We do have a beta3 branch in the repo, but it's acting more like a tag,
I guess, no changes have been made to it.

I tried the new partman, and it works great. Wow, that's a lot of work!
My only quibble is with the use of the term Wizard, as in "Use the
Wizard to partition". I don't think wizard is a proper noun, so should
not be capitalised, and I don't see how this is better than the old
"Automatically partition". It assumes that the user is familiar with
windows wizard-type things (and doesn't hate them ;-), and seems overly
cute to me.
