• Support a new installation mode that uses dd to copy the iso directly to the device. This method tends to be more reliable than the non-destructive approach.
  • Added a new --dd command-line option
  • DVD iso support with the 'overwrite device' method
  • Improved UI layout
  • Added AppData metadata
  • The --calculcate-liveos-checksum now works on Linux
  • Fixed the code that automatically populates the available releases
  • Switched to use polkit on Linux instead of consolehelper for authentication
  • Translation updates
  • Improved error handling

installed liveusb-creator-3.13.1-1.fc21 x86_64 on F21 Workstation Final TC4, created Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-21-1.iso on usb flash media and installed Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-21-1.iso on an external disk. Choice was "overwrite device (dd)". All worked and works fine.

Drags in polkit-gnome on KDE installations (which is particularly bad because liveusb-creator is installed on the KDE spin, so ALL KDE installations get polluted with polkit-gnome on updates): #1171583
