GRUB 0.5.92 is released

I'm pleased to announce the release of grub-0.5.92.

It is available as an unstable/main/binary-i386/base Debian package,
as well as a tar file from ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/hurd/misc/

New in 0.5.92 - 1999-07-26:
* Bug fixes (i.e. Stage 1.5 can work fine again).
* The /sbin/grub stage2 simulator now works at least on GNU/Linux, and
  uses the Linux HDIO_GETGEO ioctl to determine hard disk geometry.
* TAB not only lists filenames, but also completes a filename when the
  filename is unique.
* Password is not echoed back, put an asterisk for each of input
* stage2_debug is removed, and the debugging features are added into
* Color menu support.
* New command "quit".
* The man page for /sbin/grub.
* All documents become Texinfo.
* Linux video mode selection is supported.
* The new Stage 1 `stage1_lba' supports LBA addressing mode.

Thanks to all who made this release possible.  Special thanks to OKUJI
Yoshinori, who did nearly all the development work between 0.5.91 and
0.5.92.  I'm just acting as the release guy.
