Calamares 3.1.11 is out

The Calamares team is happy to announce the immediate availability of Calamares 3.1.11, an incremental bugfix release in the 3.1 series.

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.

Calamares 3.1.11 is an incremental bugfix release in the 3.1 series, continuing the every-other-week cadence established in 2017. It fixes one newly reported issue and introduces a new module:

  • (issue) Some poorly-configured systems cannot reliably set the hardware clock (RTC). Previously this was an error which would abort the entire installation. Calamares now ignores the error.
  • (new module) It is possible to select a KDE Plasma look-and-feel theme from within Calamares, which will be applied to the running desktop (as a form of preview) and the target system. Enable the plasmalnf module. Documentation on the module is available in plasmalnf.conf

If you experience an issue with Calamares, please tell us all about it on the Calamares issue tracker.
