The Parted Magic OS employs core programs of GParted and Parted to handle partitioning tasks with ease, while featuring other useful programs (e.g. Partition Image, TestDisk, fdisk, sfdisk, dd, and ddrescue) and an excellent set of documentation to benefit the user. An extensive collection of fileystem tools are also included, as Parted Magic supports the following: ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, reiser4, and xfs.

Removed: pbzip2-1.0.5 replaces bzip2, this doesn't make any difference unless you have more than one processor. blkid from util-linux replaces the one from e2fsprogs. pigz-2.1.4 replaces gzip. Removed awk, grep, and sed from busybox to use the real versions, G4L (we have Clonezilla now and it doesn't make sense to double up on cloning tools)
Added: curl-7.19.5, clonezilla-2.3.3-33, partclone_0.1.1-10, drbl-1.9.4-33, awk-3.1.6, sed-4.1.5, grep-2.5.3, tightvnc-1.3.9 (only vncviewer), a script to suspend USB hard disks, mkswap-uuid-0.1.0-2
Fixed: A bug in busybox awk was causing the save session from the LiveUSB to fail. Added better support for "it" key maps. Stopped "menu" from having more than one instance. Xvesa settings now saved with "Save Session".
