Sorry, if you get this message twice, there is some overlapping
in the newsgroup subscription.
1. There is a "new" version of Partition Manager 2.40 available at
my site: http://www.users.intercom.com/~ranish/part
It is identical to the version 2.38 latest beta, which has proven
to be very stable by having no bug reports nor any other problems
for almost a year (since nobody has reported ANY bugs concerning
part.exe functionality other than missing features, I assume that
there aren't any bugs nor problems).
Version 2.40 is not even a recompile, I just went into the binary
and edited version string.
2. There is a new beta version called 2.41. It has same functionality
for the GUI part as 2.40, but I have included the command line
interface similar to the gdisk from Symantec, so you might want to
check that one out:
-> partbeta.zip (2.41)
Version 2.41 includes version of executable which simulate
partitioning process on files rather than actual disks.
3. Regarding the mailing lists: as you know eGroups have been changed
to Yahoo Groups. The new mailing list addresses are:

If you have seen this before March, 2000 version then it could be
A20 memory line proble, which I have fixed back in March. If there
were any other issues after that, I must have missed the posting.
Then, please, let me know and I will remove word "stable" from the
partman home page and will try to fix it.

To answer your question, about the code. I am trying to get back
to the Partition Manager code after almost six month and it looks
scarry to me. However, if anyone would like to get a copy e-mail
me and I will send itto you, but I must warn you it is a complete
Thank you for the patience,
