KDE --
The KDE Partition Manager, the promising disk partitioning application that's become a viable alternative to GParted, is up to version 2.2.

KDE Partition Manager 2.2 was released this week by Andrius Štikonas and its big feature is proper LUKS support. The KDE Partition Manager can now properly handle LUKS encrypted volumes with support for creating them and formatting the inner file-system, opening/closing LUKS volumes, resizing support, and more.

Besides this better dealing with LUKS encryption, KDE Partition Manager 2.2 makes greater use of C++11 language features, various bug fixes, compilation support under LLVM Clang, and more. More details via this blog post.
