grub-installer (1.39ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Show the grub menu and raise the menu timeout if other operating
      systems are installed (only for GRUB Legacy right now).
    - Ask grub-installer/only_debian at medium priority.
    - Remove splash boot parameter unless debian-installer/framebuffer=true.
    - If / or /boot are on a removable device, install GRUB there by
      default.
    - Only mount /target/proc if it isn't already mounted.
    - Support setting OVERRIDE_UNSUPPORTED_OS in the environment to force
      grub-installer to use its default MBR selection method despite there
      being unsupported operating systems on the disk.
    - Unless grub-installer/make_active is preseeded to false, mark the
      partition to which GRUB is being installed as bootable, or failing
      that the first available primary partition on the disk to which GRUB
      is being installed.
    - Support grub-installer/bootdev_directory preseeding to make use of the
      relative path feature of grub4dos, so that we can point grub4dos at
      part of a disk for Wubi. Setting this disables normal grub
      installation, but still generates a device.map; it also hides the
      menu.
    - Handle cases where /boot is bind-mounted.
    - Add support for writing an MBR on each disk in an mdadm-managed RAID
      providing /boot.
    - Properly make use of output from os-prober to configure the booting of
      other operating systems on dmraid arrays. Attempt to guess where in
      the device map the array belongs, by substituting the first drive in
      the dmraid array for the dmraid array device node itself, and removing
      any reference to other member disks of the array.
    - Add support for lpia.
    - Set a sensible default boot device when /cdrom is not iso9660, as this
      is probably a USB install and (hd0) does not make sense when
      installing from a removable disk.
    - Go back to using update-grub -y for GRUB Legacy for now; our grub
      package is a bit old and still requires this.
    - Default to grub2 for GPT systems.
    - Allow grub/grub2 choice for ext4, though still default to grub2.
  * If using grub2, then use ordinary grub-install for mdadm-managed RAID
    /boot rather than trying to implement it ourselves.

grub-installer (1.39) unstable; urgency=low

  * Merge from Ubuntu:
    - Use rootnoverify rather than root when chain-loading Microsoft
      operating systems using GRUB Legacy, since we may not be able to mount
      the partition (LP: #10661). From my reading of its code, this doesn't
      seem to be necessary with GRUB 2.
  * Extend rescue mode plugin to cope with GRUB 2.
  * Allow /boot on LVM; this forces use of GRUB 2 (LP: #393432).
  * Adjust partition offsets for GRUB 2. Moving to grub-probe would probably
    be better in the long run, but this works for now. See #473401, #502446.
  * Use search --fs-uuid rather than --fs_uuid in otheros.sh (LP: #396587).
