Bug Description

A new version, 0.3.2, of the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator, is uploaded today and it works :-)

But the infrastructure around it is not updated:

1. man usb-creator-gtk

2. usb-creator-gtk --version

3. the help text (there is no persistence now) and screenshot in the Ubuntu Software Center and Synaptic

I suggest to upgrade the version information of usb-creator-gtk to 0.3.2 according to the attached file (output from diff)

I think it is time now to fix this 'papercut level' task for the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator alias usb-creator. The version 0.3.2 has been working without any complaints (that I know of) is 16.04 LTS for around 5 months now (counting also the testing period of Xenial before it was released).

  * Change version strings to 0.3.3. (LP: #1537836)
  * Fix PyGI import warnings.

Thanks Marc :-)

I can confirm that this fix has reached to the Yakkety iso files :-)

But I am still waiting for usb-creator-gtk version 0.3.3 to trickle down to the LTS releases Xenial and Trusty :-P
