I didn't mean to stop you.  I just pointed out that there are regressions, and
that I don't think it's a good idea to release with (significant) regressions.
But if you disagree, it's not a big concern to me.  :-)

Anyway, the regressions are still there.  Although we're closer to fixing them:

  - I fixed one of the known problems with LVM/RAID, but others (2, I think)

  - Apple hardware still won't boot, but Pavel has put quite an effort in
    tracing this and IIRC he's very close to a fix.

Besides, I'm afraid I tell everyone to use CVS rather than 1.95, since 1.95 has
much worse problems that affect a wider audience; the ones I fixed in my first
commit (ignore 1st, 2nd breaks all udev users, 3rd breaks all users without
floppy drive):

        * util/i386/pc/ Skip menu.lst when removing

        * util/i386/pc/getroot.c: Don't recurse into dotdirs (e.g. ".static").

        * util/i386/pc/grub-mkdevicemap.c: Make sure the floppy device exists
        before adding it to

So perhaps it's a good idea to release 1.96 with known regressions after all.
