Calamares 3.2.59 released

May 29, 2022

This is a regular short-cycle release. There are a handful of bugfixes and one tiny little UI feature. Calamares 3.2 development is now bugfix only. The working branch calamares is now for version 3.3.

  • Arjen Balfoort

This is the final release of Calamares 3.2 where the release is from the calamares branch – that is, where the primary development branch is also the branch being released regularly. Future releases of the 3.2 series are bugfix-only, and no new feature development or translations are expected. This is also the final release done as work-work by the current maintainer.

Core

  • Prep-work for moving the About Calamares button to the panels, rather than keeping it in the Welcome module. The about information is somewhat more flexible now, so that a new maintainer can be added easily without frustrating translators.
  • Translations for the (QML) slideshow were not being loaded correctly. The log is now somewhat more informative when that fails.

Modules

  • fstab can now be configured to put /tmp on a tmpfs, and this can depend on it being on an SSD or not. Options applicable to /tmp can be configured separately as well. #1818 (Thanks Arjen)
  • partition now has some support for re-using LUKS partitions. (Thanks Arjen)
  • partition will cycle out a LUKS key if all the key slots are in use and a new key is added, rather than crashing the installer. (Thanks Arjen)
