It's been a while since last talking about Gummiboot
, the FreeDesktop.org project that serves as a simple UEFI boot manager, but it is still (slowly) progressing.
The Gummiboot project has been around for less than two years but as of yesterday they have put out 39 releases. While the early releases of Gummiboot tended to carry more weight, yesterday's release of Gummiboot v39
slows down the pace. Over the Gummiboot 38 release from two months ago, the only changes for this open-source UEFI boot manager are only adding the first OS X system found and handling CTRL-W within the line editor.
The Gummiboot 39 release isn't really noteworthy but the point of this announcement is namely to call attention to this open-source UEFI boot manager project for those that may have not come across it previously or are looking for a new free software project to dive into. More details on the project can be found via the FreeDesktop.org project page
