5/7/08 - Parted Magic 2.2.

,----[ Quote ]
| This is another update/bugfix in the 2.0 series. I dropped VisParted because
| strong development is coming from the GParted camp once again. Recent updates
| to PCManFM have made some new things possible on the desktop and improved the
| look and feel. All mountable partitions and cdroms are fully supported from
| the desktop now, so it's never been easier to access files from Parted Magic.
| You will find most of the bad bugs and annoyances from 2.1 have been fixed.
