Calamares 3.2.35 released

Nov 30, 2020

This is a regular short-cycle release in the 3.2 series. There is now preliminary support for “split” encryption, where the boot partition is not encrypted, but the rest of the system is encrypted.

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):

  • Clarissa Borges
  • Matti Hyttinen

A new kind of issue template has been added for Calamares, for reporting (and adding tests for) usability issues. Thanks to Clarissa for leading that effort.


  • No core changes yet


  • The partition module now supports a not-full-disk-encryption setup, where /boot is not encrypted, but the rest of the system is.
  • The plasmalnf module has been substantially rewritten, so that it can support a QML version of the module in future. The UI has changed a little, and now displays more themes than before.


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.
