Calamares hotfix released

Jun 23, 2020

The Calamares team is as surprised as your are that it announces the immediate availability of Calamares, a mostly-hotfix release.

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):

  • Anke Boersma
  • Gaël PORTAY


  • Welcome to Azerbaijani translations. These are available in two variations, Azerbaijani and Azerbaijani (Azerbaijan). Wikipedia Azerbaijani has a nice overview.
  • Warnings while building with Qt 5.15 have been much reduced.


  • partitioning has one case of undefined behavior (UB) due to a missing integer-initialization. (Thanks Gaël)
  • keyboardq QML module now works correctly. (Thanks Anke)
