Calamares 3.2.23 released

As part of an extra-short-cycle release the Calamares team is happy to announce the availability of Calamares 3.2.23, a features-and-bugfixes release. This was extra-short to get some annoying translation regressions out of the way.

Calamares is a distribution-independent system installer, with an advanced partitioning feature for both manual and automated partitioning operations. Calamares is designed to be customizable by distribution maintainers without need for cumbersome patching, thanks to third party branding and external modules support.

This release contains contributions from (alphabetically by first name):

  • FLVAL (new contributor, welcome!)

Core

  • Some strange annotations were added to the About dialog text in all the translations, like {1?}. These have been removed again.

Modules

  • locale module had some errors in timezone data, where clicking on a city would select a different timezone. Some of these are now fixed (thanks FLVAL). #1374
  • netinstall supports a wider variety of package naming schemes, and is more flexible in loading a netinstall.yaml that is copied from the example configuration file, groups key and all. #1369
  • users module logs a full error message from libpwquality if something is wrong internally.
