Hi all,
  With the following changes


grub (0.97-29ubuntu47) jaunty; urgency=low

  [ Colin King ]

  * New patch, ext4_support now allows grub to boot from ext4 partitions.
    This patch orginated from Quentin Godfroy <godfroy at clipper.ens.fr>


util-linux (2.14-1ubuntu3) jaunty; urgency=low


  * debian/rules: Install rules into /lib/udev/rules.d instead
  * debian/util-linux.dirs: Create new location, don't create old.
  * debian/util-linux.preinst: Remove the old rules if unmodified.

and kernel 2.6.28 which is there since last week of december

ext4 has everything except support in ubiquity (the live CD installer)
and e2fsprogs

Is there any idea when these both will be in jaunty?
