Hi everyone,

I have released SYSLINUX 3.30 as an official release.  In addition to 
the graphics menu, which is obviously the big thing, this release also 
includes some additional boot discrimination tools from Erwan Velu, as 
well as a refactoring of the RPMS.

Changes in 3.30:
         * libcom32 extended to support graphics mode and graphical console.
         * vesamenu.c32, new graphical version of the Simple
           Menu System, see README.menu.
         * New com32 modules by Erwan Velu do selection based on CPUID
           or PCI devices present.
         * RPM spec: add syslinux-tftpboot module; move syslinux by
           default to the /usr/share/syslinux directory.
         * RPM spec: extlinux is now a separate package.

Version:        3.30
Entered-date:   2006-09-18

Description:    SYSLINUX is a collection of boot loaders for the Linux
                 operating system which operates off Linux ext2/3
                 filesystems, MS-DOS FAT filesystems, network servers
                 using PXE firmware, or from CD-ROMs.  The FAT
                 filesystem version can be installed from DOS, NT, or

                 It includes a sophisticated API for add-on "COM32"
                 modules, including a significant subset of the
                 standard C library.

                 It also includes MEMDISK, a tool to boot legacy
                 operating systems from nontraditional media like PXE
                 or CD-ROM.
