    Subject[announce] Gujin GPL bootloader version 2.8.5
    There is a new version v2.8.5 of the GPL Gujin boot/linux loader at (i.e. sourceforge)
    with bug fixes and improvements, and Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora packages in 32 and 64 bits for easy
    installation on i386/amd64 PC.

    This version contains quite a lot of bug fixes, changelog is:
    - Fix (error loading file 0x3401) loading kernel on highly fragmented ext2 partitions
    - Fix a bug when /boot/gujin.ebios created not contiguous
     (hdparm --fibmap /boot/gujin.ebios), and enable uninstalling those not contigous
     files (happens on highly fragmented 1024 bytes/block ext2 partitions)
    - Fix a problem when MBR has 0x29 signature but invalid bytes/sectors
    - Fix a bug where /boot directories were not probed on FAT (directory entries contains
     null size on FAT)
    - Behaves better when partitions do not have a label, use PBR label or Gujin "part n"
    - no more compile with "-funsigned-char", fix bugs about mixed sector sizes in iso images
    (loading kernel on 512 bytes/sector FAT filesystem written on a CDROM/DVDRAM)
    - add "relro" linker
    flags for the installer
    - Re-enable PCI I/O space of PCI IDEs if disabled by BIOS (when BIOS finds no disk)
    - fix possible problem with BIOS disk nb_heads=256
    - add docs for changing Linux parameter by Shift-Fn or Shift-mouse, and
     Control-Break behaviour
    - add probing for /sys/block/sr[0-9] for "gujin --report-signature"
    - update to support PCI BIOS v3.0+ which is not fully backward compatible,
     and use VirtualBox bug.
    - Fix to handle older HP BIOS bugs
    - update GPG signature, add new encryption/signature subkeys
