GetDevInfo 1.0.8 Released with better APFS support!

Just a quick post this time. GetDevInfo 1.0.8 has been released with a few new features and fixes. Most notably:

  • NVME disk detection unit tests now work on Ubuntu 16.04.
  • There are now nice descriptions for APFS volumes on macOS, including:
    • Physical Stores – the devices or partitions that provide the storage for the containers.
    • Containers – provide a chunk of storage in which to create volumes.
    • Volumes – Filesystems that store user and system data.
  • Note that the APFS descriptions are only available on recent versions of macOS that can provide information on APFS disks.
  • A convenience shortcut to running GetDevInfo from the command line.

Important: Python 2 is no longer supported. Please use GetDevInfo 1.0.6 if you need to use Python 2.

The new version can be downloaded from https://launchpad.net/getdevinfo and https://www.hamishmb.com/html/downloads.php?program_name=getdevinfo.

That’s it for this post, but stay tuned – there are a lot of interesting and different posts coming soon.

About Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty

I'm currently studying for a Computing and IT degree with the Open University, and am a software developer as well. I enjoy coding in Python, C++ (still learning), and Java. Having written 4 open-source programs (hosted on launchpad.net), set up my own website, and started volunteering at Wimborne Model Town to work on their river control system, I still find the time to enjoy cycling, acting, photography, and playing bass guitar. I go climbing every now and then as well. More recently, I wrote my first commercial program, Disk Verifier, and created a PSID Unlocker GUI for Parted Magic. I also create tutorial and other informative videos for Parted Magic LLC.
