Hi all,

I have released SYSLINUX 2.09; it is the same as 2.09-pre15 except for 
the version number.

Changes in 2.09:
         * SYSLINUX: Remove residual setuid crap from
         * Handle video pages correctly when using the API functions.
         * Handle compiling on an x86-64 platform correctly.
         * Menu system from Murali Krishnan Ganapathy; see the menu
           directory for information.
         * COMBOOT: Allow COMBOOT programs to change screen text mode.
         * COMBOOT: Correct the documentation of how to detect
           SYSLINUX from COMBOOT!!!!
         * COMBOOT: Fix "get key without echo" API function.
         * SYSLINUX: Fix bug that affected the API open function.
         * ALL: Improve the E820 memory parser, to work around some
           buggy BIOSes.

I have *also* released 2.10-pre1, which adds Patrick LoPresti's support 
for zipped (as opposed to gzipped) images in MEMDISK; some Windows-based 
tools apparently can handle zipped images but not gzipped, and this 
makes it easier to just drop them in.
