Ah, "you". 

Okay, I thought you were referring to one of my posts.

Should the Release Notes are up-to-date there would have not need for any 
announcement on the matter.

Yes, the "goal" is there but how about its current status? The "Complete" 
section seems to be empty.

The last notice I had for the new feature was that someone started to 
make some packages for it as mentioned in debian-boot:


But this was done in his "personal" tree, and thus not widely available. 
Beyond that, I lose any track for this feature and given it was not 
advertized in testing Relase Notes nor announced elsewhere, I thought 
this was still "an ongoing work", that is, still not an option.
