  • DietPi-Imager It is now possible to skip the 7z archive creation but have the raw image file created only. Many thanks to @DrCWO for requesting this feature: MichaIng/DietPi#5687
  • DietPi-Imager It is now possible to shrink the originating image’s/drive’s filesystems and partitions only, instead of creating a new image file from it by passing/exporting the variable SHRINK_ONLY=1.
  • DietPi-Imager The dietpi-fs_partition_resize.service is now enabled automatically on the source image/drive before it is shrunk. This way it is assured that the shrunk original system as well as the newly created image will have their root partition and filesystem expanded automatically on next boot. Many thanks to @DrCWO for suggesting this enhancement: MichaIng/DietPi#5672
