Clonezilla Live, a Linux distribution based on DRBL, Partclone, and udpcast that allows users to do bare metal backup and recovery, is now at version 2.2.4-1 and is ready for testing.
The Clonezilla team has just released a new development build for this Linux distribution and the developers have made a few small modifications.
“The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Aug/19),” reads the official announcement.
According to the changelog, the drbl package has been updated to version 2.9.16-drbl1 and clonezilla has been updated to version 3.10.27-drbl1.
Unfortunately, the Linux kernel hasn't been updated in this latest release, but users should expect a kernel upgrade in one of the upcoming releases.
Clonezilla Live is a Linux distribution that does only one thing: bare metal backup and recovery. It's very similar to other, older pieces of cloning software, such as True Image or Norton Ghost.
A complete list of changes, improvements, and fixes can be found in the official announcement. You can download Clonezilla Live 2.2.4-1 right now from Softpedia.
Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
