New GRUB2 Build Brings Official Release Closer

,----[ Quote ]
| After being in development for many years, 
| GRUB 1.97 was released this past October as 
| a major development release towards GRUB 
| 2.0. GRUB 2.0 brings forth many new features 
| and has already been picked up by Ubuntu and 
| other Linux distributions. The GRUB 1.97 
| release though was quickly outdone by a 
| point release to address some bugs and a 
| security issue and since then it's been a 
| quiet few months. Robert Millan though has 
| made a Sunday afternoon release of GRUB 
| 1.97.2.


QEMU 0.13 To Focus On New Features

,----[ Quote ]
| This week there was the release of QEMU 
| 0.12.2 (and the subsequent release of KVM-
| QEMU 0.12.2) with support for block 
| migration, but this point release was mostly 
| made up of small fixes and tweaks. IBM's 
| Anthony Liguori though has begun making 
| plans for the next major release of this 
| open-source processor emulator. QEMU 0.13 
| will be the next big release and Anthony is 
| hoping it will be completed by June and 
| boast a large number of new features. 



qemu-kvm-0.12.2 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Today kvm maintainers released qemu-
| kvm-0.12.2 based on upstream qemu 0.12.2.
| qemu-kvm provides the userspace component
| qemu with kvm specific enhancements. This
| means you can use this either with your
| default kernel kvm module or with the most
| recent kvm-kmod kvm kernel module.


GRUB 1.97 released

,----[ Quote ]
| GRUB, also known as the GRand Unified
| Bootloader, is a modular, portable bootloader
| that supports a number of platforms,
| including standard BIOS-based PCs, IEEE-1275
| platforms (such as the OLPC and some
| PowerPC/Sparc64 hardware) and coreboot, the
| free (as in freedom) pre-boot initialization
| framework.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
