Calamares 3.2.3 released

The Calamares team is happy to announce the availability of Calamares 3.2.3, the third update in the features-and-functionality series of Calamares 3.2.x. This is a bugfix release, with no configuration changes for review.

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):

  • aliveafter1000

Core

There are no core changes in this release.

Modules

  • partition Fixed bug where, during detection of existing systems, the existing system partitions may be mounted and then files deleted. This is a limited version of the patch from aliveafter1000 that will be in 3.2.4, which tries harder to mount filesystems read-only and unmodifiable.
  • locale It was possible to set the installer and system language (e.g. to German) while the global storage value for locale remained set to English. Then no localization packages are installed (see feature ${LOCALE} in packages.conf). Reported downstream in Netrunner.

If you experience an issue with Calamares, please tell us all about it on the Calamares issue tracker. For a full change list, or the full list of issues closed with this release, please see the Calamares code repository. Work towards the next release continues.
