daily.grml.org includes ISOs for the upcoming Debian release with codename "wheezy" (being Debian/testing nowadays). All daily ISOs starting with 18th of march also provide the brand new kernel 2.6.38-grml.
The workflow for grml-live distribution to the build server has been improved as well: once a day, right before the daily ISOs are being built, the build server automatically builds a Debian package based on the git tree of grml-live. This means all changes to grml-live.git end up on the daily ISOs on the next day without any manual intervention. The autobuilt packages are available at http://amd64.grml.org/grml-live-daily/.

Kernel 2.6.38-grml available Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 22:13
Only two days after Linus released Kernel 2.6.38 we already have it in the grml-testing repository! Besides the usual AUFS support it also features mainline's squashfs XZ support, meaning no extra squashfs patch needed anymore to get support for LZMA (now known as XZ). Our build tool grml-live(8) already supports this kernel version and uses XZ compression with squashfs-tools >=1:4.2-1 by default.
Please note: If you want to use current grml-live version (>=0.13.1) with older kernel versions than 2.6.38 don't forget to point SQUASHFS_BINARY to the according mksquashfs binary and set SQUASHFS_OPTIONS accordingly. If you want to build older versions without any hassles you can still use old grml-live versions of course (as provided and shipped with each Grml release).
Bottom line, XZ support in mainline (kernel >=2.6.38 and squashfs-tools >=4.2) will provide a better upgrade cycle for grml-live and the grml environment.

Kernel 2.6.35-grml available Posted by Michael Prokop in kernel at 10:24
Thanks to excellent work by Gebi the squashfs-lzma issue for the new kernel could be solved. Now I'm proud to be able to announce a full-featured kernel 2.6.35-grml which is available from the Grml grml-testing repository.
grml-live 0.11.0 is available as well, featuring support for kernel 2.6.35-grml. The new squashfs-lzma patches in kernel 2.6.35 aren't using the openwrt style format any longer but instead use the official on disk layout from mainline. That's why a new squashfs-tools package is required to properly support kernel 2.6.35-grml. This package is available as squashfs-lzma-tools4. All you've to do to get a kernel 2.6.35-grml based live system is upgrading to grml-live >=0.11.0, install squashfs-lzma-tools4 and grml-live will take care of the rest automatically for you. For further details regarding the current state of squashfs-lzma in Grml please have a look at the official grml-live documentation.
BTW: The current daily ISOs feature the new kernel version already, so give it a shot while it's hot! :)
