Hi Nicholas,

I'm the HFS coder for Parted. I plan to implement HFS/HFS+/HFSx
growing one day, but the actual date isn't really fixed.
It's kind of "when i have more free time"... :)
I'm not aware of any patch that allows to do that right now.

If this is an urgent need and you don't care using (and buying)
proprietary software, there is at least 4 of them that can resize
HFS+ under Os X. You can find their names and prices easily with
a web search engine, and check whether or not they can enlarge HFS+.
