gparted 0.33.0-1

MX comes with gparted 0.25.0-1 which works fine, but it doesn't support creating crypto_LUKS partitions as I'm pretty sure newer versions do. Instead, you have to install Zulucrypt and use it to make a new LUKS partition. That works fine too, but it would be nice if you could create encrypted partitions using the tools that MX comes with, huh? Plus IIRC you can resize LUKS partitions within the gparted GUI instead of having to do that at the command-line.

I searched all of the repos, backports and flatpacks and the only gparted available is our trusty old 0.25 friend in Debian Stable. I looked at the list of dependencies in 0.33's README and don't see anything particularly whackadoodle that would make it not work in MX, such as needing GTK3 for example.

OS: MX-18.1 x64, Kernel: 4.9.0-8-amd64 x86_64, CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2.6GHz, GPU: AMD RS780 (Radeon HD 3200), Mobo: ASRock A780GM-LE, BIOS: AMI P1.50 (5/25/2010), HDs: WD 500GB+SG Barracuda 1TB, Memory: 2x4GB 800MHz DDR2
