grml-live (0.17.0) unstable; urgency=low
1) The sources.list handling has been further improved and
better integrated, config variable $GRML_LIVE_SOURCES has gone.
2) This release provides initial support for generating netboot
packages during build process (enabled by default).
3) If the according dependencies are available (xorriso
>=1.1.6-1 on buildsystem, grub-efi-amd64-bin inside chroot and
building using AMD64 class) then the ISOs provide initial UEFI
4) For better integration with Jenkins a report of missing
packages in xunit format is generated and new options -A (for
ensuring clean builds and pack artifacts), -T (for unpacking
chroot archives) and -U (to ensure output files ownership) has
been introduced.
5) Using the SOURCES class provides support to retrieve Debian
package sources in the build process.

grml-live (0.15.0) unstable; urgency=low
1) The new command line option -D supports setting a
configuration directory instead of /etc/grml/fai. This is
the same as setting GRML_FAI_CONFIG.
2) Removed /etc/grml/fai/apt/sources.list, thanks to a redesign
of sources.list handling which provides a more consistent
approach. /etc/apt/sources.list will no longer use entries from
GRML_LIVE_SOURCES once the system has been initially installed.
Now handling of sources.list works as follows:
is generated based on $GRML_LIVE_SOURCES (if set by the user,
otherwise falling back to Grml repositories plus Debian). This
GRML_LIVE_SOURCES_LIST file then gets deployed on *fresh*
deployments. It won't be installed again when running grml-live
-u. This provides more flexibility combined with a more
transparent and consistent behaviour for the user.
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list will be set up based on the
detected Debian suite and the files from
/etc/apt/sources.list/grml-stable.list will be deployed and
(depending on the build type) also
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/grml-testing.list might be installed.

grml-live (0.9.35) unstable; urgency=low
The files from /etc/grml/fai/files have been moved to
/etc/grml/fai/config/files (and as a consequence
/etc/grml/fai/live-initramfs has been moved to
/etc/grml/fai/config/ as well). This is an important step
to use the config space and class concept of FAI in a more
decent and clean way. It allows much better customization.
Please notice: If you didn't modify anything inside
/etc/grml/fai/files you can safely remove the directory.
Otherwise please check out the structure of the new
/etc/grml/fai/config/files layout and the fcopy command
used in /etc/grml/fai/config/scripts/GRMLBASE/* scripts to
incoorporate your changes.

grml-live (0.9.34) unstable; urgency=low
This version introduces an additional package named grml-live-db.
The grml-live-db Debian package provides a simple way to put build
information of grml-live into a database. By default you have to do
nothing but install grml-live-db and during each invocation of
grml-live you'll get an additional entry in the sqlite3 database
/var/log/grml-live.db. If you want to customize the database logging
check out the grml-live-db manpage.
Instead of ZERO_LOGFILE a new variable titled PRESERVE_LOGFILE has
been introduced. By default grml-live cleans the build logfile so
grml-live-db can work straight out-of-the-box. If you still want to
preserve your logfiles (e.g. when you don't want to use
grml-live-db) just enable the PRESERVE_LOGFILE option in your
grml-live configuration file. For backwards compatibility reasons the
ZERO_LOGFILE variable is still supported within grml-live but it's
strongly recommended to adjust configuration.

grml-live (0.9.4) unstable; urgency=low
grml provides its own squashfs-tools again which support LZMA
compression with kernel 2.6.26-grml[64], please install the
Debian package squashfs-lzma-tools of the grml repository.
More details can be found in the grml-live docs. Please
check out the section "Current state of grml-live with
squashfs-tools and kernel" in the grml-live docs, being
shipped with this package as manpage grml-live(8) and
/usr/share/doc/grml-live/grml-live.html and being available
online at as well.
grml migrated from Mercurial (hg) to Git as version control
system. If you are interested in using very recent grml-live
versions from our VCS please make sure to check out the docs.

grml-live (0.9) unstable; urgency=low
grml-live 0.9 features kernel 2.6.26-grml[64]. Using
squashfs-tools 1:3.2r2-9exp1 does not work with kernel
2.6.26-grml when using LZMA compression though it works
fine when using ZLIB compression.
Debian provides updated squashfs-tools 1:3.3-7. You can
safely upgrade as long as you don't need kernel
2.6.23-grml[64] and/or LZMA compression.
All these details can be found in the grml-live docs. Please
check out the section "Current state of grml-live with
squashfs-tools and kernel" in the grml-live docs, being
shipped with this package as manpage grml-live(8) and
/usr/share/doc/grml-live/grml-live.html and being available
online at as well.

grml-live (0.0.4) unstable; urgency=low
The -t option for specifying the output directory has been
renamed into -o. The option -t now specifies the place where
templates for building the ISO can be found.
Do not forget to adjust present scripts you use with grml-live.
