GParted 0.28.0 Released

GParted is the GNOME Partition Editor for creating, reorganizing, and
deleting disk partitions.

The GParted 0.28.0 release adds partial read-write support for LUKS
encrypted file systems. GParted can't create, open or close LUKS
encryption volumes; however it can copy, resize and manipulate file
systems inside open LUKS volumes and move closed LUKS volumes. (Resizing
requires Linux kernel >= 3.6 and libparted >= 3.2 for online partition

Also included are bug fixes and language translation updates.


You are strongly advised to backup your data before editing partitions
as a failure can lead to data loss. This is especially true for
encrypted data where all of the data can become permanently inaccessible
after a failure. Please refer to the Cryptsetup FAQ [1] for backup and
recovery advice of encrypted data.


Key changes include:
     - Implement LUKS read-write actions NOT requiring a passphrase
     - Add detection of iso9660 file system
