Most if not all of the changes in 2.4 were already included in the
Ubuntu version.  We are currently blocked on moving to 3.x until partman
is rewritten to work with the new, non backward compatible libparted.

  please package newer upstream release of parted

Bug description:
  Parted package version is 2.3

  3 new versions are out since 2.3 (2.4 3.0 and 3.1).

  Why not upgrading it ? Many work have been done on EPT and that can be
  a good improvement for everybody.

  another things : 2.4 default align to 1MiB, that can be a HUGE boost in performance for every disk with 4K block. (gparted do the same since ages).
  (and I can't list all of them)
