WxFixBoot 3.0.2 and GetDevInfo 1.0.10 Released!

After several iterations of GetDevInfo, I’ve finally fixed all the bugs that were affecting NVME support in WxFixBoot. These changes also benefit all other programs that use GetDevInfo. The following has changed in WxFixBoot:

  • Python 2 is no longer supported.
  • Ubuntu 20.04 is now supported.
  • Various potential crashes with LVM disks have been fixed.
  • Various fixes to add proper NVME SSD support.
  • GRUB2-BIOS boot partition is now detected more reliably.
  • Various other smaller bugs and fixes.

Various changes have been made in GetDevInfo over the last few iterations to make this happen. After all this work, I hope you enjoy the fruits of my labor, and I hope this gives you an even more reliable experience using WxFixBoot. The new version can be downloaded from my website and Launchpad.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned for more 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.
