GParted 0.28.0 Adds Partial Read/Write Support for LUKS Encrypted Filesystems

GParted 0.28.0 comes approximately four months after the release of GParted 0.27.0, and the most important feature it introduces is partial read/write support for LUKS (Linux Unified Key Setup) encrypted filesystems, allowing users to resize or copy a file system enclosed in a LUKS volume. Additionally, it allows the move of closed LUKS volumes. GParted 0.28.0 is quite a small update, and the second feature it introduces is the ability to detect ISO9660 filesystems. It appears that various minor bug fixes have also been included in this new version, along with updates for several language translations. For example, there’s a fix to show the mount column for encrypted filesystems that aren’t mounted.
