Calamares 3.2.55 released

Apr 11, 2022

This is a regular short-cycle release. There are a handful of bugfixes, new translations and one new feature.

This release contains contributions from (alphabetically by first name):

  • vtriolet (new contributor! Welcome!)


  • readTargetFile() did not properly return all the lines of the target file. #1918 (thanks vtriolet)


  • users module has rearranged configuration for setting the hostname. Legacy settings are preserved, but produce a warning. Please see users.conf for details.
  • users module has a new hostname.location setting, Transient, which will force the installed system to transient-hostname-setting by removing the file /etc/hostname.
  • users module has a new hostname.template setting, which allows some tweaking of how the hostname suggestion is constructed. In particular, it can be configured to use the current hostname (whatever that may be). See the example users.conf for details on available keys.
