Patrick Verner announced today the immediate availability of Parted Magic 4.0, a Slackware-based Linux distribution designed to help users with hard disk partitioning and recovery tasks. Parted Magic 4.0 is, once again, a special version... because Patrick Verner decided to change its appearance and to introduce fantastic features, such as:

· Device Mapper RAID partitioning support;
· Replaced initrd with initramfs;
· Ability to boot TWM, Xvesa and GParted at 800x600x4 with the "Low RAM" option;
· Reduced the size of the ISO image to about 70 MB;
· Ability to "Save Session" with the ISO CD image (the operation requires a CD-RW);
· initramfs can be merged for module installation, in the PXE version;
· Ability to load .deb packages at boot time.

"I can't say enough how grateful I am for this new computer you all have given me! I can compile a kernel in 15 minutes compared to an hour with my 8 shiny Intel i7 processors." - said Patrick Verner in the official release announcement.
