An update of Calamares to the latest upstream bugfix release, version 3.1.8.

Notable changes since 3.1.0:

  • Improved salting for user passwords. (This is a minor security fix, see https://calamares.io/calamares-cve/ for details.)
  • Crash on startup when no installation-devices are found has been fixed.
  • Support for very small screens (800x600) is improved.
  • Hostnames may be up to 63 characters in length, conforming to RFC1123 and various LDAP schemas.
  • System language, locale settings and keyboard are now guessed based on installer language and location.
  • The .desktop file (menu entry) is now translated.
  • Python job modules can be translated now.
  • The Summary page now shows language and number-formats information.
  • The Quit and Done buttons now have a tooltip explaining what they will do.
  • If installation fails, the system won’t reboot automatically on the last Calamares page.
  • Fat32 filesystems are now handled correctly even when misspelled (thanks Kai Hohmen).
  • Filesystem sizes are now shown with an MB suffix (thanks Lisa Vitolo).
  • A race condition leading to crashes when starting Calamares has been resolved.
  • The Packages module has been seriously revamped; it is now also translatable.
  • Translations in the partitioning module have been improved.
  • Encrypted swap is now correctly configured.
  • Minor visual improvements.
  • (bug) Netinstall would crash if the returned netinstall-groups data was empty.
  • (regression vs. 3.0.x) UI glitch: netinstall would display the description as the name (ignoring the actual name) and show an empty description.
  • Use more support code from KPMCore, instead of doing it ourselves.

3.1.7 fixes the following regressions:

  • Netinstall was no longer compatible with the packages module (regression in 3.1.4), which prevented any users of netinstall from installing packages from online repositories.
  • The bootloader installation for EFI systems used the wrong name for the bootx64.efi (or bootia32.efi) files (regression in 3.1.1). The file was installed as grubx64.efi (or grubia32.efi). Some firmwares (in particular, the one in VirtualBox) are very picky about the name of that file and expect it to be bootx64.efi (or bootia32.efi), the installed system should now boot without tweaking on those systems again.

3.1.8 adds the following fixes: (bug) Netinstall would crash if the returned netinstall-groups data was empty. (regression vs. 3.0.x) UI glitch: netinstall would display the description as the name (ignoring the actual name) and show an empty description. (regression) GeoIP data had already been read, don't read it twice. Use more support code from KPMCore, instead of doing it ourselves.
