The GRUB2 boot-loader now has support for the Flash-Friendly File-System so it can boot to systems formatted with F2FS as the root file-system.

F2FS lead developer Jaegeuk Kim authored this file-system support addition for GRUB. Previously the work was carried by OpenMandriva among other distributions while now is upstream in GRUB Git for allowing /boot to be on a F2FS-formatted partition.

The code is in Git ahead of GRUB 2.04 expected later this year.

Other features coming for GRUB 2.04 are support for multiple early initrd images, UEFI / TPM support improvements along with better ARM support and more.
