Version: 2.3-8ubuntu5.2 2014-08-05 22:06:40 UTC

  parted (2.3-8ubuntu5.2) precise; urgency=low

  * Added linux-specific-gpt-type.patch: Cherry pick upstream patch to
    add Linux own partition type code GUID for fs partitions on GPT
    disks (LP: #1333462):

      Parted will set PARTITION_LINUX_DATA_GUID as the default partition type
      code on GPT disks, avoiding problems with other tools such as:
        - grub: /usr/lib/os-probes/mounted/20microsoft
        - windows: asking to format an already linux-formatted partition
