I hope gparted 0.4.2 or greater is included in Jaunty. Supporting ext4 installations, but not ext4 partition management reflects a severe lack of polish.

Everyone gets far too worked up about this stuff. :-) I don't think
anyone ever said that there was a moral issue here; we can and do move

gparted 0.4.3 is in Jaunty now.
