GRUB2 Editor v0.6.4

After 15 months, GRUB2 Editor received a new release today. Highlights of this release are: GRUB submenu support (introduced in GRUB 2.00), LibQApt 2.x support (for removing old entries), proper check for memtest entries and various [bug] fixes. All in all, updating to the latest version is highly recommended.

GRUB2 Editor v0.5.5

GRUB2 Editor received another bugfix release today. This is mostly a boring release: no fancy new features so you may as well skip reading.

Changelog:

v.0.5.5 (09/01/2012)

——————–

*ADDED: Experimental BURG support (only commands shared with GRUB2).
*ADDED: Option to disable Plymouth (Advanced -> Linux Kernel Arguments).
*FIXED: Fedora/openSUSE: the GRUB installation is now properly detected.
*FIXED: Encoding issue (UTF-8 encoding is now supported).
*FIXED: A QPackageKit backend bug where previous results were returned.

Please note that BURG “experimental” support is barely tested. The only testing I performed was whether it crashes or not.
