Clonezilla Live 2.2.2-39, a Linux distribution based on DRBL, Partclone, and udpcast that allows users to do bare metal backup and recovery, has been released and users can now test all its features.The Clonezilla developers have just launched a new development version for their Linux distro, and this time it’s all about a new Linux kernel and some smaller updates.
"The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository, as of April 22, 2014," reads the official changelog.
The Linux kernel for this latest testing version has been upgraded to version 3.13.10-1, which is one of the newest stable releases available, and the drbl package has been updated to version 2.8.16-drbl1. It’s likely that future versions will switch to Linux kernel 3.14 soon.
Clonezilla Live is a Linux distribution that does only one thing: bare metal backup and recovery. It's very similar to other, older pieces of cloning software, such as True Image or Norton Ghost.
A complete list of changes, improvements, and fixes can be found in the official announcement. You can download Clonezilla Live 2.2.2-39 right now from Softpedia.
Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
