Description Marcos Mello 2013-08-10 08:17:54 EDT

0.8.7 (7/8/2013):

- Modified Mac version so that it can work on /dev/rdisk* devices as well
  as /dev/disk* devices. The result is that, when using the /dev/rdisk*
  devices, the partition table can sometimes be re-read without removing
  the disk or rebooting.

- Added "-a" option to cgdisk to use a ">" symbol to the left of the
  selected partition rather than ncurses highlighting.

- Modified "converting MBR to GPT" message to clarify that the conversion
  is being held in memory, since some people have mistakenly assumed that a
  "gdisk -l" operation will change an MBR disk to a GPT disk without

- Added partition type code for freedesktop.org's proposed $BOOT partition
  (bc13c2ff-59e6-4262-a352-b275fd6f7172; GPT fdisk type code EA00)

- Adjusted alignment code when using -n or -N in sgdisk to keep the
  requested partition size (if specified using +###{MGT} terminology)
  as the requested value rather than relative to the requested start
  point. This gives you the requested partition size rather than be
  slightly smaller if sgdisk needs to adjust the start point up a bit and
  it prevents gaps from appearing between partitions if several are created
  in succession using automatic placement of the start point.

- Fixed small bugs in gdisk_test.sh script.

- Removed stray debug message that would appear when reading MBR disks.

- Added partition type code for Intel Rapid Start partition (GUID
  D3BFE2DE-3DAF-11DF-BA40-E3A556D89593, code 8400), used by systems that
  implement Intel's Rapid Start technology. See
  http://blog.adios.tw/2012/10/funtoo-linux-and-intel-rapid-start.html or

- Added partition type code for Haiku BFS (GUID
  42465331-3BA3-10F1-802A-4861696B7521; code EB00).
