Version 0.6.96 of the Multiboot specification has been released.

Multiboot is a specification document which attempts to unify bootloading
across Operating System kernels.  Its  reference implementation, GNU GRUB,
is the most widely deployed free  software bootloader, as a consequence of
this and its clean, legacy-free design, it is a widely adopted specification
for new OS kernel projects.

Among a number of editorial improvements, this version of Multiboot includes
a rewrite of the `multiboot.h' header,  which has been  imported  from GRUB
sources.  This header is more  complete than the previous  version, and is
licensed under permissive terms as a compromise to foster the development of
Multiboot-compliant kernels.

Previous versions of Multiboot were released with the same source  tarball
as  GRUB Legacy.  However,  as GRUB  Legacy is  obsolete (we  have moved
development to GRUB 2 for several years), and no future release is planned,
Multiboot is now provided in a separate source tarball.

A source tarball for the new release can be found at:

and its GPG detached signature [*]:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify multiboot-0.6.96.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys DEA2C38E

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:

  Autoconf 2.61
  Automake 1.10.1
