Default Is wrong 4k sector alignment still an issue?

I'm getting a 2TB drive which uses 4kB sectors instead of 512 byte ones.
I suppose by now everything will "just work" and the various tools
will now by default create correctly aligned partitions?

Most of them should. Latest fdisk and gdisk should align to 1MB and
latest parted etc. should as well.
