I pushed out Syslinux 3.85-pre5 out today.  This is now an official 
release candidate.  There are some additional changes that still might 
make it in, mostly related to chain.c32, but this version should be 
mostly stable.

PXELINUX has changed *significantly*.  These changes are to support an 
updated version of gPXELINUX.  With these changes, gPXELINUX is supposed 
to finally be feature complete -- local boot and chainloading should now 
work (hopefully) as well as plain PXELINUX.

I am *very* concerned about the potential for regression with PXELINUX 
as a result, so if you have an opportunity, please test it, and let me 
know the result (good or bad.)

As always, prerelease builds are at:


Many thanks,
