I would like to announce two releases of KDE Partition Manager. Version 1.1.1 is a bugfix release. It was ported away from Solid to avoid the unfortunate udisks2 bug and uses libparted directly (partitionmanager was using libparted already anyway). That means packagers do not have to select -DENABLE_UDISKS2 cmake option anymore.
Version 1.2.0 is a new feature release. It doesn’t have that many new features but the port to KDE Frameworks is complete.
Download links can be found in usual locations on download.kde.org:
In the next release there are some plans to separate core part of KDE Partition Manager and the GUI part, so that other projects like distribution-independent installer Calamares would be able to reuse Partition Manager code easier.
Edit: It looks like 1.2.0 version have a broken docs that adds unintentional dependency on kdelibs4support (bug #344256). I will try to release 1.2.1 soon that fixes this issue.
Edit: KDE Partition Manager 1.2.1 is now released. docs are fixed and don’t require kdelibs4support anymore. KDE_INSTALL_USE_QT_SYS_PATHS is also enabled by default.
