Calamares 3.2.34 released

Nov 16, 2020

This is a quite-short-cycle release in the 3.2 series. There are translation updates, a fix for regressions in the keyboard and plasmalnf modules, and new login-name transliteration.

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):

  • Artem Grinev
  • Gaël PORTAY

Core

  • No core changes

Modules

  • The keyboard module had a regression in which it no-longer painted the keycaps in the keyboard preview. (reported by Vinnie)
  • The plasmalnf module did not set all of the look-and-feel values in the target system. (reported by Bluestar Linux)
  • In the users module, warnings about the strength of the password are now correctly pluralized when possible.
  • In the users module, if ICU is installed, the user’s full name is automatically transliterated to US-ASCII (for some locales; this will need tweaking) so that the login name is acceptable. (Thanks Artem)
