details can be found in the release notes and in the change log. GParted Live 0.10.0-3 is available to download as a 115 MB ISO image file. Hosted on SourceForge, Gparted Live source code is licensed under the GPLv2.
