Dec 17, 1999: XOSL 1.1.0 released
- Hi everyone,
I'm very pleased to announce that XOSL 1.1.0 is finally officially released!
It took way too long, which also pretty much means more features are added
than initially planned.
Get it at http://www.xosl.org
The manual and the source code aren't yet available.
Make sure you read the readme.txt file before installing. It's got some
information that might concern you.
The install program is now completely menu driven. Install, Upgrade and
Uninstall are now fully implemented, for both installation on a FAT or on
a dedicated partition.
If you don't have DOS/Windows 9x, you can only install XOSL on a
dedicated partition. For this it uses a floppy image with FreeDOS.
One warning: FreeDOS is *extremely* slow with floppies!
Some notable new features:
1. Boot Microsoft operating systems off the 2nd, 3rd, ... drive, provided
that you hide all partitions on your first drive.
2. Reveal all hidden partitions when XOSL is started.
3. Solaris boot support. This is finally fixed, and now also Solaris should
Other than these, there are many minor enhancements.
I have been successfully using your boot manager on
several computers for some time now and I have been
recommending it to all my friends and also on the
PCPLUS LINUX FORUM.
I have just tried to access your web site to download
the latest version of XOSL but I am getting "THE
REQUESTED URL WAS NOT FOUND ON THIS SITE".
