I'm happy to announce the release of GRUB 1.94. This is the fifth of
our prereleases leading up to GRUB 2.0. We encourage you to try it, as
we have done a significant amount of work towards GRUB 2. Note that this 
release is mainly for developers who are willing to contribute to our 
project. If you need a working solution immediately, you'd better to stick to 
GRUB Legacy at the moment.

The source distribution is available from <ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/grub/>.

Send any questions, ideas, bug reports to <address@hidden>.

Here is the relevant NEWS:

New in 1.94 - 2006-06-04:

* Fix several serious bugs in HFS+.

* Add experimental EFI support. Chainloading and Linux loading are
  supported at the moment.

* Add a new command "blocklist" to show a block list.

* Use --with-platform to specify a boot environment. For now, efi,
  ieee1275 and pc are supported.

* Use the filename "kernel.elf" instead of "grubof" on ieee1275.

* Install GRUB into pkglibdir instead of pkgdatadir.

* Support environmental variables. You can export variables by the
  command "export".

* Remove the commands "default" and "timeout". They are now variables.

* Add the commands "source" and "." to include a file.

* Implement experimental Video API and a new terminal "gfxterm" based
  on the Video API.
