The changes in this release are as follows:
This release contains a number of bugfixes, as well as a new
COMBOOT/COM32 API interface which should make it possible to write
user interface plugins.
SYSLINUX is a boot loader for the Linux operating system which
operates off of MS-DOS floppies. It is intended to simplify
first-time installation of Linux, rescue disks, and other uses for
boot floppies. A SYSLINUX floppy can be manipulated using standard
MS-DOS (or any other OS that can access an MS-DOS filesystem) tools
once it has been created, and requires only a ~ 8K DOS program or ~
16K Linux program to create it in the first place. It also includes
PXELINUX, a program to boot off a network server using a boot PROM
compatible with the Intel PXE (Pre-Execution Environment)
specification, ISOLINUX, a program to boot off ISO 9660 CD-ROMs in
native mode, and MEMDISK, a tool to boot legacy operating systems
(e.g. DOS) using a Linux boot loader regardless of medium.
