gpt disk labeling to be able to support partitions/filesystems above

GNU GRUB 1.92 (Development)
by Yoshinori K. Okuji - Mon, Dec 26th 2005 07:05 PDT
About: GNU GRUB is a Multiboot loader. It was derived from GRUB. It
is an attempt to produce a bootloader for IBM PC-compatible machines
that has both the capability to be friendly to beginning or otherwise
non-technically interested users and the flexibility to help experts in
diverse environments. It is compatible with FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and
Linux. It supports Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP and OS/2 via chain-loaders. It
has a menu interface and a command-line interface.
Changes: This release adds support for the GPT and Linux/ADFS partition
table formats, a new command "play" to play an audio file on a PC,
support for BASH-like scripting, and support for Apple HFS+ filesystems.
