GRUB2 Bootloader Editor version 0.5.0 was just released. Highlights of this release are:
Easily recover GRUB2 (from a Live CD):
Are you unable to boot your Linux installation because you accidentally installed Windows after Linux? No problem! Boot from a Live CD of your Linux distribution, install the GRUB2 Editor using one of the many provided packages and restore GRUB in just a couple of seconds. It’s really easy! (More info)
Disable memtest entries:
You may now further customise your GRUB2 menu by selecting whether or not memtest entries will be generated.
In this release you will also find translations for the following languages, thanks to the corresponding KDE translation teams:
- Portuguese (Brazil)
Other new features include:
- Warn the user when trying to uninstall the current kernel.
- Manually find missing configuration files which are needed.
- Recover initial settings (undoes all changes performed by this tool).
I estimate that the next release will be in about 2 months from now, due to restraining schedule.
As always you may get binary packages for most major distributions (Arch, Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE, Ubuntu) from the SourceForge page. Enjoy 😀
