Clonezilla Live 2.2.2-29 Distro for Backup Features Linux Kernel 3.13.6-1

The latest Clonezilla version can be downloaded from Softpedia

Clonezilla Live 2.2.2-29, a Linux distribution based on DRBL, Partclone, and udpcast that allows users to do bare metal backup and recovery, is now ready for testing.

The Clonezilla developers are still fixing some minor problems with the distro, but a new stable version must be really close.

“The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Mar/24),” reads the official changelog. Also, the Linux kernel has been upgraded to a more recent one, 3.13.6-1. Not that the previous one was too old.

Other smaller changes include an update for drbl, which is now at version 2.7.40-drbl1, and an update for clonezilla, which is now at version 3.9.48-drbl1.

Also, a couple of fixes have been implemented as well. Autoproductname should now filter the characters “()[]{}” and the paramger “ocs_prompt_mode” takes effect when saving an image.

Clonezilla Live is a Linux distribution that does only one thing: bare metal backup and recovery. It's very similar to other older 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 2.2.2-29 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.
