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.
