Steven Shiau proudly announced last evening, May 30th, a new stable release of his popular Clonezilla Live operating system, used for cloning hard disk drives.
Being based on the Debian Sid repository as of May 25th, 2012, the Clonezilla Live 1.2.12-60 operating system is powered by Linux kernel 3.2.18-1 and incorporates Partclone 0.2.48, drbl 1.12.9-1drbl and Gdisk 0.8.4-1.1drbl.
This release also allows now to create a partition table when a blank destination hard drive is found in restoreparts mode, by entering the command-line prompt.
The vlan package was added in Clonezilla Live 1.2.12-60, as well as support for the vmfs5 filesystem, and an option to use "autohostname" in order to create the image name.
Because of some changes in Live-boot, the boot parameter that's used to assign static IP address has now been changed and the new format is ip=[DEVICE]:[CLIENT_IP]:[NETMASK]:[GATEWAY_IP]:[NAMESERVER] [,[DEVICE]:[CLIENT_IP]:[NETMASK]:[GATEWAY_IP]:[NAMESERVER]]
Moreover, the "config" and "live-config" boot parameters can now be used to make live-config to work, when managing the boot parameters by yourself.
Last but not least, the English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese language files were updated.
A couple of bugs were squashed in Clonezilla Live 1.2.12-60, one for the CIFS filesystem and the other one for a grpck error during boot. Check out the official changelog
for more details.
