1.0.6 (1/13/2021)—This version implements some bug fixes and minor improvements:

    Fixed a bug that could cause a segfault if the GPT header claimed partition entries were oversized.
    Fixed a bug that could cause a crash if the logical partitions on an MBR disk were mis-numbered.
    Fixed a bug that caused 32-bit versions of GPT fdisk for Unix-like OSes (including Linux) to fail when handling disks over 4 TiB in size.
    Fixed FreeBSD compilation, which broke somewhere along the way.
    Renamed the "Freedesktop $BOOT" partition to "XBOOTLDR partition", as the latter is now the official name used in Freedesktop documentation.
    Added several new type codes for Freedesktop definitions (0x8312 through 0x831C).
