-==== Etherboot Project at LinuxWorld Expo! ====+==== gPXE-1.0.0 released ​====
  
-We attended our 11th [[http://​linuxworldexpo.com/​|LinuxWorld Expo]] in August, and things went very well!+The Etherboot project has released gPXE-1.0.0 after over five years of development. ​ This major milestone release is now available:
  
-We had a webcam ​[[http://etherboot.org/lwe-webcam|webcam]] in our booth during show hours, and views of San Francsisco at other times.+  * Prebuilt binaries: ​[[http://rom-o-matic.net/gpxe/gpxe-1.0.0/​contrib/​rom-o-matic/​]]
  
-At this show we demonstrated a pre-release of gPXE, the next generation (and a rewrite) of Etherboot to enhance PXE compatibility,​ and add new capabilities.+  * Source code: [[:​download|our git repository]]
  
-Some of the demos we we did included: +  * gPXE release tarballs: [[http://kernel.org/pub/software/utils/​boot/​gpxe/]]
-  * Booting Linux over AOE  ([[http://www.coraid.com/]]) using gPXE +
-  * Booting Windows Server 2003 over iSCSI using gPXE +
-  * Booting Linux using [[http://syslinux.zytor.com/pxe.php|PXELINUX]] and gPXE +
-  * gPXE's HTTP support for loading files+
  
-Traffic at the booth was brisk, and we met a lot of new people who are interested in our technology.+Changes from 0.9.9 include:
  
-**Update**+  New commands: iwstat and iwlist for wireless management. ​ New drivers: skge 
 +  and myri10ge. ​ WEP, WPA, and WPA2 wireless encryption support. ​   New settings 
 +  variables: "​netX"​ for last opened netdev and "​netX/​busid"​ for network device 
 +  bus ID.  New special image types: .hrom and .xrom to work around BIOS 
 +  limitations.
  
-Please note that some of the code for iSCSI booting of Windows has been temporarily taken out of the gPXE codebase at the request of Microsoft Corporation. One necessary part for iSCSI boot in Windows is the iBFT data structure which Microsoft claims is proprietary at this time.+ --- //​[[mdc@etherboot.org|Marty Connor]] 2010/​02/​10//​

 +==== Google Tech Talk Video ====
  
-Microsoft has released an iBFT specifications document which requires agreeing to Microsoft License Agreement to download.  We have asked the [[http://​softwarefreedom.org|Software Freedom Law Center]] to examine the required license ​and give us an opinion on whether ​we can safely release open source code based on the specification.+Marty Connor, Michael Brown, and H. Peter Anvin gave Google Tech talk recently at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California.  We highlighted ​the new features of gPXE, PXELINUX, ​and how we have advanced the state of the art in network booting.
  
-**Update 9 August 2007**+**Video of the talk is available [[http://​video.google.com/​videoplay?​docid=1911723796712805715|here]].**
  
-IBM has released the iBFT specification document under GPL-friendly terms. ​ The iBFT code, based on the IBM document, is now back in the codebase. ​ [[:sanboot|Enjoy!]]+ --- //[[mdc@etherboot.org|Marty Connor]] 2008/​09/​26//​
