New in version 0.4.5 (May 1st, 2011)

  • Remove Old Entries
  • Provide list of valid GRUB resolutions
  • The other cool feature introduced in 0.4.5 is detection of valid GRUB resolutions. To get a list of GRUB supported resolutions for your setup would require to reboot, enter the GRUB command line and type ‘vbeinfo’. Quite nasty compared to launching the GRUB Editor and selecting a resolution, huh? Damn, you will miss all the dirty work.
  • Other features include the simplification of the default-entry-picking and resolutions-picking UI (as can be seen in the screenshots above), variable substitution using ‘echo’ (Debian/Kubuntu users will no longer see `lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` but the result of this command), a couple of minor fixes in the splash image creation dialog, and last but not least unified save and update actions (you will asked for your password only once when saving – makes more sense).

New in version 0.3.6 (April 4th, 2011)

  • Version 0.3.6 is a small fix release which tuned some things here and there. I had to do it because it fixes a security issue which was accidentally introduced in the previous release (0.3.5). Upgrading is highly encouraged! More info here: http://ksmanis.wordpress.com/2011/04/03/grub2-bootloader-editor-v0-3-6/
