101. By Colin Watson on 2013-12-05

Handle FusionIO devices, based on work by Igor Sharovar (LP: #1237519).

100. By St├ęphane Graber on 2013-07-19

Always use grub-efi-amd64-signed on 64bit UEFI systems instead of
relying on SecureBoot detection. (LP: #1184297)

99. By Colin Watson on 2012-11-12

If the SecureBoot EFI variable is set, then install
grub-efi-amd64-signed rather than grub-efi, along with shim-signed if
available; adjust removal handling to match (LP: #1075181).

98. By Colin Watson on 2012-04-11

Update Ubuntu-specific translations from Launchpad.

97. By Adam Conrad on 2011-09-29

Remove spurious newline from debian/po/bs.po, fixing ubiquity FTBFS.

96. By Colin Watson on 2011-09-29

Only process the output of os-prober into boot menu entries if we're
actually going to use them; if we're using GRUB 2 and os-prober is
installed, then it will deal with this itself and do a better job of it
(LP: #851704).

95. By Colin Watson on 2011-09-23

Really allow grub/grub2 choice for ext4 (lost in merge).

94. By Colin Watson on 2011-06-21

When /boot is on a loopback device (i.e. Wubi), install GRUB there.
This was always done the next time grub-install was run, but by mistake
wasn't done at initial installation.

93. By Colin Watson on 2011-05-31

Remove 'quiet' from target system command line if debian-installer/quiet
is set to false.

92. By Colin Watson on 2011-05-18

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Show the grub menu and raise the menu timeout if other operating
    systems are installed (only for GRUB Legacy right now).
  - Remove splash boot parameter unless debian-installer/framebuffer=true
    and debian-installer/splash=true.
  - If / or /boot are on a removable device, install GRUB there by
  - Only mount /target/proc if it isn't already mounted.
  - Support setting OVERRIDE_UNSUPPORTED_OS in the environment to force
    grub-installer to use its default MBR selection method despite there
    being unsupported operating systems on the disk.
  - Unless grub-installer/make_active is preseeded to false, mark the
    partition to which GRUB is being installed as bootable, or failing
    that the first available primary partition on the disk to which GRUB
    is being installed.
  - Support grub-installer/bootdev_directory preseeding to make use of the
    relative path feature of grub4dos, so that we can point grub4dos at
    part of a disk for Wubi. Setting this disables normal grub
    installation, but still generates a device.map (for GRUB Legacy only);
    it also hides the menu.
  - Handle cases where /boot is bind-mounted.
  - Add support for writing an GRUB Legacy MBR on each disk in an
    mdadm-managed RAID providing /boot. (GRUB 2 can handle this already.)
  - Properly make use of output from os-prober to configure the booting of
    other operating systems on dmraid arrays. Attempt to guess where in
    the device map the array belongs, by substituting the first drive in
    the dmraid array for the dmraid array device node itself, and removing
    any reference to other member disks of the array.
  - Go back to using update-grub -y for GRUB Legacy for now; our grub
    package is a bit old and still requires this.
  - Default to grub2 for GPT systems.
  - Allow grub/grub2 choice for ext4, though still default to grub2.
  - If /boot is on an MD device and we're using GRUB 2, install GRUB there
    rather than (hd0); GRUB 2 will interpret that as meaning that it needs
    to install to each of the RAID members.
  - If using GRUB 2 and installing to a RAID device any of whose
    components are partitions, then default to installing to the MBRs of
    each of the containing disks, since GRUB 2 will refuse to install to
    the partition devices.
  - Bind-mount /proc and /sys while running grub-install.
  - Update grub-installer/bootdev text to avoid GRUB device naming that
    changed between GRUB Legacy and GRUB 2, and to use libata-style device
    naming since that is more accurate for most people.
  - On i386/efi and amd64/efi subarchitectures, install grub-efi and purge
    grub, grub-legacy, and grub-pc; elsewhere, purge grub-efi*.
  - Don't ask for a boot device on EFI, and don't pass a boot device
    argument to grub-install.
  - Add a preseedable grub-installer/timeout template to adjust the
    initial GRUB timeout.
  - Install GRUB to the SATA RAID or multipath device when /boot is on
    such a device, rather than installing to the first hard disk.
  - Remove grub-gfxpayload-lists in situations where we need to remove
