    Phoronix: GRUB 2.04 Should Be Released Later This Year

    It's been nine months since the release of GRUB 2.02 while the GRUB 2.04 stable release should be out by year's end...

    Slowly but surely, that's the right thing to do !

    Besides, any idea of why most distributions switched to Grub 2.0.2 Beta instead of sticking to 2.0.0 ?

      It'd be nice if it would support zstd, so that my grub would stop showing me an error when I start my system (even though it's still boots eventually).

          Support for zstd would be great, but I guess until it is available, I will have switched all my machines to systemd-boot.

            Systemd-boot lacks a lot of stuff thst grub has. I dunno why pisshead lennart keeps it around

                Does the current version already support booting from F2FS, or is it the one that's coming the end of the year that will support it?

                  Does anyone know if it solves the issues in booting some apollo lake systems that so far required refind? (see https://linuxiumcomau.blogspot.com/2...buntu-and.html)

                    What it supports is up to your UEFI not systemd.
