Today I decided to implement a new bootsplash layout. Vesamenu of the isolinux project worked fine during our tests so I decided we should think about making it to grml's default. My implementation in grml-live allows you to fall back to the old bootsplash layout via enabling one single configuration option (being: ISOLINUX_METHOD=console) and you can even get the old function keys layout back during runtime using the 'Further boot options...' entry. It should become part of the daily ISOs soon. Hopefully our next development release shows that users like it and it doesn't cause any problems.
So that's what I'm talking about - grml's new bootsplash in its current layout:
