-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.+==== Current tarball releases ====
-Some of the demos we we did included:+Though ​we recommend and encourage use of **[[:​download|our git repository]]** to download gPXE and Etherboot releases, ​we also provide tarballs:
-  * Booting Linux over AOE  ([[http://www.coraid.com/]]) using gPXE +  * gPXE release tarballs: ​[[http://kernel.org/pub/software/utils/​boot/​gpxe/]] (preferred, supported, PXE compatible)
-  * 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.+  * Etherboot release tarballs: [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​etherboot/​]] (legacy, maintenance-mode support)
-**Update**+ --- //​[[mdc@etherboot.org|Marty Connor]] 2008/​09/​26//​
-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.+----
-**Update 13 March 2007**+{{ http://​code.google.com/​images/​code_sm.png?​153x55|GSoC logo}} 
 +==== 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//​
