Parted Magic is a small live CD/USB/PXE with its elemental purpose being to partition hard drives. Although GParted and Parted are the main programs, the CD/USB also offers other applications, such as Partition Image, TestDisk, fdisk, sfdisk, dd, and ddrescue. The project’s latest release, version 2021_05_12, is the latest of the distribution’s fixed releases. The release announcement on the Parted Magic news page reports the distribution will shift to a rolling release approach later in the year. “This version of Parted Magic once again updates 100’s of core programs and adds some new ones requested by users. I have added bcachefs-tools, but I was not able find a kernel patch for Linux 5.12, so there isn’t any kernel support. There is also some other news. This is the last version of Parted Magic in it’s current release format. Starting with the next release (in about 3 months), Parted Magic will take on the rolling release model. The One Year Subscription will be mostly unchanged. The other option will be a subscription service for $4 a month. Why is this better? You will be able to pay $4 a month and get fixes and updates. This lowers the price from $11 to $4 if you only need Parted Magic for a single one off project. All you have to do is log into your account and unsubscribe at any time.” Parted Magic can be purchased from the distribution’s online store for US$11.
