Gummiboot 41 was released this weekend with new features and was followed immediately by Gummiboot 42 to correct the build system for this open-source simple UEFI boot manager.

Gummiboot now boasts the previously covered splash screen support. Gummiboot 41 also adds support for a background color setting, supports using the alpha channel for graphics, and other small changes. Gummiboot 41 came just one week after Gummiboot 40 and consists of about 20 commits by Kay Sievers and Tom Gundersen.

Gummiboot 42 then was released just hours later due to the build system in Gummiboot 41 being broken.

Details on all of the changes to this simple UEFI boot manager can be found via the Git repository log. For those unfamiliar with this UEFI boot manager can visit its FreeDesktop.org site.
