Steven Shiau proudly announced today, January 30th, a new stable release of his popular Clonezilla Live operating system, used for cloning hard disk drives.
Clonezilla Live 1.2.12-10 is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms and includes major improvements and assorted bugfixes.
Clonezilla Live 1.2.12-10 is powered by Linux kernel 3.2.1-2 and features Partclone 0.2.45 and Syslinux 4.0.5. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository as of January 27th, 2012.
Better mechanisms were implemented, in ocs-update-syslinux ("syslinux -i" will run only when files that will be updated will be found), for Microsoft Windows boot partition size to be kept reserved if the "-k1" option will be selected, and to handle UFS partition in a GPT table when saving FreeBSD 9.0.
Another mechanism was implemented to bypass saving of an image for an unmatched MBR partition table or GPT. VMFS5 and VMFS3 support are now separated, as partclone.fstype higher than 0.2.45 can now tell them.
Added an option to use "autoname" in order to create the image name, the -icds, --ignore-chk-dsk-size-pt option to skip checking the size of the destination hard disk before creating the partition table on it.
Moreover, the -z7|--lrzip-compress option was also added in Clonezilla Live 1.2.12-10 in order to use lrzip to compress images.
Several more bugs and issues were also fixed in Clonezilla Live 1.2.12-10. Check out the official changelog for more information.
The Clonezilla Live is a minimal Linux distribution based on Partition Image, ntfsclone, DRBL and udpcast. It allows you to massively clone computers simultaneously.
Clonezilla Live supports the following filesystems: ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, xfs, jfs, fat16, fat32, ntfs and hfs+. It can be used to clone Linux, Microsoft Windows and even Intel-based Apple Mac operating systems. Any other filesystem can be cloned with dd.
