GRUB2 Bootloader Editor v0.5.0

GRUB2 Bootloader Editor version 0.5.0 was just released. Highlights of this release are:

Easily recover GRUB2 (from a Live CD):

Installing(=Recovering) GRUB

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:

Disable memtest entries

You may now further customise your GRUB2 menu by selecting whether or not memtest entries will be generated.

Translations:

In this release you will also find translations for the following languages, thanks to the corresponding KDE translation teams:

  • Danish
  • German
  • Estonian
  • Hungarian
  • Dutch
  • Portuguese
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Swedish
  • Ukrainian

Other features:

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 our KDE-Apps.org page. Enjoy :-D
