Best way is to get it from this page, which has a new link now, http://zeleps.com (please update your bookmarks). Also, you can always find it in any SimTel mirror site, like oak.oakland.edu, or nic.funet.fi, in the directory SimTel/msdos/diskutil under the name presz???.zip. ??? is the current version number. Another good way to locate the latest version is to perform a web or ftp search, using "presz" as the search string (ftp search can be performed at ftpsearch.ntnu.no).
You don't. You can as well backup all your data, use FDISK to repartition your drive, and restore the backed up data in the new partition. But while this can take sometimes many hours, and this only if you have a tape streamer (don't even think about using floppy disks), Partition Resizer will do the job in 5-30 minutes in most cases.
If you are looking for the latest beta version, these releases are posted on the kX Forums. It is only recommended for experienced users to try these experimental releases. Please read our Known Issues page before sending us any questions.
This is done for two reasons. Indeed, moving the data is not necessary for shrinking a partition. But leaving the data in it's original place, results in unused sectors in the partition's FAT, which is lost space. The second reason is that you cannot grow a partition without growing it's FAT, and in order to grow the FAT, you have to move the data.
Yes. You have to make a little empty space in the drive by shrinking the original partition, and then create a small partition and start moving your data in it, while shrinking the old partition and growing the new one. When all the data is in the new partition, change the old partition's cluster size, and move the data back to the old partition using the same technique. This process might take a bit long, since there's a lot of moving and resizing in it.
On the world wide web There is currently only a single-page hypertext version of this document, maintained at http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/C/CL/CLAIRD/ptkFAQ.html (and, in a pinch, http://phaseit.net/claird/comp.lang.perl.tk/ptkFAQ.html). It's possible we'll someday again generate I will happily pass this ptkFAQ.html on to the next engineer willing to take good care of it. I consider my cultivation of this FAQ as temporary, good only until a more suitable candidate offers a good home for it.
The 2004 edition of the 1003.1 standard was published on April 30th 2004, and updates the 2001 edition of the standard to include Technical Corrigendum 1 (TC1) and Technical Corrigendum 2 (TC2). The 2004 Edition is formally known as: IEEE Std 1003.1, 2004 Edition Includes IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, IEEE Std 1003.1-2001/Cor 1-2002 and IEEE Std 1003.1-2001/Cor 2-2004 and its worth noting that within the text the standard is still referred to as IEEE Std 1003.1-2001. POSIX.

This is stable and well tested software, it changes if major security or usability fixes are incorporated. This is where packages that will be released as the next 'stable' are placed; they've had some testing in unstable but they may not be completely fit for release yet. This distribution is updated more often than 'stable', but not more often than 'unstable'. This is the version currently under development; it is updated continuously.
The program itself works fine with these, since it doesn't consider them as drives. Partition Resizer scans ONLY physical drives for partitions. But it shouldn't be run from a compressed drive that resides in a partition that will be resized or moved. If you're uncertain about that, just run Partition Resizer from a bootable floppy disk. Absolutely. Long filenames are not affected, since the program doesn't mess with directory and file descriptors.
Depends. It does not run under Windows NT/2000/XP, and it does not resize NTFS partitions, but it can move Windows NT/2000/XP partitions and it does not damage your Windows NT/2000/XP installation.
You have to boot from a bootable DOS floppy disk to run Partition Resizer under NT/2000/XP. In Windows XP you can create a bootable floppy disk from Windows Explorer by inserting the floppy in the drive, right-clicking the drive, selecting 'Format...' and checking the 'Create an MS-DOS startup disk' option. Then copy Partition Resizer in that disk and proceed as described in README.1ST.
I really do not want to invest time in creating a fancy user interface, although it would simplify a few things both for me and the users. If I get bored enough, I'll probably do something about it. The new site was created by Stathis Sideris (http://www.satspeed.gr/~im), to whom I am eternally in debt for uplifting my sorry excuse for a site. My artistic nature is comparable to that of a colorblind hedgehog (in a bag).
This is an option I consider, although it would be a bit complicated. This is because all the changes that Partition Resizer does to a hard disk are extremely dangerous (although possible - beware!) to be done while under a multitasking environment. Therefore, even if the user makes all his selections under windows, the program core must be run in DOS mode. I am considering the possibility of a Windows interface that will co-exist with the current DOS interface (probably in the same EXE file).

Version 4.4 is the latest STABLE version; it was released in September, 2001. This is also the latest RELEASE version. Briefly explained, -STABLE is aimed at the ISP or other corporate user who wants stability and a low change count over the wizzy new features of the latest -CURRENT snapshot. Releases can come from either branch, but you should only use -CURRENT if you are sure that you are prepared for its increased volatility (relative to -STABLE, that is).

Jingle please: Gnus 5.10 is released, get it while it's hot! As well as the step in version number is rather small, Gnus 5.10 has tons of new features which you shouldn't miss. The current release (5.10.8) should be at least as stable as the latest release of the 5.8 series.
