    New build (29276) uploaded.

    Features several bugfixes (from older betas and previous versions).
    Important changes:
    * Short file names for Linux loaders are used unless a file already exists, and so the extended format is deployed instead. (e.g. nst_grub.mbr vs nst_grub-1234...555.mbr)
    * Fixed update-checker to not crash if network settings are broken
    * Removed some dependencies (smaller setup size)
    * Some other stuff......

    (If you received email notification twice - sorry, the first time it didn't go out right).

    Build 36323 uploaded.

    Fixes regression bug with grubless installs (where you get a blank menu.lst)
    Adds experimental support for bypassing driver signing on x64. (please test!)


    Important note
    When testing the experimental x64 option, please create a new entry and enable bypassing driver signing for that entry - just in case something goes wrong you'll have your old entry to get back into Vista with.

    Build 27176 has just been uploaded.

    Tons of new goodies, including detection of extended partitions, adavanced DOS/Win9x support (via bootsect.dos), several bug fixes, smaller setup, support for loading operating systems from an implicit boot drive, several bugfixes, and a lot of other things.

    This will most likely be the final 1.61 beta build if no bugs are found! Please test it thoroughly, and report any functional or cosmetic bugs you find!

    Build 63 uploaded. Automates copying of NTLDR and NTDETECT to boot partitions. Tested against the hidden boot partition in Windows 7, works great.

    Please test and provide feedback, thanks :)
