    Grub 2.0?

    Does anyone know if Grub 2.0 will be released anytime soon? I read something about it a couple of weeks ago, but after going to the Grub 2 website, I found no documentation on the topic. I know that Precise Pangolin is using Grub 1.99 but I am just curious as to the status of the 2.0 release.

    All I know is that I know nothing....

    1.98/1.99 were really both grub2. Off the top of my head I can't remember why the decision was made to # like this, but if they ever bump up it won't be like a huge release.

    It recently happened when VLC jumped to 2.0. It wasn't any real change they just renumbered it.

    We are now at the grub 2.0 release, finally. Grub 2.00 was released on June 27, 2012 and it is the current boot-loader for Ubuntu 12.10, within the next couple of months grub 2.00 will also be available for Ubuntu 12.04. One of the main features of this new release is not necessarily new, it's just been improved upon and it deals with booting on a UEFI motherboard.
