Basically I took a look at this, and it is the standard libparted, which
is linked against the standard libparted1.6-dev so there is no, special
version of parted, AFAICS

so what needs to be done is the upstream version of libparted needs to
be modified to recognise the new device mapper for 2.6. So until then,
lvm2 cannot be used with the debian-installer. Which means that if you
want to use 2.6 and lvm you need to use 2.4 to install the system and
then upgrade to 2.6 and lvm2, which I do not consider a big ask for

the lvm root stuff. I will test and I am quite happy to test the daily
builds to see it by the next beta we can have the root file system on a
