Besides replying to all the mails receiving my grml-mailbox in those days I'm trying to improve some stuff at grml of course. In the next few days we'll have another grml-developer-meeting and we will discuss what will be main features of grml 0.5.
What's currently on the todo-list:

working on an usb-stick variant of grml Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 11:04
Yesterday I've been working for an USB-stick variant of grml. I could reduce the ISO from nearly 700 MB down to 307 MB:
% ls -lah grml_0.4b.iso -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 307M 2005-05-16 12:40 grml_0.4b.iso
All the documentation, LaTeX and stuff like emacs had to leave. Booting still works as intented to, even X is running. ;-) Now I've to reduce the iso for another 51 MB so we can provide a grml-ISO for a 256 MB stick.

Yesterday Gebi, Jimmy and me had a final devel-session for the upcoming grml release 0.4.
We did some bugfixing, improved grml2hd once again and tested grml-terminalserver via a crossover cable from my laptop to jimmys one. We could boot grml via PXE and via floppy-disk. Gebi, you did an awfull good job on grml-terminalserver! :-)

kernel 188.8.131.52 and some other stuff... Posted by Michael Prokop in general at 13:35
grml release 0.4 will be based upon kernel 184.108.40.206. The kernel build has been finished, documentation has been updated (see http://grml.org/kernel-devel/ - but not yet finished) and grml 0.3-7 is running with the kernel:
grml@grml ~ % uname -a
On friday Gebi presented me his grml-terminalserver which let's you boot on computers without CD-ROM but with PXE-cabable NICs. It works even on computers witout PXE using a floppy-drive. Woot! Some minor issues have to be fixed before releasing grml 0.4 with the grml-terminalserver, Gebi is working hard. ;-)
I wrote and tested the script grml-vpnc-tugraz which let's you connect to WLAN at TU Graz via vpnc. It will be part of grml 0.4 of course.
Now grml-hwinfo collects information of your hardware and writes everything to a file namend info.tar.bz2. Now we can get all information required to fix bugs reported by grml-users quite easy.
Several useful scripts also got part of grml-scripts, many updates in grml-etc. Just some minor issues have to be resolved, documentation has to become up2date and then grml 0.4 will be available!
