Request for gparted to be bumped to current in Jaunty for ext4 support.

I have started to hear problems thru the Jaunty testing forum on
ubuntuforums.org with the lack of support in gparted for ext4. There is
a general bug report about gparted ext4 support at:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gparted/+bug/137872 and as
gparted is currently at .43 at sourceforge.org, the PPA listed in the
thread at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1076479 is at .42-1
and "official" Jaunty is at .39-1......I request that we exempt gparted
from feature freeze to include support for ext4.
This will be very needed to move forward with ext4. It looks like ext4
needs to be at least optional (if not default) as it has better
feature-set, better error correction and faster transfer rates--which
helps Ubuntu meet faster speed for the end user.
I have been very active in promoting ext4, so my opinions are
biased---but I really believe that ext4 is the future for at least the
next few years, so getting ahead of the curve is of paramount importance
for Ubuntu & the Linux community in general.
