GNOME MultiWriter 3.15.1 released

Richard Hughes released first version of GNOME MultiWriter. He made post about project, but in release more cool features and changes.

GNOME MultiWriter can be used to write an ISO file to multiple USB devices at once. Once an .img or .iso file has been chosen it can be written to an unlimited number of USB devices simultaneously. Supported drive sizes are between 1Gb and 32Gb.
