The refind-bin file contains rEFInd binaries and filesystem driver binaries for use on an EFI System Partition (ESP). The refind-bin-tiano file is just as above, but built using the TianoCore EDK2 rather than GNU-EFI. The two packages SHOULD behave identically, but it's possible there are some subtle differences. For the moment, the GNU-EFI build is the official binary package, but I would appreciate testing of the TianoCore build. The refind-cd file contains a bootable CD image file; burn it to an optical disc and you should be able to boot rEFInd to test it without installing it on your hard disk. This image is more likely to work on PCs than on Macs; at least on some early Intel-based Macs, the CD boot process has special requirements that this image doesn't meet. This image includes four EFI filesystem drivers, as well as an open source EFI shell that's not included in the other packages, which can make it useful for some simple emergency recovery tasks on an EFI computer. The refind-src file contains the source code to rEFInd (both the main program and the EFI filesystem drivers), which you can build yourself. The build process is based on Linux and uses the GNU-EFI library (for the main rEFInd program) and the TianoCore toolkit (for the EFI filesystem drivers). It may be possible to adapt the build process to work under OS X or Windows, but you're on your own if you try this.
