5/7/08 - Parted Magic 2.2.
This is another update/bugfix in the 2.0 series. I dropped VisParted because strong development is coming from the GParted camp once again. Recent updates to PCManFM have made some new things possible on the desktop and improved the look and feel. All mountable partitions and cdroms are fully supported from the desktop now, so it's never been easier to access files from Parted Magic. You will find most of the bad bugs and annoyances from 2.1 have been fixed.

Parted Magic is a Linux LiveCD/USB/PXE with its elemental purpose being to partition hard drives and is not designed to be a "Rescue CD" nor is it based on another Distribution.
Optimized at approximately 45MB, 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, ddrescue, etc.) 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.

Parted Magic uses Busybox for basic Unix commands and networking, the Dropbear SSH server and client, and Firefox to surf the web.
