Developers behind the GParted utility, the popular open-source program for managing Linux file-system partitions, released version 0.16.

The major change to the GParted 0.16 release from Wednesday is presenting support for the F2FS file-system. This is the new Samsung Flash Friendly File-System for Linux, which can now be made and modified via the GUI-driven GParted.

Aside from adding support for the F2FS file-system, GParted 0.16 also takes care of a crash that could have caused data loss when moving or copying a partition. It also fixes GParted scans forever blank disk when run within a virtual machine.

More details on GParted 0.16 can be found out from the release notes at SourceForge.
