The Parted Magic OS employs core programs of GParted and Parted to handle partitioning tasks with ease, while featuring other useful software (e.g. Partimage, TestDisk, Truecrypt, Clonezilla, G4L, SuperGrubDisk, ddrescue, etc…) and an excellent set of info to benefit the user. An extensive collection of file system tools are also included, as Parted Magic supports the following: btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, and xfs.
This script adds as a "Multi-Boot" option the ability to boot into the Parted Magic OS. It requires the i686 version of the tool, since that is now a part of how the version information is extracted. It will process a local copy of the ISO, or if not found, attempt to download the file specified. Using the AU# file originally included in previous versions of the script, it will read the download page, and attempt to find the latest version, and download it (if not already present in the "cache" directory.
This means that if the file name is left blank, you should always get the latest version released.
For more information on the changes made to the internal organization, and the nameing changes, see the news file entry dated 11/24/11.
