Lion DiskMaker 1.7 is finally available ! This version corrects squashes a few bugs and brings some dramatic improvements compared to version 1.6.3, namely :
- 4 GB USB thumb drive support for OS X Lion 10.7.3 (not tested with 10.7.4 yet). I had to cheat someway though : this is why the AdditionalSpeechVoices.pkg is NOT copied with on the thumb drive. However, you will be proposed to have this package copied on your Desktop after creating the drive.
- Now you can use a volume without formatting the whole disk. So you can now a single partition on a big disk and Lion DiskMaker will not format the whole disk. You should use a dedicated thumb drive though…
- A small bonus if you use a volume bigger than 4 GB : the disk will be visible in the Startup disk System Preference… if your disk was partitioned using GUID partition scheme.
- More localizations : Lion DiskMaker is now translated in Italian (thanks Nicola Castaman), German (thanks Johannes Huber) and simplified Chinese ((thanks Tommy Yang) !
- No more timeouts if a dialog is left open and idle, woohoo !
Remember that you can donate if you wish :)
