Live 2.4.5-20 released

    • Live 2.4.5-20 released

      The new stable version of the specialist Debian-based live CD with utilities for hard disk cloning and backup tasks has been released.

      The release notes can be found at Clonezilla / Mailing Lists.

      Just a few of the release notes:
      * The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2016/Feb/03).
      * Linux kernel was updated to 4.3.3-7. From Linux kernel v4, the default union file system has been changed to overlay, therefore if you edit boot parameter manually, you have to use "union=overlay". No more using "union=aufs". Due to the linux kernel change in Debian repository, no more i586 linux kernel, so now Debian-based Clonezilla live is only released with 3 architectures: i686, i686-pae and amd64.
      * Partclone was updated to 0.2.87-drbl2. A fat16 issue was fixed. Thanks to Łukasz Stefanowicz for reporting this. (sourceforge.net/p/clonezilla/bugs/237/)
      * New file system nilfs2 is supported in this release.
      * Now ocs-onthefly supports nvme device cloning, and can work for different types of disk cloning, e.g. nvme0n1 -> sda or vice versa.
      * Make ocs-install-grub run when it's a GPT disk with a special "bios_boot" partition exists in the machine using legacy BIOS.
      * By default the image integrity will be checked before restoring. The option "-scr" can be used to skip this checking. Thanks to Nabi OUMAROV (contact _at_ nabioumarov com) for the feedback.
      * The option "-sc" was replaced by "-scs" in drbl-ocs and ocs-sr. This will be easier to tell the differences between saving and restoring image. Option "-sc" is still working in the same way with "-scs", but might be dropped in the future.
      * Packages fatresize, nilfs-tools and fancontrol were added. * Add removing swapfile.sys in ocs-rm-win-swap-hib. Thanks to Bartosz Bątorek batorek _at_ gmail com> for suggesting this.
