Calamares released

Aug 10, 2020

As an illustration that releasing under time pressure and late at night is not a good idea, Calamares follows hot on the heels of 3.2.28. This version fixes regressions in the previous 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 is a hotfix release for #1482 and #1483, where no user was created during installation and a chmod was failing (both resulting in a failed installation). Reported by Jonathan Riddell.

With incidental improvements in SPDX tagging (code licensing) and some new icon options for the welcomeq and localeq modules.
