This update brings several exciting improvements to Rufus, making it even easier and safer to create bootable USB drives. Here's a quick rundown of what's new:

Improved Bootability and Compatibility:

  • Better validation for Windows and Linux ISOs: Rufus can now check your ISO files for errors before creating the bootable USB drive, ensuring a smoother boot process.
  • Easier access to advanced options (for power users): Hold down the Alt key while launching Rufus to access the "Use Rufus MBR" option, useful for specific boot scenarios.
  • Fixes for Linux persistence: Creating bootable drives with persistence (saving changes made during boot) is now more reliable for some Linux distributions like Mint and Ubuntu 24.04.

Enhanced Security and Performance:

  • Multiple security vulnerabilities addressed: Thanks to Mansour Gashasbi, Rufus is now more secure than ever.
  • Faster ISO copying: Rufus now copies ISO files more efficiently, reducing creation times.
  • Improved partition handling: Internal improvements ensure better handling of partitions on your USB drive.
  • No more WUE nag screen (Windows only): If you're already using a custom unattend.xml file, Rufus won't prompt you about Windows Update Experience (WUE) settings.

Under the Hood:

  • Updated GRUB version: Rufus now uses the latest version of GRUB (2.12) for improved compatibility.
  • Always using the best NTFS driver: Rufus now consistently uses the reliable ntfs-3g driver for NTFS formatting, ensuring better compatibility.

Overall, this update makes Rufus more robust and user-friendly for creating bootable USB drives.
