Parted Magic developer Patrick Verner has announced the release of version 4.2 of the open source Parted Magic, multi-platform partitioning tool. Parted Magic can be used to create, move, delete and resize drive partitions and will run on a machine with as little as 64MB of RAM. File systems supported include NTFS, FAT, ReiserFS, Reiser4 and HFS+, LVM and RAID are also supported.

The 4.2 release includes several updates, bug fixes and new features. Clonezilla, an open source clone system (OCS) with features similar to Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition, has been added to Parted Magic to let users clone systems to multiple computers with support for uni-casting and multi-casting. To improve compression and decompression performance, bzip2 and gzip have been replaced with pbzip2 and pigz. Additional updates include the 2.6.30 Linux kernel, TrueCrypt 6.2 and BusyBox 1.14.1.

More details about the release can be found in the change log. Parted Magic 4.2 is available to download as an ISO image or USB file from SourceForge to run as either a LiveCD or LiveUSB.
