I have just released SYSLINUX 3.31.  It is functionally identical to 
SYSLINUX 3.31-pre4.

Changes in 3.31:
         * The simple menu system (menu.c32 and vesamenu.c32) now
           support loading more than one configuration file at a time,
           using MENU INCLUDE or by specifying multiple filenames.
         * The MENU COLOR statement can now control the shadowing mode.

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.

Title:          syslinux
Version:        3.31
Entered-date:   2006-09-25

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.
