I'm happy to announce the release of GRUB 1.95. This is the sixth 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 <>.

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

Here is the relevant NEWS:

New in 1.95 - 2006-10-15:

* Number partitions from 1 instead of 0. For instance, the first
  partition of "hd0" is now "hd0,1" but not "hd0,0".

* grub-probefs is renamed to grub-probe, and supports printing a
  guessed OS device name and a GRUB drive name.

* RAID and LVM support is added.

* New command, echo.

* The disk API is changed to support 64-bit addressing.

* A TGA loader is added for the video API.
