We are pleased to announce the release of version 3.1.0 of iPartition. This is a major update to version 3.0.1.

NEW: This version now has the ability to format NTFS volumes.

iPartition changes from 3.0.1:

*Fixed a rare crash that could occur when attaching or detaching disks.
*Fixed an issue with moving a partition manually when an earlier queued operation was to create a different partition.
*Prevent iPartition from recognising a disk with a FAT file system but no partition map as having an MBR partition map.
*Fixed a crash that could occur when trying to run a repair operation on a PowerPC machine on a disk with a GUID partition scheme.
*Fixed a problem with resizing a partition after you have just created it (but before committing).
*Now has the ability to “expand” GUID partition maps, or rather, reclaim space inadvertently marked as inaccessible (by a third party utility).
*iPartition will no longer list fseventsd as a process using a volume when it is unable to unmount.
*iPartition will now correctly display the number of free clusters for FAT volumes over a certain size.
*The workaround for Leopard's AHCI driver bug is now disabled when running from 10.5.3 or later.
*Application is now signed. See Wikipedia for what this is.
*iPartition now uses American spelling of “Organization”.
*Fixed a crash that could occur when changing the partition type and trying to format.
*iPartition will no longer hang when using assistive applications (or applications that use the same accessibility APIs such as RapidoWrite).
*iPartition will no longer hang when it encounters an unusual boot.ini file on a Windows volume.
*iPartition will no longer write an invalid MBR on a GUID partition scheme when it encounters a partition that starts beyond 2 TB.
*Fixed some small memory leaks.
*Fixed a hang that could occur after committing operations when the network connection had been lost.
*Fixed a display issue where warnings would incorrectly remain after committing operations.
*iPartition can now format NTFS partitions.
*iPartition will no longer allow resizing partitions marked with a fault tolerant type (they are not supported).
*iPartition will now update the partition type if the partition is formatted as FAT16.
*Fixed a problem with resizing partitions after formatting them.
*If you try and resize and format a partition, iPartition will now perform a destructive resize (saving time).
*The option to format a legacy HFS file system is now disabled for partitions larger than the limit (256 GB).
*Fixed the licensing code to work on machines that do not have a proper serial number.
*Added a check for an HFS inconsistency that Apple's tools do not detect and caused iPartition to crash upon encountering it.
*Fixed a crash/hang that could occur when iPartition encountered a volume formatted on an older version of Windows (pre XP).
*Improved NTFS integrity checking.
*Fixed a crash that could occur with volume names ending in certain special characters.
*Fixed a hang that could occur when encountering a disk access error (e.g. a bad block).
*iPartition will no longer format some FAT volumes with an incorrect number of clusters.
*iPartition now chooses a FAT cluster size in a similar way to what Windows would. This should help avoid problems that OS X has with FAT volumes with a very large number of clusters.
