GNOME 3.26 desk­top to of­fer en­hanced Disk Util­ity

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

While GNOME main­tain­ers are gear­ing up with some ma­jor ad­di­tions to the GNOME 3.26 desk­top en­vi­ron­ment, the lat­est GNOME Disk Util­ity gives us a glimpse of the fea­tures that will en­hance your ex­pe­ri­ence.

GNOME 3.25.2 was pub­lished re­cently, and came with up­dated com­po­nents as well as apps. That same re­lease in­cluded the first de­vel­op­ment re­lease of GNOME Disk Util­ity 3.26.

The new GNOME Disk Util­ity in­cludes mul­ti­ple mount­ing op­tions along with an in­sen­si­tive auto-clear switch for un­used loop de­vices. Also, there are clearer op­tions for en­cryp­tion.

The GNOME team has ad­di­tion­ally pro­vided cer­tain vis­ual changes. The new GNOME Disk Util­ity ver­sion al­lows you to cre­ate an empty disk im­age from the App Menu. Sim­i­larly, the be­hav­iour of the file sys­tem di­a­logue has been im­proved, and the UUID (Uni­ver­sally Unique Iden­ti­fier) of se­lected vol­umes is dis­played by de­fault.

The up­date en­ables disk im­ages to use MIME types. The disk mount­ing func­tion­al­ity in the soft­ware has been im­proved, and now has the abil­ity to auto-clear the han­dling for lock and un­mount but­tons. Be­sides, the lat­est ver­sion prompts users while clos­ing the app.

GNOME Disk Util­ity 3.25.2 is presently avail­able for pub­lic test­ing. It will be re­leased along with GNOME 3.26 later this year. Those want­ing to try the pre­view ver­sion can down­load and com­pile GNOME Disk Util­ity 3.25.2 for their GNU/Linux dis­tro.
