gparted - Gnome Partition Editor

Website: http://gparted.sourceforge.net
License: GPLv2+
Description:
GParted stands for Gnome Partition Editor and is a graphical frontend to
libparted. Among other features it supports creating, resizing, moving
and copying of partitions. Also several (optional) filesystem tools provide
support for filesystems not included in libparted. These optional packages
will be detected at runtime and don't require a rebuild of GParted

Packages

    Prevent visual disk display area from disappearing
    
    Added a display refresh to the event queue to address this
    problem.
    
    Previously, the display area of the visual disk seemed to
    disappear when enough operations had been added to the queue so
    that a scrollbar was required (about 4 operations).
    
    If the three lines in HBoxOperations::load_operations method for
    "//make scrollwindow focus on the last operation in the list"
    were commented out then this also prevented the problem from
    occurring.
    
    Interestingly, if I changed the "set_cursor" method to
    a "scroll_to_row" method, then this problem does not occur for an
    additional 2 operations (about 6 operations total).

    Fix minor cylinder alignment rounding error (size < 1 cylinder)
    
    Previously when creating a new partition on a device with 512
    byte sectors with 7 MiB chosen and cylinder alignment, the
    snap_to_cylinder logic would round up to 2 cylinders (~15.69
    MiB), instead of the correct 1 cylinder (~7.84 MiB).

    Fix paste destination partition smaller than source (#639393)
    
    Re-work logic for copying a cylinder aligned partition to a new
    MiB aligned partition.  Previously this was partially fixed in
    bug #626946 - Destination partition smaller than source partition
    
    Closes Bug #639393 - Redux: Destination partition smaller than
                         source partition
