    DFSee version 11.2 has been released today

    It has some significant new features for FAT, GPT/EFI and MAC:
    - Resizing a FAT(32) partition can now make it larger as well as
    smaller, so you can finally EXPAND your FAT32 partitions too.
    - It correctly reads and interprets the GPT partitioning info
    so you see the actual partitions, and not just the MBR-guard.
    - It understands more of the MAC HFS+ filesystem, including its
    allocation information so the 'alloc' command and smart imaging
    or cloning now work for HFS+ too.
    - FreeDOS for the Bootable CD/USB-stick has been upgraded to use
    the latest 2012 kernel and disk drivers

    And of course there are many more small fixes and enhancements ...

    DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
    filesystem and disk analysis, some file recovery and UNDELETE
    and smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks.
