    Release Notes: This release improved the German translation, fixed problems with installing on OpenSuSE, improved detection of partition labels for filling the /boot/gujin.cmd file, and fixed a problem with generating the package on new Ubuntu versions.

      Release Notes: This release fixes a bug related to BIOS disk detection, improves the default /boot/gujin.cmd generated to make kernel updates use the same Linux commandline, fixes a bug in the TSR emulating a disk from a file, and enables booting the latest (by date) Linux kernel without user intervention.

        Release Notes: This release fixes a lot of bugs, like installing the bootloader and loading a Linux kernel on a highly fragmented ext2 filesystem (Fedora default /boot partition), probes files in a FAT /boot directory even if the size of this directory is null (now the standard), better handles the case of partitions without labels, and works better in VirtualBox. Gujin can now also load kernels on filesystems made with a different sector size than the underlying device allows, for instance having a 512 bytes/sector superfloppy written on a CDROM/DVDRAM with 2048 bytes/sectors.

          Release Notes: This release fixed a problem where Shift-F1 was not editing the Linux command line like Shift-F2..F12. A VirtualBox bug is now detected to disable VESA linear graphics. GCC 4.6 compilation fixes were added. A problem with the HP Compaq 8000 Elite BIOS was corrected. A file named gujin.sh is provided as an example to patch the init scripts of a Linux live CD to get it to boot from the live CD image file using Gujin.

            Release Notes: This version fixes bugs and regressions, removes the hard-coded sector size of disks (manages disks with 4096 bytes per logical sectors), improves booting live CDs stored on the hard disk as file images, and improves the "tiny" bootloaders for quick booting of simple configurations (like a PC with a single Linux distribution on an ext4 filesystem, or a live CD-ROM based on Gujin's own El-Torito bootloader).

              Release Notes: This version fixes a lot of bugs, allows you to review/edit the final command line by pressing Shift when selecting a kernel, recognizes the Rock Ridge extension on ISO9660 (filenames), and can boot more unmodified live CD-ROM images stored in the /boot directory (tested with NimbleX, sidux, Elive, Ubuntu, eeebuntu, and Linux Mint) with the help of a simple file named "gujin.cmd".

                Release Notes: This version fixes few bugs, mainly the regression that fails loading Windows when it is not located on BIOS disk 0x80 (possibly because you have booted from a USB key already taking BIOS disk 0x80). Two small bugs in the handling of /boot/gujin.cmd have been fixed, and detection of the keyboard and language currently in use are used to set the default for the bootloader.

                  Release Notes: The main improvements are in the handling of languages (English, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian, German, and Dutch) in the same installation, Linux command line parameters description in the file /boot/gujin.cmd, GPT partition tables, and handling of file images (e.g. ISO images are directly bootable without writing them to disk first).

                    Release Notes: Gujin can now run the newest kernel found automatically (by scanning the last modification date), it can scan file with *.iso extension and seach kernels/initrd inside them, and it is easier to install because pre-built packages for Debian and Fedora for both i386 and amd64 are provided for download. There is a new man page for the installer, a new option to remove the iso+superfloppy format from an ISO file, modifications to create filesystem images with holes to save space, and to detect bad blocks on real devices and mark them in the FAT filesystem. Quite a few bugs have also been fixed.

                      Release Notes: This release fixes SATA detection with PCI BIOS, screen definition detection, ISO images to superfloppy modification, and some ELF treatment bugs. Better FAT filesystems are now generated. A simplified "gujin" command was introduced to install and remove the bootloader. Examples are included to create your own directly bootable compressed ELF32 or ELF64 files with the kgz extension.
