Bump to 8.04.2

506. By Agostino Russo on 2008-07-08

* Use the registry instead of exedir to detect the installation drive,
  as the latter is inadequate when the uninstaller self-extracts and
  runs off a temp folder (LP: #246201)

505. By Agostino Russo on 2008-07-05

* Reverted CD file copying changes in favor of ISO extraction because
  python-apt does not get along well with a bindmounted /cdrom
  directory (LP: #207137 #243105)

504. By Agostino Russo on 2008-06-24

* Partially reverted makefile changes in rev503 since they introduced
  a regression in wubi-selfextract (LP: #242682)

503. By Agostino Russo on 2008-06-16

* Grub4dos was not set to rev 59 which addresses the Gate A20 jam (LP
  #224311)
* Build both selfextracting and normal binary

502. By Agostino Russo on 2008-06-13

* Modified embedded menu.lst as suggested by tinybit to allow for
  proper fallbacks
* Detect country using iCountry as opposed to sCountry, which is
  localized (LP: #223250)
* Use warnings instead of errors when resource checks fail (LP:
  #223155)
* No longer in beta
* Fixed race condition in Vista BCD editing (LP: #227023)
* Updated metalink URLs to point to 8.04.1
* Use Bias instead of ActiveTimeBias to detect timezone (LP: #221192)
* Added 7z self extracting capabilities to avoid problems when the CD
  is ejected and Wubi is run from the CD (LP: #204128)
* Delete installation files upon successful installation (LP: #223001)
* Better not to patch grub4dos to change default strings, since the
  change in the text notifications created some confusion and
  debugging issues.
* Upgraded grub4dos to rev 59 which addresses the Gate A20 jam (LP
  #224311)
* Set version in settings to 8.04.1
* Added more logging info to installer_bootloader in order to help
  with #225068
* Turn on debugging and boot in verbose mode when booting workarounds
  are turned on
* Copy the CD files instead of extracting an ISO image (LP: #207137)
* Build a selfextracting binary by default (LP: #204128)
* When uninstalling only remove the directory containing the
  uninstaller (LP: #236741)
* Updated translations (LP: #221167)
