Parted Magic 6.0

The latest parted magic 6.0 is now officially released and it has several interesting components such as better hardware detection (due to newer kernel), removal of kernel modules, udev, and firmware which is now moved to initramfs, nice graphical boot menu is now removed and replaced with a favor of a very basic one

Since it incorporates quite big changes, they issued a major upgrade, so that's why you see 6.0 release instead of 5.0.x series.

Here's the complete updated components: cryptsetup-1.2.0, lvm2-2.02.84, nwipe-0.03 (downgraded), util-linux-2.19, linux-, udev-165, btrfs-progs-20110327, glibc-2.13, jfsutils-1.1.15, usbutils-002, xfsprogs-3.1.4, squashfs-4.2, simpleburn- (downgraded), busybox-1.18.4, memtest86-4.20, ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs-2011.4.12
