bug#37011: parted-3.2.153 released [alpha]

Here it is, the much anticipated, long awaited, parted release for 2019!

This is currently alpha, I'd appreciate it if distribution users could
give it a thorough testing and give me some feedback. I'll be releasing
this in Fedora Rawhide this afternoon.

Note that the NEWS file is not completely updated. There are just
too many commits since the last release.

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify parted-3.2.153.tar.xz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 117E8C168EFE3A7F

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.1
  Gnulib v0.1-2799-g6430babe4
  Gperf 3.1


* Noteworthy changes in release 3.2.153 (2019-08-12) [alpha]

  Parted now recognizes NVMe devices, NVDIMM, and RAM drives.

** Bug Fixes

  Fix atari disklabel false positives by probing other labels first.

  Fix resizepart to adjust the end to be -1 sector when using iec
  power of 2 units so that the next partition can start immediately
  following the new end, just like mkpart does.

  Fix set and disk_set to not crash when there are no flags to set.

  Fix a udev cookie leak when using resizepart on device-mapper devices.

  Fix a gettext crash/error sometimes when using localized languages.

  Fix fat resize to preverve boot code, and thus not render the
  filesystem unreconized by Windows.

  Fix rescue command: the rescue command often failed to find
  filesystems due to leaving on cylinder alignment.

  libparted-fs-resize: Prevent crash resizing FAT file systems with very
  deep directories with path names over 512 bytes long.

  Use 512b sector size when communicating with device-mapper. Fixes
  problems with partitions being created too small on dm devices
  with sector sizes > 5121b

  Don't crash in the disk_set command when a disk label is not found

  libparted-fs-resize: Prevent crash resizing FAT16 file systems.

  libparted-fs-resize: Prevent crash resizing FAT16 file systems.

  If the user specifies start/end of the partition as cylinders
  and a cylinder has a size which is power of 2, then such address
  does not trigger exact placement.

  mkpart: Allow negative start value when FS-TYPE is not given
