-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.+  * Prebuilt binaries: [[http://​rom-o-matic.net/​gpxe/​gpxe-1.0.0/​contrib/​rom-o-matic/​]]
  
-Some of the demos we we did included: +  ​Source code: [[:download|our git repository]]
-  ​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.+  * gPXE release tarballs: [[http://​kernel.org/​pub/​software/​utils/​boot/​gpxe/​]]
  
-**Update**+Changes from 0.9.9 include:
  
-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 CorporationOne necessary part for iSCSI boot in Windows is the iBFT data structure which Microsoft claims is proprietary at this time.+  New commands: iwstat and iwlist ​for wireless management. ​ New drivers: skge 
 +  and myri10ge. ​ WEP, WPA, and WPA2 wireless encryption support. ​   New settings
